Christopher Nolan Doesn’t Rule Out Another Superhero Movie; Warner Bros. Pressed Him to Produce JUSTICE LEAGUE and a BATMAN Reboot

by     Posted 52 days ago


If Marvel Studios and Iron Man is responsible for influencing one half of the current superhero movie climate, then Christopher Nolan and Batman Begins can take credit for the other half.  How many times have you heard “gritty reboot” and Batman Begins name-checked when describing a potential new project or an updated take on an existing property?  Nolan brought a grounded and serious tone to the superhero genre with his Dark Knight trilogy, specifically The Dark Knight, and many imitators have surfaced in his wake.  Nolan closed out his Batman adaptation with The Dark Knight Rises, but many fans of the franchise would no doubt love to see Nolan put his spin on another superhero.

So what does Nolan think about returning to the superhero genre?  Well he’s not particularly crazy about it, but he won’t entirely rule it out either.  Hit the jump for more, including how Nolan figured into Warner Bros.’ delay in getting its DC Movie Universe off the ground.

Watch Christian Bale and Cillian Murphy Audition to Play Batman in THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY Blu-ray Extra

by     Posted 1 year, 88 days ago


In a little under two years, we will have a new Batman onscreen by way of Ben Affleck.  It’s a very short turnaround considering that Christopher Nolan just finished his Dark Knight Trilogy last year, but Warner Bros. clearly wants to keep the momentum it gained with Man of Steel, and bringing Batman back into the fold appears to be part of that plan.  Let’s not forget, though, that Nolan’s new vision for Batman with Batman Begins was a complete 180 from any Batman iteration—or superhero movie in general—that we had seen before, and the process of casting the caped crusader was the most important piece of the puzzle.

The new Blu-ray set The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition went on sale earlier this week, and one of the many new extras found on the set is a retrospective look at casting the Batman, featuring interviews with everyone from Nolan to Damon Lindelof.  A portion of that feature has made its way online, and after the jump you can watch Christian BaleCillian Murphy, and Eion Bailey (Band of Brothers) audition for the lead role and Nolan himself discuss the lengthy casting process.

MAN OF STEEL to Open Door for Other DC Characters; Christopher Nolan NOT Involved with JUSTICE LEAGUE

by     Posted 1 year, 255 days ago


Warner Bros. has a potential goldmine with the DC Comics license, but their attempts at moving forward on superhero projects have stalled.  Films featuring The Flash and Wonder Woman are stuck in development hell, and the recent script for Justice League had to be scrapped.  So it’s all going to fall on the broad shoulders of Superman.  In a recent interview, Warner Bros. president Jeff Robinov says that Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel is “setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward. In that, it’s definitely a first step.”

Christopher Nolan Talks about the Ending of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and More

by     Posted 2 years, 23 days ago


Now that The Dark Knight Rises has made its way through its theatrical run, Christopher Nolan has eased up on being so vague about the film, and has done a fascinating interview with Film Comment where he looks back on his history with the Batman franchise.  Moving through Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises, he talks about the influences of each film, his approach to the stories, how he envisioned Bruce Wayne’s behavior throughout the trilogy, and much more.  He also touches on the political elements of The Dark Knight Rises, its propulsive final hour, and the “open-ended” conclusion, which he doesn’t see as open-ended.

Hit the jump for more.  The Dark Knight Rises hits Blu-ray/DVD on December 4th.

THE HOBBIT Extended Edition Confirmed for 2013; Plus DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY Collector’s Edition Set for Q3 2013 Release

by     Posted 2 years, 78 days ago


Though it was already pretty much expected, we now have confirmation from Warner Bros. that an extended edition of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released on home video sometime during the fourth quarter of 2013.  The idea of extended editions for Jackson’s The Hobbit films is somewhat intriguing, though, given that the adaptation was initially expected to be two films in length before Jackson was granted permission to extend it to a full trilogy.
