Read the first two parts of the interview with the director on CHUD.com (part1) (part 2) and this guy actually sounds like he's going to make a fair attempt at it. He seems to understand the comic and he respects the vibe and the themes and his previous work is pretty good.

He also has some good Ideas about making it relavent to the present Geo-political situation and isn't going to shy away from the political angle.

This is the best news on the project since Aronofsky left!
