Why? Nolan is another director who has picked up where Aronofsky has left off... sort of.
Aronofsky was working on an adaptation of Frank Miller's Batman: Year One at the turn of the millennium (and Christian Bale was rumoured to be attached), but after the project fell through, Nolan later reinvented the Bat with his own prequel. Key Scene: Nolan's always keen to explore the murky morality of his heroes, so we'd be looking out for an early scene in which a memory-wiped Wolverine discovers that his brute strength will get him far on the mean streets of Japan. Likelihood? Nil. The best you could probably get out of him would be some sort of 'Godfather' role in the production.
