/Film are reporting that the AICN James McTeigue report was in fact false:
Sorry to get you guys all excited but I have just gotten confirmation from two independent sources that the report was completely false. I don’t know if an interview with James McTeigue actually aired on RTL1 or not (I’m guessing not) but The Wachowski Brothers have definitely never had any talks with DC or Warner Bros to helm a Superman film. This is confirmed.

phew There is still hope that wb will change their mind concerning the reboot. personally superman returning again won’t do so bring the sequel.
Now that David S. Goyer Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are writing Superman: Man Of Steel and executive producing it Warner Bros. should hire producers Guy Ritchie and Quentin Tarantino costume designer James Acheson cinematographer Don Burgess composers John Williams and Robert Rodriguez visual and special effects designers Scott Stockdyk and John Dykstra along with co-producers Oliver Stone and Martin Scorsesse co-executive producer
Sam Raimi and director Steven Speilberg.
In Superman Returns (2006) the Superman costume from its predecessors: Superman (1978) Superman II (1980) Superman III (1983) and Superman IV: The Quest For Peace (1987) was not meant to be updated so in Superman: Man Of Steel (2013) the chest’s S emblem should be a couple of inches larger and sewn onto the suit
instead of a sculped medallion and its colours should be a bright
red and yellow the costume’s colours should be a slightly brighter blue with a scarlet red cape underpants and leather boots and a brighter more vibrant yellow belt with no S logo
and the cape should have a yellow S logo sewn onto it as well and
an unknown actor about 6’3–6’4 with dark brown (almost black) hair blue eyes and a resemblance to Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh should be cast as Superman/Clark Kent.
When the unknown actor gets cast as Superman/Clark Kent and wears an exact replica of the Man Of Steel’s classic bright red blue and yellow costume that the late great Christopher Reeve wore in Superman I II III and IV (1978–1987) as Superman he should wear large brown rimmed semi-round glasses as Clark Kent
Reese Witherspoon should portray Lois Lane Bruce Willis should portray Lex Luthor and Leonardo Dicaprio should portray Darksied
with Sean Connery as Jor-El as well as Frank Langella and Sam Huntington reprising their roles as Perry White and Jimmy Olsen.
