Christopher Nolan Says No to ‘Justice League of America’!

Christopher Nolan will not be involved in the superhero ensemble Justice League of America We know that director Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises is his final Batman adventure, wrapping up the blockbuster trilogy. The filmmaker was recently asked if he would be involved in the DC Comics superhero ensemble Justice League of America, which brings together iconic heroes such as Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and many more.

Sadly, the filmmaker will not be involved in any capacity on Justice League of America. Here's what he had to say.

"No, none at all. We're finished with all we're doing with Batman. This is the end of our take on this character."

The director added that rumors of his involvement may have started since he is producing another Warner Bros. superhero adventure, Man of Steel. He also said he has no plans to participate in any further Batman movies Warner Bros. may produce in the future.

"Batman will outlive us all, and our interpretation was ours. Obviously, we consider it definitive and kind of finished. The great thing about Batman is he lives on for future generations to reinterpret, and obviously, Warners will have to decide in the future what they're going to do with him. We've had our say on the character. I've got no plans to do anything more, and certainly, no involvement with any Justice League project."

We reported last month that Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall is penning Justice League of America, although no director has been attached yet.

Justice League Part 1 comes to theaters November 11th, 2017.

    All I know is that I am glad Nolan will not be involved in any capacity with a Justice League movie. He is a brilliant director, visionary and innovator but he is not meant for the world of comics. The entire point of the comic book world is to be unrealistic, its a fantasy world. He cant and never will be able to have the vision or direction to make a comic movie that stays true to the core values of a comic book hero, we have seen through marvel that this is possible but Nolan is not the man. Personally I feel like his last three films were awesome action movies, but aside from some familiar names and a certain pointy eared costume they were not like any batman I have come to know. Bruce Wayne in the movies was completely reliant upon Fox for all his tech gear whereas comic book Wayne made the stuff himself. Movie Wayne was very apparent in his self pittying both in the first film and the third film, BRUCE WAYNE DOES NOT SIT IN HIS MANSION LIMPING AROUND FEELING SORRY FOR HIMSELF!!!! So to reiterate Nolan made a great action trilogy but if anything set Batman (at least in a true DC universe "Justice League" capacity) back horribly. The new reboot is going to be compared to Nolans work which in my opinion is not representative of the true Batman (u know, the one we deserve but not the one we need because we have Nolans cry baby one). So to end my rant, Batman is gonna have a tough time succeeding in any film that stays true to his roots from now on just like all those films from the 90's (imagine if those had come out after BB or DKR, lol would have been a hangin. Batman goodluck, long live Superman!!

          WHY? to make a league series you must intorduce us to Flash, Wonder Women, Though NOlans name is attached to Supes it isnt his own foray into the verse and though hes producing it does not give credit that his series is trying to mold everything else together----- the league must be instigated!

              I have a feeling that Zack Snyder will be directing Justice League of America. I think he would be the right person to direct it.

                  maybe hes tired of big budgets. I bet he does something smaller next.

                    @Gv-Nshz Zack Synder could probably direct a Justice League of America movie.

                            DC needs to get their sh*t together. Marvel is kicking their asses with all the films they're doing.

                                  @thedude-abides And it doesn't hurt that I've been on MW longer, and my tastes tend to run similar to most round these parts. Whereas you are the devil's advocate most of the time, consciously or not. I'm sure that plays into it. But really, who cares? You've carved out your own niche. Wear that vitriol like armor.
