SUPERMAN movie directors in the running from left to right: DUNCAN JONES, JONATHAN LIEBESMAN, MATT REEVES, TONY SCOTT, ZACK SNYDER
On the list: Unstoppable’s Tony Scott, Let Me In director Matt Reeves, Battle: Los Angeles helmer Jonathan Liebesman (who just got the Warner Bros/Legendary job of directing Clash of the Titans 2), Duncan Jones, who just directed Source Code, and Sucker Punch helmer Zack Snyder.

Nolan has already started meeting with candidates and will submit his choice to the studio within the next few weeks.

Warner Bros and Legendary have to get the picture made by 2012, because the studio stands to lose certain rights to the iconic character in 2013 after a judge ruled favorably on behalf of the heirs of Superman creator Jerry Siegel.
