If it's crap ... We'll tell you
This month, after what seemed an eternity of waiting, Christopher Nolan's final foray into the world of Batman, 'The Dark Knight Rises,' hits theaters. It seems common knowledge at this point that Nolan will not be helming the next Bats movie for Warner Brothers, but what of this Justice League situation? It was reported early last month that things were still moving on the massive DC equivalent to 'The Avengers,' but then again the "progress" cited was that a writer was hired to write the script...a year ago. Hardly Earth-shattering news, but it did get the rumor mills buzzing about the prospect of Nolan coming back to direct 'JL.' It was merely a glimmer of hope, but one that got many people excited. Sorry to dash those pipe dreams guys, but the director himself confirmed that he would not be involved whatsoever. Here's what he said during a 'TDKR' junket...
"I've got no plans to do anything more, and certainly, no involvement with any Justice League project,"
Do filmmakers and actors always tell the truth during interviews and junkets? No. However, I find it remarkably hard to believe Nolan is just being coy. Frankly, I hadn't even considered the possibility of his directing 'Justice League,' and I'm not sure why anyone else did either. We are still years away from 'Justice League,' with several characters still in need of their own solo outing before it can become a reality. Nolan is going to be long departed from the Batman franchise before this project really gets in motion so we'll probably have had a reboot at the hands of someone else before that date. So why would they then bring Nolan back to direct a team that included Batman?
Ok, so now that Nolan has made it official that he's out, who would you pick as 'The Justice League' director?
