Darren Aronofsky to Direct, Wolverine 2 Not to Suck Wildly?

Senior Contributor

That image at right isn’t Wolverine in the throes of wild animal rage: it’s Hugh Jackman realizing the first Wolverine really kinda sucked.

I’m actually torn about the first Wolverine, because it actually has some truly great intentionally funny moments in between all the unintentionally funny ones. And Hugh Jackman is absolutely great in it. That said, most of it sucks, especially keyboard-controlled Not-Deadpool.

So the news that Darren Aronofsky, who has made some of the greatest movies of the last twenty years, including one of the few science fiction movies that isn’t about nuking aliens (“The Fountain”), is pretty close to directing a script by Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote the two X-Men movies that don’t suck and a few other good movies, means we might actually finally have a Wolverine movie that’s not an embarrassment.

We hope.
