The rebooted version of Batman could make an appearance in the forthcoming Justice League movie, according to Cinema Blend. Following the release of director Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, fans of the character have been wondering how Warner Bros. will handle the further adventures of the superhero. Since Nolan claims he’s done with the series, it’s anybody’s guess which direction the franchise is headed.
However, rumors are starting to circulate that a rebooted version of the Caped Crusader will be featured in the Justice League movie should the project ever get off the ground. Batman-On-Film reports that whoever portrays the character in the production will more than likely be featured in the spin-off flick that will follow shortly thereafter. Who that individual will be remains to be seen. Of course, all of this Justice League talk amounts to nothing more than unchecked internet speculation, so be sure to take all of this information with a grain of salt.
As for now, it’s unclear who will handling directing duties on the feature. Although it seemed that actor-director Ben Affleck was on-board at one point, he quickly shot down those rumors during a recent interview. Immediately following Affleck’s proclamation, reports surfaced that Matrix masterminds the Wachowskis were being considered for the project.
During a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel, The Dark Knight Rises co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt stated that he had no idea where the franchise was headed or if he would even be a part of it. Since Nolan views his films as a trilogy, there’s a very strong possbility that the studio will ultimately take the series in a completely different direction.
Right now, all Warner Bros. has is a script by Gangster Squad scribe Will Beall. However, producers would love nothing more than to have the film in theaters by 2015.
