The popular director of Inception and The Prestige is prepping for the release of his third Batman film Dark Knight Rises and has offered a few statements clarifying his association with future WB superhero properties.
The Dark Knight Rises, starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy, will hit theaters on July 20th. Director Christopher Nolan was recently asked to detail his involvement with other projects currently in development at Warner Bros, particularly rumors that he would work on their planned Justice League film which may include the same Batman mythology from his trilogy:
"No, [no plans] at all. We're finished with all we're doing with Batman. This is the end of our take on this character. 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... We've had our say on the character."
Nolan played an integral role in getting the upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel greenlit for director Zack Snyder, but regardless how often his name has been linked to other superhero films he steadfastly does not wish to be involved:
"I've got no plans to do anything more, and certainly, no involvement with any 'Justice League' project."
