The Dark Knight Reboot


How will Warner Brothers get Batman into a future Justice League movie with the current Nolan-verse movies having set its own mythology for the Bat? By rebooting Batman, of course. The LA Times has an article where they talk with Warner Brothers exec Jeff Robinov on his plans to harness the DC Comics characters to be their lifeblood in the next few years. The ultimate goal is an Avengers-style Justice League movie, and following The Dark Knight Rises they’re going to need to reboot Batman to fit in with that:

“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.”

He also mentions that movies for both The Flash and Wonder Woman are being planned, although it looks as if those will come after the Justice League movie.
