Christopher Nolan won't be involved in Justice League Film - Sort of
Even after Interviews with Christian Bale, Warner Bros and others of the Batman world. The Rumor that Director Christopher Nolan will be directing -or at least be a big part- of the now probable Justice League movie have still been floating around.
Entertainment Weekly talked to Bale about whether or not he was going to be a part of the Next Batman Movie and he was adamant that he had not been involved in any talks about the movie. It seems that if Nolan was to direct he would almost certainly make every effort to keep Bale as Bruce Wayne.
Nolan himself denies that he will be a part of Justice League, at least as the Director. That honor seems to have been given to Zack Snyder. But that doesn't mean Nolan won't have any part of the movie right?
He was definitely a very large part of the new Superman Movie "Man of Steel" and it does seem to fit that even if he's not directing his influence could still play into the film. But pretty much anyone asked says Nolan is not going to play any part of that movie. Here's the thing that doesn't pass the sniff test.
When Jeff Robinov, the president of Warner Bros Picture Group was asked about Nolan directing he said Nolan is definitely not directing Justice League but there was some speculation by others that wasn't denied that he might direct a justice league movie. Which in all honesty is just too much confusion. The other thing Robinov did say was in regards to the question on whether the Dark Knight films would stand completely on their own.
His reply was “They do. Or they did,” He changed his words in mid sentence and finished with. “Where we go in the future is a whole other conversation.”
That reference could have been the easter eggs in "Man of Steel" that show a presence of Batman or possibly forshadowing of another set of Batman movies that are more in line with coexistence of multiple heroes on the planet.
So it does seem more and more likely that Christopher Nolan is truly out, at least for now but a Batman Superman combined movie does seem to be on the horizon. Only time will provide us with these answers so make sure you check back often, as we will keep everyone updated as soon as we get the info.
