Shortly after the climactic finale of Christpher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, the acclaimed director swore off doing any more films centered around Batman.
However, Warner Bros, desperate for financially viable franchises, revisited the series, looking at a new Batman reboot coming possibly as soon as 2016.
The news broke in due time with rumors of what would happen to the Justice League project, which Warner Bros is still in early stages of. Previously, Ben Affleck had been rumored to take control of the project, but he diffused those rumors entirely. The opening looks like it could be going towards Lana and Andy Wachowski, who directed Warner Bros epic Cloud Atlas, which is set for release this fall.
But in terms of who would possibly star in the Justice League, there’s been virtual silence. However, it was confirmed today by Batman On Film that the newest version of the Caped Crusader would be introduced in the movie. There’s no indication that the role would be held by Joseph Gordon Levitt, who assumed the role at the end of The Dark Knight Rises.
There has been no apparent indication that Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel will have anything to do with the Justice League either, or that Ryan Reynold’s previous role as The Green Lantern has a permanent place in the film either. It will be some time before any of these rumors become solidified, it seems.
