Rothman told Collider
that Trank "is going to come on and work on a take, or a vision, that he has for it, so we're very excited about that".
Trank's specific involvement on the project remains unconfirmed.
"Well, I think there's a possibility of [him directing]," said Rothman. "I mean he's going to develop it now, and then it depends on the script."

of the classic Marvel franchise in January.
He has also been linked to Sony's Spider-Man
and Warner Bros comic adaptation The Red Star
