Christopher Nolan Says No to 'Justice League of America'!

We know that director Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises is his final Batman adventure, wrapping up the blockbuster trilogy. The filmmaker was recently asked if he would be involved in the DC Comics superhero ensemble Justice League of America, which brings together iconic heroes such as Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and many more.

Sadly, the filmmaker will not be involved in any capacity on Justice League of America. Here's what he had to say.

"No, none at all. We're finished with all we're doing with Batman. This is the end of our take on this character."


The director added that rumors of his involvement may have started since he is producing another Warner Bros. superhero adventure, Man of Steel. He also said he has no plans to participate in any further Batman movies Warner Bros. may produce in the future.

"Batman will outlive us all, and our interpretation was ours. Obviously, we consider it definitive and kind of finished. The great thing about Batman is he lives on for future generations to reinterpret, and obviously, Warners will have to decide in the future what they're going to do with him. We've had our say on the character. I've got no plans to do anything more, and certainly, no involvement with any Justice League project."


We reported last month that Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall is penning Justice League of America, although no director has been attached yet.

Justice League comes to theaters in 2018 and stars Gal Gadot.

    Classy guy. He knows it is time to move on and do other things instead of milking hundreds of millions he could easily make by staying on.

    and I really think DC needs to plan this JL movie very carefully. if done wrong it could seem like a "cash in on the avengers hype" kinda movie. I think they should flesh out all the involved characters first like Marvel did. Sh*t, Batmans the only sucessful DC franchise at the moment. I have huge expectations for Superman with Zach Snyder directing...but besides that DC hasn't done any with The Flash, Wonder Woman, The Martian Manhunter, Hawkman...or anything!! They're really slacking...and it amazes me that they're even thinking of JLA right now. Get your sh*t together DC! Im rooting for you

    Good for Chris...now he can move onto other great movies. I love the batman flicks, but much more excited to see what Nolan will do in other non-comic related movies.

    @writer220 I don't think he's a fool.He's already given us a great trilogy(according 2 early reviews).I say let him move on,hes stated plenty that he likes to work on 1 film at a time(which I completely respect).At that rate we're not getting no JL movie anytime soon.& after TDKR Nolan's name will just continue 2 sell no matter what project he's working on.So I fail 2 see the foolishness in this. ;-) In other words Batman established Nolan as big name director & that is kick ass!!

    shooting himself in the foot isn't a good thing, he's a fool to let it go.

    It doesn't bother me. I'd actually prefer Nolan move on and do something besides cbm's from now on.

    Besides Batman, I'm pretty sure Nolan wants to stay clear from any comic book characters...

    get a new director to direct a film version of batman to tie in to justice league, i'd think Timothy Olyphant would be great as batman/bruce wayne

    @the-movieghost I think Tim Burton's Batman was great to. I think Nolan's take is more realistic, so make it a bit more better. Not including the kiddie movies made after Burton's two Batmans, but I think those two alone can not be dismissed.

    A few months ago, Nolan and WB said he was going to produce the next group of Batman films. I wonder if that's still on the table?

    As far as I'm concerned, Nolan's Batman Trilogy are the ONLY Batman Films worth talking about.
