There have been a lot of rumors surrounding the future of Batman on film and a possible Justice League movie. Now we have some answers straight from the source. Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, spoke to EW recently about Man of Steel and the future of DC Comics movies. Unfortunately Robinov confirmed last week’s report… Christopher Nolan will not produce Justice League.
However, Robinov was unequivocal when asked if the rumor is true that Nolan will produce a Justice League movie, and bring Christian Bale back with him: “No, no it’s not.” (Nolan’s reps, who have previously declined to comment on that rumor, also confirmed Robinov’s statement and told EW that he definitely wasn’t involved with Justice League. Nolan is currently busy prepping his sci-fi film Interstellar.)
EW goes on to speculate that Warner Bros. will reboot the Batman franchise and tie those movies into their Justice League project, rather than trying to fit Christopher Nolan’s Batman into their story. That makes a lot more sense now, especially with Nolan distancing himself from Justice League. I have to admit, I was excited when I heard that Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale were in talks to return but it looks like Warner Bros. wasn’t able to get the deal signed.
