Christopher Nolan To 'Godfather' SUPERMAN!?!? Oh Yeah, There's Another BAT Movie Being Written Now, Too!!

Merrick here...
The folks over at Deadline are on fire this week! They just told us about the disposition of TERMINATOR rights (HERE) & now they have word on what's going down with the next SUPERMAN film.
Our insiders say that the brains behind rebooted Batman has been asked to play a "godfather" role and ensure The Man Of Steel gets off the ground after a 3 1/2-year hiatus.

Referring to Nolan's forthcoming Warner title INCEPTION:
While Nolan completes that Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer for a July 16th release, he's also hatched an idea for Warner Bros' third Batman installment. Now his brother and frequent collaborator Jonah Nolan, and David Goyer who co-wrote Batman Begins and penned the story for The Dark Knight, are off scripting it. [EDIT] As one of our insiders reassures: “It would definitely not be a followup to Superman Returns."
...say Mike Fleming and Nikki Finke in an interesting article HERE. My first instinct was that I hope poor Christopher Nolan doesn't become the "go to" person for these kind of adaptations. At the same time, when I think about the matter very carefully, Nolan meets nearly ever criteria I have in terms of the sensibilities I'd like to see brought to the table for a SUPERMAN project - I think he'd be a magnificent shepherd as such. Personally, I'd love to see a bit of DARK KNIGHT's gritty maturity injected into SUPERMAN, but I'd also hate to see such an approach become a predictable formula.
