Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

^ I'd rather see a continuation of Batman with Gordon-Levitt. They already have their billion-dollar franchise with Nolan's series. They don't need to push for a Justice League movie hoping to copy what the Marvel movies did.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

Considering Man of Steel is most likely done filming, I call bullshit on the last part of that article. I seriously doubt Batman will be making an appearance in the film in any way.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

I'm not ready to buy into this.
It sounds like fanboy hopes typing away at the keyboard. As if by simply placing the idea into the consciousness of the 'net it will get to where it needs to be and become reality.
Some would say this has happened before of course but I'm not buying this at it's current rumor mill state.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

They'll do something because as it stands 'The Man of Steel' is the only DC movie they'll have to lead into this. Every Marvel movie was doing this from the beginning. I think they've got to do something similar to get attention to the film.

Avengers had scenes added at the last minute for the after credits so I don't see why they can't something quickly like that with MOS.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

I think the better question is do we really want the first time Superman and Batman appear on screen to NOT be Clark and Bruce? I'll have trouble accepting him even as Batman honestly if it's JLG. Firstly he's not Bruce and looks 19. Sure the suit will beef him up ala Keaton but he's still just a poor substitute for the real thing. It seems a poor attempt to make the Nolan saga part of something more than it was designed to be.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

I really hope this isn't true. I liked TDKR and its ending and I do think JGL has the charisma to lead a Batman movie. But really, I don't think it was intended to carry on John Blake's story - it was just a way of wrapping up Bruce Wayne's story while letting us know that The Batman would continue.

I also think that if they were to make a subsequent movie with Blake as Batman, it should continue in Nolan's relatively grounded universe - a move into a world with superpowers and aliens would be a very dramatic shift. Also, as Captain Craig says, I want a Superman/Batman link-up to be between Clark and Bruce, not Clark and someone else.

The JLA movie seems like a perfect opportunity to relaunch Batman in a different continuity than Nolan's. And despite Nolan's connection to MOS, I'm very sceptical of the claim that Blake will cameo in that movie - it seems at odds with Nolan's insistence that he wasn't working towards Supes and Bats sharing an onscreen universe.

Not necessarily. In the recent interview, Snyder said that producer Nolan insisted on a grounded and realistic approach to Superman, with some scientific justification for things (or so it sounded to me). And let's face it, there's plenty of outright impossibility in the Nolan Bat-films, from the inane microwave weapon in Begins to Batman's shattered-bullet forensics and the cable impossibly strong enough to flip over a truck in TDK to Bruce's magic recovery from a broken spine and the fusion overload that can be timed to the second in TDKR. Despite their pretensions of realism, they are fantasy movies. It's just that the impossibilities are presented with the trappings of realism, and in the context of an at least somewhat grounded and naturalistic character story, so we're willing to suspend disbelief.

True, but there have been plenty of instances where a creator has had one intention at the start but has then been persuaded by his employers to change those intentions when enough money was at stake. (E.g. Conan Doyle killing off Sherlock Holmes in "The Final Problem," which at the time he intended to be permanent and irrevocable.) Gordon-Leavitt's a big star now after TDKR and Looper. The studio's desire to capitalize on his growing fame may have outweighed Nolan's desire to keep the universes separate. It's not as if Nolan is the only decision-maker involved here. Ultimately it's Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment that he answers to.


That said, of course, a rumor is just a rumor, and "sources" who don't give their names shouldn't be trusted, at least until there's independent and official confirmation. I'm just saying it's possible.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

^Well, you'll note I was careful to say 'relatively grounded', as oppose to 'hyper-realistic' or anything like that. And yes, it's too early to know what approach MOS will take.

But yeah, it's a rumour and I always like to go with the William Goldman adage that in Hollywood, nobody knows anything. And the counter to that is that anything's possible.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

entertainment weekly

The news is surprising for a few reasons, not least because the Dark Knight trilogy seemed like a complete saga hermetically sealed in a non-superpowered reality. Then again, DC Comics does have a history of passing superhero mantles through various secret identities — even Bruce Wayne hasn’t always been Batman. And Christopher Nolan is producing Man of Steel. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt didn’t explicitly turn down the idea of starring in Justice League when asked by Hitfix over the summer. And and and…

Well, when contacted by EW, a representative for Joseph Gordon-Levitt declares the report entirely false

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

I heard about this earlier but I don't believe it. TDKR was the end of the story, and I'd rather not see them force a continuation just to use the popularity of Nolan's trilogy.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

But whether we like it or not it is a good way of having two characters already established by the time we get to Justice League instead of a bunch of baby faces.

Thing is, they haven't yet announced if Cavill will be the JLA Supes. It's almost as if they're waiting to see how MOS does before making that call. They've got to be planning on having him in a MOS2 at the very least, but look how that worked out for GL2...

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

This is why it would be better to do solo movies first, the least successful character's don't appear or get recast and the most popular lead the film. It has better chances of some character carrying the film due to their popularity in their Solo films. I think Cavill is contracted for 3 movies. I say WB should just gun it and go ahead with casting him as supes in Justice League or else we are back to square one with a new superman and testing the audience on him all over again.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

Eh, I'm glad there wasn't a JLA for Bats to call on in TDK, and I'm fine with Supes being the only true superhero in his stories also. Parallel Cavill Supes and JLA movies wouldn't bother me, though they could indeed be an awkward sell to the general public.

I hear Cavill signed on for three Superman movies. If the first one does do well then and they don't cast him in JLA movie we will have two different actors playing the same charcacter and that seems rather pointless.
