Christopher Nolan talks Man of Steel and the radical ending to The Dark
Knight Rises. Now that Nolan is done with Batman, many are wondering what
superhero properties, more specifically what DC superhero properties are in
the filmmaker's future. Well the guys over at IndieWire's The Playlist were
lucky enough to score some one on one time with the master himself and ask
him just that.
First up in his near future is executive producing Zack Snyder's superman
reboot, and while it does seem to resemble the grounded, realistic tone
from Nolan's batman series...Nolan says Man of Steel won't bare as much
similarity to his batman franchise as his fans may think. Quote "Superman
is a completely different character than Batman. So you can't...in anyway use
the same template." Nolan goes on to suggest the scale and scope of Man of
Steel is larger than anything we saw with his Bruce Wayne. Quote "Superman
is the biggest comic book character of them all and he needs the biggest
possible movie version...which is what Zack's doing."
Nolan also took a moment to acknowledge the backlash surrounding the ending
of the dark knight rises. Some fans found the ending of Nolan's trilogy
uncharacteristic of the Batman we've come to know from the comics, and
while Nolan agrees it may have seemed radical to some it was quote "an
appropriate ending for the story we set out to tell."
So what about producing a Justice League movie? When The Playlist compared
him to Joss Whedon and asked if he would take on a similar role like the
Avenger's writer-director did, and become the godfather of future film
collaborations between DC Comics and Warner Brothers...nolan giggled. Its
hard to tell if Nolan's done with the superhero genre as a whole...as he
danced around the question by saying quote I'm producing superman now and
I'm enjoying time off and taking a break. Well as far as we can tell that's
not an outright NO. Then again, Nolan may end up shifting his gaze to a
bond movie...as he's expressed interested in that franchise for quite some
Well if you're already missing Nolan's bat-verse, you can pick up a copy of
The Dark Knight Rises and the entire trilogy on blue ray...in stores now. So
do you see Nolan becoming the Joss Whedon of DC..or do you also find that
comparison laughable? And which superhero properties would be perfect for
Nolan's next project? Sound off in the comments below and keep it locked
