Christopher Nolan to Produce Batman Reboot After The Dark Knight Rises
Yesterday, Warner Bros. president Jeff Robinov hinted that a Justice League of America movie is back in the works for a 2013 release date. Today, Jeff Robinov not only confirmed that the Justice League of America script is in development, but also revealed that the Batman franchise will be rebooted after The Dark Knight Rises is released next year.
Director Christopher Nolan will remain on board as a producer, although he will not be directing the reboot. Here's what Jeff Robinov had to say.
"We have the third Batman, but then we'll have to reinvent Batman... Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is."
With the Justice League of America project, Jeff Robinov would only say that the script is being developed, although he would not reveal who is currently writing the superhero ensemble. He also mentioned that superhero projects such as The Flash and Wonder Woman, which are currently being written, could serve as spin-offs after the Justice League of America.
"Wonder Woman could be a film as well, the same way that Superman Returns came out while Smallville was on."
