Christopher Nolan won’t direct ‘Justice League’ film
And he’s really, really, done with Batman.
There has been speculation that Christopher Nolan might still continue on with the Batman franchise even after ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ releases if the money is right, but more recent rumors suggested that the director might actually take on the ‘Justice League’ movie that Warner Brothers have been planning. Well, sadly for fans Nolan put both those rumors to rest.
The director stated that he will not have any involvement with any further Batman movies or even the Justice League movie, even as a producer as Warner Brothers once suggested that he would. He tells EW:
“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.”
So that’s that. Though it would be a dream come true to see Nolan headline Justice League (which would give Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers’ a run for its money), it’s understandable that he would want to move on to bigger and better things. And if ‘Inception’ is any indication of that, then I say bring it on.
