Darren Aronofsky added to shortlist of potential Wolverine 2 directors + Updates on director hunt for Deadpool and Liebesman will direct Clash of the Titans 2 [UPDATE]

Deadline is reporting that Darren Aronofsky is being targeted, along with David Slade, as a potential director for X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2. Last week it was reported that David Slade, along with Robert Schwentke, were two of the studio’s top choices for the film. Deadline confirms that Schwentke was in the mix — and was going to meet with star Hugh Jackman — but has since opted out of the competition. Slade continues to be the frontrunner:

On the X-Men: Wolverine 2 front, 20th Century Fox is between David Slade and Darren Aronofsky, I’m told. Slade, who just directed the summer hit The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, met over the weekend with Jackman on location where he is shooting Real Steel for DreamWorks. Aronofsky has also been talking with Jackman, and they have a good relationship that dates back to The Fountain, when Jackman stepped in after Brad Pitt dropped out. Jackman holds a lot of clout in the decision and while Aronofsky has some momentum of his own because of Black Swan, I’d say Slade has the edge.

In other director news, Warner Brother and Legendary Pictures are still working out a deal with Jonathan Liebesman to direct a sequel [UPDATE: Variety and Heat Vision are reporting that Liebesman has signed onto the project] to the nearly $500M-grossing worldwide hit Clash of the Titans (Louis Leterrier won’t return to direct the sequel):

I’m told they are far apart on money. Leterrier has been meeting on blockbusters, and was Fox’s fall back choice after the studio met directors for X-Men Origins: First Class when Matthew Vaughn dropped out for a weekend, and then came back to accept the assignment.

News on the Deadpool project after the jump.
