Christopher Nolanhas become the go to guy for comic book movies and after the success of his masterpieceThe Dark Knight,he was asked by Warner Bros to work his magic on their troubled Supermanfranchise. David S. Goyeris currently penning the script for the new Man of Steel with Nolan serving as producer. When he recently spoke to Empire Magazineabout his upcoming projects he discussed the reboot as well as his next (and final) Batman film, including the uncertain future of The Joker…
It may sound strange but Nolan explained that a conversation about Batman is what kick-started his involvement with Superman.
While Goyer’s busy doing that, Jonah Nolan is working on the top secret script for Batman 3. The director refused to give any major plot details about the film but he did confirm that The Joker would not return. He stated,“No, I just don’t feel comfortable about it.” Good call! They need to wait another 20 years before someone tackles that role again.
Out of his entire interview the one thing that really stuck out was his views on the world of DC Comics versus Marvel. He discussed the current state of Marvel’s crossover films and whether or not we might see Batman and Superman go toe to toe in the future.
Even though we’ve all been wondering about a possible Justice Leaguemovie it will be a hard sell without the two main members (Batman and Superman). It doesn’t seem like the world he’s created with the characters would mesh well with the others. Maybe the Green Lantern can be the new JLA anchor instead?
