For many of us, we have been indulged and graced with the realistic version of Batman. We have been given high tech, innovative version of the Batmobile that roars to life and crushes cars under it’s monster wheels. We have been given chaos and philosophy that was beautifully written. However, based on the press conference from yesterday…Christopher Nolan stated that he will not be involved with or in the Justice League movie. Here’s his statement:

“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. … I’ve got no plans to do anything more, and certainly, no involvement with any ‘Justice League’ project.”

It appears that Warner Bros. has asked him to do the movie. They even asked him to do the reboot Batman. He says, “No.” I can respect that ultimately, but I do not like it. It means that some other director and writer will take charge, and will either destroy our wonderful Batman or bring Batman to the same level as Nolan’s interpretation. If we can actually find or make a clone of Nolan that would help a little. However, we have not perfected the art of cloning so no. Nolan had a good run, he has other projects to do. He has a beautiful mind that needs to be shared with the world…

    I’d be happy if Warners let Batman rest for a while after the amazing Nolan trilogy, give us time for it to sink in, for us to talk about it, discuss it, be in the moment.

    If anything new on Batman is released by a new director/writer and its too soon it would ultimately be compared to Nolan’s Batman … kind of like The Amazing Spiderman, which I thought was a good movie, but a bit too familar, and obviously only released because Sony had to retain the rights.

    Last thing we’d want to see is another Batman & Robin, so I say let’s enjoy The Dark Knight trilogy, the new movie hasn’t even released yet, let’s delve into Nolan’s Batman trilogy and world before we start to think about something new!
