Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, has taken part in a new interview and revealed news that the studios upcoming DC movies will be announced “in the next several weeks”. Robinov confirmed that Christopher Nolan will NOT produce a Justice League movie, however he said this summer’s Man of Steel is “setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward.”
Will Man of Steel include references to other DC heroes headed to the big screen, as Marvel did with its pre-Avengers series of flicks?
“I think you’ll see that, going forward, anything can live in this world,” he said. “[Nolan’s] Batman was deliberately and smartly positioned as a stand-alone. The world they lived in was very isolated without any knowledge of any other superheroes. What Zack and Chris have done with this film is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world.”
We may not have to wait very long for more news. “We’ll announce something in the next several weeks that will hopefully position the DC characters and the movies we’re going to be making,” Robinov said.
Recent development at Warner Bros. have suggested that a Justice League movie would follow Man of Steel, and then characters such as Wonder Woman and The Flash may get solo movies afterwards. Gangster Squad writer Will Beall was hired to write the latest draft of the script, but apparently his screenplay was scrapped leading to speculation Christopher Nolan was taking over to guide the ship. That obviously isn’t happening, so fans will be curious to see what the studio has planned for their upcoming DC slate.
