Nolan Just Says No To Justice League Involvement
The Justice League, along with several other DC properties, have been rumored to be in the works…again. WB is supposedly hard at work on getting some of the DC characters fast tracked to the big screen leading up to a Justice League film. With Christopher Nolan’s success with Batman, many thought he would be heavily involved in the new line of DC films, especially the group effort that is Justice League. Well, Nolan is just saying no.
While doing a press junket for The Dark Knight Rises, Nolan put all that speculation to rest. He has said numerous times that he wouldn’t come back for another Batman movie after Rises, and it looks like he’s done with much of the superhero genre. On Justice League and more Batman:
I’ve got no plans to do anything more, and certainly, no involvement with any Justice League project.
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”
In March, WB President Jeff Robinov had said that Nolan and wife/producing partner Emma Thomas will produce a new Batman. That could have been premature talks or just a way to keep Nolan’s name on the Bat franchise, but it sounds like he is done with Batman for good and probably won’t be involved at all with Justice League. He is playing a godfather role on Superman, but that is more as a consultant. Do you think Nolan is done with superheroes?
