Christopher Nolan Talks ‘Superman,’ Won’t Talk ‘Justice League’

“The Dark Knight” director Christopher Nolan certainly has his hands full these days juggling both the blockbuster Batman movies and an upcoming reboot of the Superman franchise.

With the big-screen futures of DC’s best-known characters now under one creator’s purview, we had to ask the filmmaker how he’s approaching his new gig as the Man of Steel’s shepherd — and whether this brings us any closer to a “Justice League” team-up between the two characters.

“We’re producing the [Superman] film and David Goyer had a terrific take on the story,” Nolan told MTV News during this week’s ShoWest convention. “I’ve been working on the story with David, and he’s going to go off and write it, and we’ll see where it goes.”

However, Nolan was far less verbose when it came to the possibility of Superman and Batman appearing on-screen together in a potential “Justice League” movie — a possibility we discussed here on Splash Page back when Nolan’s involvement was initially rumored.

“I can’t really talk about other things,” smiled Nolan when asked if “Justice League” is any more likely now that he’s guiding the destinies of Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne.
