Rumors are running rampant as the summer release of Warner Bros. Man of Steel draws near. Now? Latino Review come through with even more whispers from the studio in Burbank. Apparently man behind the last three Batman films is joining the Justice League. Oh and he’s not alone.
In case you didn’t watch LR’s video coverage above, where’s what was said. Christopher Nolan, the director of The Dark Knight Rises(and the two previous Batman movies), will be “Godfather” to the troubled Justice League movie for Warners. Yeah, that’s a big freaking deal. With Nolan’s name comes respect. And more recently, with Nolan’s name, like James Cameron, comes tons of box office money. If WB has finally gotten Nolan to oversee its super superhero movie then I’m sure we’ll be seeing some steady progress soon enough.
But wait, there’s more! Zach Snyder, director of the upcoming Man of Steel, is also rumored to carry the torch for the League. According to LR’s sources, Snyder will be in the same capacity as Nolan with very early talks of even directing the film. Snyder has already directed Watchmen and 300, so no one would be surprised if he followed a Superman movie with a Justice League film. No one.
Did I mention that they name drop Christian Bale returning to the role of Batman? Did I mention that they also mention writer David Goyer doing the same for Justice League?
Did I mention that while this is exciting, and we might finally see a Green Lantern on the big screen again, that you should take this with a grain of salt? Well, please do.
