Christopher Nolan, finally finished with his Batman trilogy, has answered rumors speculating that he has plans to make a Justice League film featuring the Dark Knight, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. The rumors began after the filmmaker’s involvement as a producer on next summer’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel, but Nolan has assured us that he is in fact, NOT working on the rumored Justice League film.
“No, none at all,” Nolan said in an interview over the weekend. “We’re finished with all we’re doing with Batman. This is the end of our take on this character.”
Nolan also added that he has no plans for involvement with any solo Batman films when distributor Warner Bros., owner of DC Comics, decides to launch a new take on the classic character.
“Batman will outlive us all, and our interpretation was ours,” Nolan said. “Obviously, we consider it definitive and kind of finished. The great thing about Batman is he lives on for future generations to reinterpret, and obviously, Warners will have to decide in the future what they’re going to do with him. We’ve had our say on the character.”
Nolan reiterated that he will have “…certainly, no involvement with any Justice League project.”
After Disney’s Marvel’s The Avengers, the big-screen adaptations of Marvel Comics superheroes has pulled in $1.45 billion worldwide, and viewers are speculating that Warner Bros. might create its own ensemble film and where better to start than with the much loved Justice League series?
Nolan’s 2005 trilogy-opener Batman Begins broke box office records, and its 2008 sequel The Dark Knight won an Academy Award for Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker.Fans across the world are eagerly awaiting the finale feature to hit theaters this summer on July 20th that will see the addition of Cat Woman and Bane as major antagonists in the film.
