Warner Bros. President Says Christopher Nolan is Not Involved with Justice League

One of the juiciest rumors to come out in the past few months was that Christopher Nolan, the director of The Dark Knight trilogy, would be shepherding the Justice League movie at Warner Bros. We're sad to report that this was a case of 'too good to be true' as EW has confirmed with Warner Bros. President Jeff Robinov that this rumor is not true.

When asked if it was true that Nolan would be bringing the project to life with his former Batman Christian Bale, he left no room for interpretation and simply said "No, it's not."

Christopher Nolan's representatives also confirmed that Nolan was never involved with the project and is working solely on his upcoming film Interstellar.

We know you were really looking forward to this, but take heart that it would appear the film is still on track to eventually get made. Man of Steel producer Chris Roven says the upcoming Superman reboot will pave the way for future films.

"It's setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward, In that, Man of Steel is definitely a first step. Nolan's Dark Knight series was deliberately and smartly positioned as a stand-alone. The world the films lived in was very isolated, without any knowledge of other superheroes. What Zack and Chris have done with this film is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world."

Man of Steel hits theaters June 14 while Justice League is rumored to be targeting a summer 2015 release date.
