Batman to be rebooted for Justice League film?

David Goyer has seemingly confirmed that Christian Bale would not play Batman in the proposed Justice League movie.

With Man of Steel expected to do big business, speculation is rife that this will lead to an ensemble film featuring Christian Bale reprising his role as The Dark Knight, but screenwriter told Hey U Guys that Bale’s version of Batman does not exist in the same continuity as the new Superman outing.

 

“It would be disingenuous to say Warner Bros doesn’t hope that this would be the starting point for a shared universe. And Zack has said that Bruce Wayne exists in this universe. It would be a different Bruce Wayne from Chris’ [Nolan] Dark Knight trilogy, and it would be disingenuous to say that Zack and I haven’t had various conversations on set, around ‘what if’ and ‘moving forward’.”

 

Goyer also confirmed that he has not yet signed on to write a script for Justice League script, insisting that he “definitely” has not formally agreed to any deals for the film, and also added that if the movie were to happen, it would be would “a blank slate” rather than adapting an existing screenplay.

 

“They’re hoping that the film does well, but god forbid it doesn’t, things will change. I don’t know how many different iterations of Justice League they’ve tried to mount over the last decade or so. But for one reason or another they haven’t happened. I think Warner Bros has seen – and Chris deserves the biggest credit for this – that we were able to revitalise Batman and put it into the first billion dollar superhero film. And they’re hoping that Superman will be revitalised as well.

“And if we can do Batman and Superman, then maybe we can move on to Wonder Woman, and The Flash, and characters like that.”

 

A sequel to Man of Steel is reportedly already in the works.
