The latest bombshell Justice League movie rumor to hit the internet from El Mayimbe of Latino Review concerns the possibility that Christian Bale might reprise his role as Batman for a team-up with Henry Cavill‘s Man of Steel.
The pieces of this puzzle begin and end with Christopher Nolan. El Mayimbe is reporting that Nolan has been given the reins of everything DC over at Warner Bros. and everything to do with DC comic characters now goes through him, making him the architect of the Warner Bros. DC Comics universe.
I can’t think of anyone more qualified to take over the herculean task that isn’t already tied up with a number of other franchises. Joss Whedon has Marvel, J.J. Abrams has Star Wars and Star Trek, who else has the talent and proven track record to match those two nerdy juggernauts? If you can name one put it in the comments section below because I couldn’t think of anyone that would be a serious second to Nolan. I’d love to see a World’s Finest and a decent Wonder Woman movie before a complete Justice League roster movie.
Check out the video below where El Mayimbe lays out his case to support his beliefs in this round of Justice League rumors.
El Mayimbe also included some thoughts not in the video:
Closing Thoughts that I didn’t include in video:
- If you honestly think that Warners, especially with what they’re up against, aren’t going to move Heaven and Earth to try to make what I mentioned above happen, then you’re insane. They almost have no other choice.
- David Goyer I couldn’t confirm his participation at press time, and it was holding up publishing the scoop. Hence, unconfirmed but my gut tells me most likely true. He is an important part of the equation and works quite well with this team. At the very least, he will most likely come up with a story. He has some other projects as a director he is trying to launch off the ground but like Michael Corleone once said, “Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in
- World’s Finest Again, unconfirmed. But certainly within the realm of possibility. Could we instead get just a team up between these two and then graduate to a Justice League movie? Anything is possible folks.
- Debunkers Our track record with DC is impeccable. We broke Routh/Superman, Ledger/The Joker, the opening of The Dark Knight, etc., just to name a few. Remember, when we first broke that Goyer & Nolan were involved with Man Of Steel and Thomas Tull made a call over here to debunk us? So, um, how did that end up turning out? False? 🙂
What do you think? Will we be getting some official announcements once the ink has dried on Nolan’s contract? The whole thing makes a lot of sense and I’m sure we’ll find out one way or another. I just hope they don’t rush through and screw up what could be an epic team up.
