In today’s edition of unsurprising non-twists in news, Christopher Nolan has said he will have no involvement with Warner Brother’s and DC’s Justice League film.
As I said, this is not surprising in the least. Nolan has repeatedly said that The Dark Knight Rises will be his last Batman film. Other than producing the Superman reboot Man of Steel, which I’m fairly certain was just a favor he’s doing for David Goyer and his boys at Warner, Nolan is done with the DC universe.
When asked about his involvement in The Justice League, Nolan told Yahoo! Movies the following:
“No, none at all. We’re finished with all we’re doing with Batman. This is the end of our take on this character.
“Batman will outlive us all, and our interpretation was ours. 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. …
“I’ve got no plans to do anything more, and certainly, no involvement with any ‘Justice League’ project.”
A lot of filmmakers claim to have no interest in making sequels, but then do a 180 (I’m looking at you Michael Bay). I believe Nolan. I think he had a vision for Batman and was able to tell the story he wanted to tell and see it to it’s completion.
As for Warner rebooting Batman? It’s going to happen. Probably within the next few years.
