Ever since Nolan gave us his Batman films DC has pretty much become obsessed with him. They want him to “god-father” the new Superman, he’s singed on the direct the new Batman, and now it seems he may be in talks to direct the Justice League film after Batman 3 and the new Superman. Also, that his brother, Jonah Nolan, will be directing the Superman reboot.
Thanks to ComingSoon.net:
“Earlier this week, it was reported that David Goyer will be writing the new Superman movie, The Man of Steel. What we didn’t catch then is that Jonah Nolan, who together with Goyer is writing the script for Christopher Nolan’s next Batman movie, is also on board to co-write the Superman film. Of course, this follows the news from earlier this month that Chris Nolan will play a “godfather” role in getting The Man of Steel going.”
“Which brings us to the really interesting parts. IESB is saying that Chris Nolan is mentoring the movie because his brother Jonah Nolan may make his directorial debut on The Man of Steel.”
I really don’t think Nolan is the “God” that people make him out to be. The only thing that Nolan has ever done for me is to revive the Batman franchise, and give us two quality films. That’s not to say I’m not grateful, because Batman is my favorite superhero. Anyway, there is no confirmation on this news yet, so take it with a grain of salt.
I don’t think they should move forward with The Justice League film until they get all the characters in their own film. It seems like thats what they are doing, but what about Wonder Woman? The Flash, Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern are moving forward, but there hasn’t been anything on Wonder Woman yet.
However, I am glad to see that his brother maybe making his directorial debut. But I wish it wasn’t on a film that I’m highly anticipating. Who knows, maybe new talent is what the franchise needs.
Do you want Nolan to direct Justice League? What about his brother directing the Superman reboot?
