It’s all but confirmed that Warner Bros. is looking to produce a Justice League movie after reintroducing Superman into the world in next summer’s Man of Steel. It’s been reported that Will Beall has been hired to pen the Justice League script, and Warner Bros. is already looking at potential directors for the project. So how does this all affect the future of Batman on the big screen? Batman-on-Film has heard some whispers…
Said reboot will come after the [Justice League] film, not before. Therefore, the new cinematic Batman will be introduced in the [Justice League] film as opposed to a solo film. This would, according to my industry “[Friend of Batman-on-Film]“, assure the new Batman film series will be part of a “DC Cinematic Universe.”
Batman-on-Film goes on to say that this rumor should be taken with a grain of salt, but it does pose an interesting scenario for Batman fans. Whoever is cast in the upcoming Justice League movie, which will probably be released in 2015, is likely to be the Batman we see on the big screen for years to come.
