Nolan: No to Justice League film

Christopher Nolan said he won't be making a Justice League movie

Christopher Nolan has quashed speculation that he might be involved in a Justice League movie featuring Batman.

There had been rumours that the Batman director might return to the Dark Knight by producing a big-screen take on Justice League, DC Comics' Avengers-style ensemble whose key superheroes include the caped crusader, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.

But Chris said in an interview that his take on Batman wraps up with The Dark Knight Rises, his third and final film centered on the DC Comics superhero, which opens this month.

And he said that he had no Justice League plans.

"No, none at all," the filmmaker said. "We're finished with all we're doing with Batman. This is the end of our take on this character."

Chris also said he did not intend to get involved with any future solo Batman films when distributor Warner Bros., which owns DC Comics, decides the time is right to launch a new take on the masked vigilante.

"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," he said.

"I've got no plans to do anything more, and certainly, no involvement with any Justice League project."

The director resurrected the Dark Knight with 2005's Batman Begins and shattered box-office records with 2008's The Dark Knight, which won a posthumous Academy Award for Heath Ledger as the Joker.

Scorpio:

You prefer to work out problems in secret, with no interference from friends and family. It's not that you don't respect other people's opinions. You simply know intuition is your best guide. In the past, you followed conventional wisdom, only to regret your choice. Don't make this mistake now, when there is an important career matter before you. Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
