UPDATE: Christopher Nolan has disputed the Guardian‘s report. By way of clarification, the filmmaker released the following statement: “I would never say someone else’s film isn’t ‘a real film.’ The quote is inaccurate.”
ORIGINAL STORY (4:44 p.m. ET, Nov. 4, 2014): Between the concluding chapter of his Dark Knight trilogy and this week’s space epic Interstellar, Christopher Nolan helped Warner Bros. reboot the Superman franchise with 2013’s Man of Steel. Nolan received a “story by” credit on the film and served in a producer/godfather role, although it’s never been entirely clear how involved he was in the making of Man of Steel.
