Jonathan Nolan Is Excited For The Justice League Movie and Batman Reboot


3559 Last we heard from Jonathan Nolan, brother to Christopher and co-writer on The Dark Knight Rises, he had not ruled out a return to the DC Comics movie universe.

Now, the Oscar award winning writer comments on the upcoming Justice League movie as well as the Batman reboot.

No hints are given as to his involvement, but nonetheless, Jonathan Nolan is excited for what is coming next.

"I’m incredibly excited," Nolan tells EmpireOnline about the new Justice League and Batman. "I was a big Batman fan when I was a kid. In fact he was the only comic-book character I really liked. I went through a brief spell where I was reading Captain Britain, because I was an English kid living in the States, and Wolverine for 30 seconds, Spider-Man too, but really Batman was the one." Nolan continues, "And I love that there are different versions of the character. I love that in the context of The Justice League, he’s kind of the black sheep of that family."

Jonathan also said he's a huge fan of The Avengers director Joss Whedon.

"To me Joss Whedon is a god, I’m just a huge fan of his work, I love his work on TV. And I thought The Avengers was just an incredible achievement," he said.

Regarding the Justice League movie, all that is known is a script has been completed by Will Beall, with lots of rumors going around.

It's rumored that the villain will be Darkseid, with a plot based on a trio of Justice League of America comic books.

Henry Cavill is also rumored to reprise his Man of Steel Superman for the Justice League movie with a new Batman reboot in 2016 to follow.

As the Justice League movie is due to be released in 2015, Warner Bros. should be announcing a director soon, possibly by next month at the latest.
