It shouldn't be that big of a surprise to us, but it sure is a disappointment - Christopher Nolan will not be helping in any capacity with a Justice League film. When asked in an Associated Press interview whether he had plans for the movie, his reply was simple.
"No, none at all," Nolan said. "We're finished with all we're doing with Batman. This is the end of our take on this character."
Easy enough, but it seems he's cutting off any hopes we might have had of him doing any other DC property all together.
He also said he [does] not intend to get involved with any future solo Batman films when distributor Warner Bros., which owns DC Comics, decides the time is right to launch a new take on the masked vigilante.
"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," Nolan said. "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."
There you have it, you may begin your period of mourning.
