Warner Bros. president Jeffrey Robinov hints that some of our questions about 'Justice League' will be answered soon.

Warner Bros. president Jeffrey Robinov shot down a report from last month that revealed Christopher Nolan is developing the superhero ensemble Justice League, with The Dark Knight Rises star Christian Bale returning as Batman. Here's what the studio executive had to say, when asked if the rumor was true.

"No, no it's not."

Christopher Nolan's representative also confirmed Jeffrey Robinov's statement, revealing that he is solely working on his new sci-fi thriller Interstellar.

The studio executive also teased a big announcement that is coming in the next few weeks, in regards to their DC Comics superhero movies.

"We'll announce something in the next several weeks that will hopefully position the DC characters and the movies we're going to be making."

When asked if Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy stands alone in this universe, the executive gave an intriguing response.

"They do. Or they did. Where we go in the future is a whole other conversation."

Earlier today, we reported that Man of Steel producer Charles Roven teased that his Superman movie will set the tone for movies such as Justice League and other DC Comics movies.

Justice League Part 1 comes to theaters November 11th, 2017 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

  1. Interstellar Movie

    I don't want Nolan involved in everything, he should pick and choose projects suited to his talents that are viable and of high quality.

    @undeadslayer4 I dont know. Trust me, I want Nolan involved in everything. He is a very desirable director/writer/producer right now. His trilogy is one of my favorite things ever and I love all of his work. I'm w/u. I want him involved. I just dont think he will be with all of the interviews he did where he said he was done...the fishy part is why did he help w/MOSteel!?

    @sean: There was earlier reports that there would be a different Batman if Bale doesn't come back, for some reason i would like to see Caviezel as the caped crusader.

    Im sad about this, but also still really excited to see what they do w/Man of Steel. I just think it's weird that Nolan had a hand in developing the story for MOS. Why would he do that if not still emotionally invested in these characters....? Well we'll see some more announcements soon. I really hope we see some cool sh*t in MOS which I believe we will! TDK trilogy will stand the test of time for a longg time so I guess I'm ok with that being seperate. Nolan is most likely putting alot of work int Interstellar.

    he made his mark on the comic genre in a huge way. I can understand why he is ready to move on.

    Why is it such a big deal if the Nolan's Batman fits in the same universe? It clearly didin't.

  23. TheDude1

    He made his Batman trilogy and helped make Man of Steel. This was the correct thing do to. He has so much talent that spending anymore time with just superhero movies would be a waste.

    While I can't predict what DC's "big announcement" may be, I can say that if those weeks turn into months, it will likely be "we have no idea where to go next."

    Aw man, i actually wanted him to do it cos Christian Bale said he would only play Batman if Nolan did Justice League.
