Speaking with HeyUGuys on the red carpet for "Sucker Punch" in the UK he said, "Like what Chris Nolan is doing and what I’m doing with Superman, what they’ll do with Justice League will be its own thing with its own Batman and own Superman. We’ll be over here with our movie and they’ll kinda get to do it twice which is kinda cool."
Pretty savvy move on WB's part, respecting the visions of their helmers while still finding a way to get more adventures of Superman, Batman and the rest of the Justice League team on screen. We suppose this now means there will be casting rumors for the next little while until this thing gets locked down (cue up everyone who ever tried out for both films) and if we had any worry, it might be an over-saturation of the crime fighters. At the very least, audiences will have very high standards for what follows both Nolan and Snyder's films.
As everyone knows by now, one of the great, almost-happened-but-didn't franchise movies was George Miller's "Justice League" which had among its cast Armie Hammer (as Batman), Adam Brody as The Flash, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, rapper Common as John Stewart/Green Lantern, and Australian supermodel Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. But just before it was set to begin filming the writer's strike arrived killing the planned polishes on the script and eventually wound up shuttering the film for good.
This is WB's second stab at the apple and comic fans will be scrutinizing every move. Christopher Nolan can't godfather everything at the studio, but hopefully they'll learn from his approach (smart, character driven scripts that also deliver the blockbuster bang people want). "Justice League" is planned to hit theaters sometime in 2013.
