Rumors swirled yesterday that 'Incredible Hulk' director Louis Leterrier may have been offered the job of directing the next 'Superman' movie. However, more informed reports appearing later in the day have proven that rumor false.
The story started when Ain't it Cool ran a tranlsation of an inteview the director did with a French language website. Their scooper claims "Leterrier indeed says that 'maybe they have already asked me' about directing 'Superman 2'."
However the director himself contacted the site to clarify his comments, which appeared as an update to their article the same day.
"What I meant was that I had been told about a possible reinvention of 'Superman'. Not that I was offered the job," Leterrier told them.
So there you have it. No 'Incredible Man of Steel' for you.
