We're back at the to JL or not to JL argument.

I was thinking about it recently. I just can't see them making it work with what they're establishing already. Think if you were to add a plethora of superheroes to the world in which the Nolan films take place. It just takes away too much from the realistic world-building they've put in place. The Nolan Batman films essentially establish that apart from the fictitious city its set in, this is essentially 'our' world with our rules put in place.

It's the same for what they appear to be doing with Superman. They're making Superman the first super-powered being on Earth and going into all of what that could mean. Now that's not to say you can't have other superheroes show up and them all team up or whatever and wage war. But then suddenly what have you done to the backdrop of these films now. It's not 'our' world with Superman anymore. It's just become too far removed.
