In an interview this week, The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan discussed his work on DC’s properties.
Speaking to the LA Times, Nolan described how a meeting with David Goyer regarding the third Batman’s story hit a wall, which lead to Goyer outlining his personal ideas for the Superman franchise. “He basically told me, ‘I have this thought about how you would approach Superman.’ I immediately got it, loved it and thought: that is a way of approaching the story I’ve never seen before that makes it incredibly exciting.” Nolan will now oversee the 2012/2013 Man Of Steel project, which doesn’t have a director attached to it at the moment.
Arguably of even greater interest, however, were Nolan’s comments on the third, as yet unnamed Batman picture, currently being scripted by his brother Jonathan. “I’m very excited about the end of the film, the conclusion, and what we’ve done with the characters.”
Nolan was reserved on specifics, not commenting on whether he’ll be directing the third Batman movie or not. He’s currently working on Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, released over here on 14 July.
