If I was more clever, I would have devised some sort of "Crisis" joke that involved Christopher and Jonah Nolan as supervillains who were slowly but surely conquering the DC comics universe and bending it two their will. You know, something along the lines of "First they got Batman. Now they have Superman. Who are they going after next?"

But alas, it's not that funny and not that clever, so let's skip humorous introductions and get straight down to brass tacks. We all know that Christopher Nolan is going to "Godfather" the newest Superman reboot, The Man of Steel. IESB is reporting that he is doing so because he wants to help guide Jonah into the the director's chair.

Whoah. What? It is confirmed that Jonah Nolan will be writing the screenplay with longtime collaborator David Goyer, but if this is true, it kinda' makes sense. It would explain Christopher Nolan's odd "Godfather" role, for sure. Is Jonah as talented behind the camera as his brother? Can he maintain pacing and story? Can he maybe-perhaps shoot an action scene that doesn't look like the film went through a blender?

Of course, this is all unconfirmed, so take it with a grain of salt. Or two grains of salt. Or a truck full. Because things get even wilder.
