Latino Review reports today that the future of any Justice League project could be over seen by the team of Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder, with Nolan as producer and Snyder directing.
This has always been dependent on how the upcoming Superman film, Man of Steel, does at the box office. If all goes to plan and it generates a significant amount of cash for Warner then a Justice League film could swiftly be put into production.
The site claim: “Christopher Nolan has completely taken over the DCU at Warner Bros, anything having to do with these super heroes, goes through him now.”
Warner would also be hoping to persuade Christian Bale to return to the Batman role with Henry Cavill playing Superman, the Justice League film would focus on the relationship between those two characters.
I would love for this to come true, and then to blow Joss Whedon and The Avengers right out of the water. However, with Nolan stating that he’d done all he could with The Dark Knight it would seem unlikely he would be open to any links back to Gotham.
We can only hope that this rumour builds some momentum behind it, and that Man of Steel does well enough at the box office.
Man Of Steel will open in the UK on 14 June 2013.
