There is all sorts of speculation going around about Warner Brothers planned DC comics Justice League movie. However, the latest news was that Will Beall’s (Gangster Squad) script had been thrown out, and plans for the Justice League movie would only move forward based on the success of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.
Today, Latino Review (who usually get these things right!) are reporting some mega news on the development of the Justice League movie. They are saying that Christopher Nolan, director of the phenomenal Dark Knight trilogy, is in talks to return to Warners for Justice League. Apparently this comes off the back of Beall’s scrip being thrown out.
It is thought that Nolan may return as producer, however he did say last year that his role in producing Man of Steel would be his last venture into DC’s world. He also said that after The Dark Knight Rises, he was “done with Batman”. However, the reports are saying that he may return as producer of Justice League. The report also claims that Nolan would be taking on a Joss Whedon type role at Warners and becoming the head of all things DC:
“Christopher Nolan has completely taken over the DCU at Warner Bros,” claims the Latino Review. “Anything having to do with these super heroes, goes through him now.”
It is also thought that Zack Snyder is in the running to direct Justice League, and also Christian Bale is in demand to return as Batman: Latino Review’s sources tell them that Nolan is shaping Justice League as a team-up between Man of Steel star Henry Cavill and Christian Bale, reprising his role as Batman. As Latino Review’s El Mayimbe puts it, Superman will arrive and find Bruce Wayne somewhere in his peaceful retirement, tell him he’s putting a team together, and get all the new action started.
Now, this is very exciting news indeed, but for now is simply just a rumour. However, Latino Review’s track record is sound, and often they get scoops early and get them right. If Nolan is returning to DC and Warner, and is planning to take on a Joss Whedon God-like role, then we are seriously in for a treat if and when Justice League finally gets made.
