Next week sees Christopher Nolan's epic science-ficion flick, Interstellar, premiere and while doing some press is questioned about potentially doing more superhero movies.

Similar to what his brother Jonathan recently said, Christopher Nolan, director of The Dark Knight Trilogy, is not ruling out a return.

Via Timeout Chicago:

I think I had a great experience with the superhero genre and got to explore a lot of things, but it was a good decade of my life and I find it hard to imagine returning to it. But never say never.

Batman Vs. Superman producer Charles Roven also recently said Christopher Nolan is involved as a producer in more of a advisory role.

Nolan also comments on "spawning a monster" in regards to all the recent comic book movie announcements.

Ha! Yeah, I love working in that field and hopefully I've added something to it. I know to some extent we encouraged more of it. You don't want Hollywood to hit saturation point with those things. But then Zack Snyder is now doing his part by bringing Batman and Superman into one film [for 2016's Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice], so that limits the number!

But yes DC Comics have just announced an enormous number of movies. Well, you know, as long as that's the ride people want, the studios will continue to offer it. I don't see it as a limited genre. If I did, I never would have worked for almost ten years in that genre. I think like any genre, like the Western, it has limitless opportunities. It's just about the audience's appetite. What's very important is that the studios be open to making other sorts of films at the same time.

Interstellar hits November 7th.
