Rumor Killer: The Wachowski Brothers NOT Offered Superman Reboot

Remember that report that showed up on AICN last week claiming that The Wachowski Brothers had been offered a reboot of Superman? 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.
