Only a scant few weeks after Warner Bros. announced Wolfgang Petersen would be directing BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN starting in January, 2003, comes news the AIR FORCE ONE director has decided to direct TROY first. >
The story, set against the Trojan War, is based on Homers' THE ILIAD. The report, which is a kick in the head to comic fans everywhere hoping for a good BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN crossover, comes with the assurance Petersen will still be working on the film, but will shoot it after TROY. The one hope, given this film game out of nowhere to sideline BATMAN, is that for once the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER got it wrong, and when the dust settles Petersen's schedule will have SUPERMAN going first. >
Yes. It's a slim hope. >
