Had Warner Brothers any designs on doing a pseudo-continuation of Nolan’s Dark Knight franchise, I’ll admit that (TKDR spoiler alert) I’d be 100% down if they hired Rian Johnson to direct a Joseph-Gordon Levitt variation that focuses on detective work (since the character has cop training, but is a little lacking in the ninja department).
Any deviation from that plan though and it becomes foolish to go with anything other than a clean narrative and aesthetic reboot of the Batman, and one that pleasedeargodjustskipthefuckingorigin. Considering Man Of Steel is about to gift Superman with a clean slate, and WB has had plans to get JLA up and running for some time, it only makes sense for them to clinch this opportunity to jump-start Batman in a JLA movie, or in a film of his own that could handle a shared universe.
According to THR, that’s all exactly what the Brothers Warner are thinking, which confirms the thoughts of Cosmic Book News, who also have some word on how Batman might get started again. This is where you need to break out your salt grains.
…regarding Batman we were told by a DC Entertainment insider that a new Batman movie is slated for some time around 2016 following the Justice League movie; that it will not be an origin story, but will feature a Batman who is entering his second year as a hero, with the title tentatively named “The Batman.”
