Although he was apparently down to shepherd in the next big screen take on Batman following the close of his own saga with The Dark Knight Rises, as well as executively produce the long mooted Justice League movie, director Christopher Nolan revealed to Associated Press that as far as he’s concerned, his time with DC superheroes is over.
“I don’t intend to get involved with any future solo BatmanÂ films when distributor Warner Bros, which owns DC Comics, decides the time is right to launch a new take on the masked vigilante.
“BatmanÂ will outlive us all,” continues Nolan, “and our interpretation was ours. Obviously, we consider it definitive and kind of finished. The great thing about BatmanÂ 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.”
The Dark Knight Rises is in cinemas from 20 July 2012.
