Let the Justice League rumor madness continue again? Genre fans will likely remember Warner Bros. Pictures' plans to bring the superheroes together on the silver screen a few years back, when there were casting rumors being circulated in the media on a daily basis. One major issue which helped stall those plans was Christopher Nolan's trilogy centered around Batman and what his reality-based vision would mean for the band of superheroes as a whole.
Now, as we prepare to see Nolan's trilogy vision wrapped up in The Dark Knight Rises in the summer of 2012, it seems that Warner Bros. Pictures chief Jeff Robinov is looking for a Justice League film as a way to possibly reinvent the Batman character once again. The Los Angeles Times sat down with the WB president, who confirmed that there were scripts being written for Justice League as well as feature films still being developed for Flash and Wonder Woman.
“We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman…Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”
Robinov doesn't seem concerned that the new "Wonder Woman" TV show may be an issue with a feature film of the Amazonian princess by saying “Wonder Woman could be a film as well, the same way that ‘Superman Returns’ came out while ‘Smallville’ was on."
