The Justice League of America movie has seen quite a few ups and downs, from writers to even directors who have dropped out from the movie. Well, an interesting rumor states that Christopher Nolan, known for his epic The Dark Knight trilogy and other well known masterpieces such as Inception, may be the next one up to helm the movie.
The rumor states that it is a possibility that Nolan will co-host with Zack Snyder, who directed the upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel. The movie, of course, was originally supposed to release June 2015, which still leaves a bit of room to work with, however, with complications such as screenplay popping up every now and then, the project has been pushed back constantly. With this said, Nolan would be working from scratch, putting his movie-making directing magic at work and accomplishing something that many weren’t able to do for a while.
In addition, though Christian Bale said The Dark Knight Rises would’ve been his last Batman film, he did state that Nolan would make the ultimate call. This potentially opens up the possibility that Bale would reprise his role as Batman for the upcoming movie, which would eliminate the need to reboot the Batman movie franchise so soon after Nolan’s epic trilogy. Additionally, as Snyder has been working on a Superman reboot, the movie could serve as a character introduction movie to tie in with Justice League of America (something that has been rumored for a while now).
Nevertheless, Warner Bros. is desperately looking to make the Justice League of America movie as successful as The Avengers by retaining the core essence of the DC-based superheroes. Nolan has done quite well with his Batman trilogy, and Snyder’s Man of Steel is looking to follow suit. Nevertheless, there’s still the other superheroes, such as Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Flash, Aquaman, and more to consider, so only time will tell.
