Christopher Nolan turned down producing 'Justice League'
After directing the "Dark Knight" trilogy, producing "Man of Steel," and exec producing the upcoming "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice," even Christopher Nolan has apparently grown tired of the superhero genre.
However, he's not above the idea of eventually returning to the form one day. "I think I had a great experience with the superhero genre and got to explore a lot of things," Nolan told Time Out, "but it was a good decade of my life and I find it hard to imagine returning to it. But never say never."
Despite being an integral part of "Man of Steel," Nolan won't be involved with Warner Bros.' planned "Justice League" films and spin-offs, or any Batman reboots.
According to a Wall Street Journal report, the reason why Warner Bros. took its time announcing its bulging DC superhero slate was because the studio was trying to get Nolan to produce both "Justice League" films and a potential "Batman" reboot, but he ultimately declined the offer (which must have been very tempting from a financial point of view).
Will DC's heroes fly just as high without Nolan's input?
Meanwhile, his non-superhero movie "Interstellar" opens next week.
"Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" opens March 25, 2016.
