The DC Chapter Closed for The Nolans


During a press junket for the new sci-fi drama Interstellar, screenwriter Jonathan Nolan told Coming Soon that while his brother Christopher Nolan did the story and produced Man of Steel, they’re not involved in any of the ten upcoming WB/DC projects slated for release starting in 2016.

“I love those guys [at WB/DC Entertainment] and my brother was involved in Man of Steel with Zack [Snyder] and David [Goyer]. [But] I kind of feel like that chapter for us is closed.”

That said, he didn’t rule out the idea of an eventual return to the DC Universe.

“To be continued somewhere farther down the line?” he suggested. “Maybe.”

Well, that’s the least we’d expect. After all, the success of their Batman trilogy helped drive Warner Bros. to produce a new slate of DC superhero pics through 2020.

Or it’s about time they move on and let other guys deal with DC? Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of Nolan, but his particular brand of realism doesn’t really work for movies starring magical Amazonian princesses and that sort of stuff. Maybe DC fans could have movies faithful to comics from now on.

Currently, Snyder is the shepherd of the DC Cinematic Universe . He’s directing a follow-up to Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and is locked to direct Justice League that will span two films. David Ayer is directing Suicide Squad, while studio has not yet named directors for the likes of The Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, a new Green Lantern, and more.
