stupid fanboys need to realize that they need to speak for themselves when they say stuff like that. they don't speak for the community or the public consensus .

WB's and/or Goyer haven't confirmed it though, so its still unconfirmed.

Like I've said before they could really build some bridges with the fans if they were honest about this stuff.

If you told me 2 years ago that the nolans were going to be involved in the next superman movie, I would never have believed you.

This is pretty awesome lol.

A trade break is pretty much the same as a studio confirmation. In this case, the studio didn't want the news to get out this early. If it wasn't true, WB wouldn't have been insisting on finding out who Latino Review's sources are.

DREW 12 hours ago in reply to ojex

Jonah Nolan did a foreward to a dc graphic novel superman /Batman the search for kryptonite

"They're strange drinking pals, these two. Neither of them drinks, first off: Superman because he's too decent, and Batman because, welll ---- would a sledgehammer drink? Other than that, they have almost nothing in common. One of them is a god: the other is just a seriously angry mortal. One of them pretends to be a farm boy; the other pretends to be a wealthy bachelor. They're born heroes, but one of them dresses the part and the other dresses, to be honest, like a villian.

Full disclosure: I'm a little biased. I get a paycheck working for one of these guys, and it's not the Boy Scout. (I'm going to take Michael Green at his word with that Lance, the bottle-blond Batman, is no dig at any film set I've ever worked on.)

My preference aside, it's good to see these guys palling around together. Frankly, if they weren't friends with each other, I'm not sure either of them would have friends. Besides, they complement each other nicely, the idealist and the pragmatist -- the national mascot and the vigilante.

Who else could the Man of Steel turn to for help ridding the earth of the only substance that can harm him? And who else would help him, even knowing, as Bats surely does, that it's an impossible task?

Impossible? Well, even if someone else wasn't hoarding kryptonite -- no, I'm not spoiling it, and so you'll have to keep reading -- there's always that one last nugget, sealed in a lead box, buried under a desk at DC Comics.

The ultimate betrayal? Sorry, Superman. But how the hell is anyone supposed to write stories about a guy without a single solitary weakness?

Now that the Man of Tomorrow has any right to complain -- he's in expert hands here. Artist Shane Dvis could give you a concussion with that pencil of his. I recommend borrowing a car to read the sequence where Superman gets punted through a corn elevator -- you're going to need the seatbelt. Michael Green and Mike Johnson know both of these heroes to a T. Want proof? Skip to the moment that Superman, still recovering from getting worked over, complains that no one ever seems to get the drop on Batman. Or skip to the last panel. Or just take my word for it.

World's finest? Damn straight. My only regret? We don't get a chance to see these guys tussle with each other a bit.

But I guess we all know who'd win that one.

--Jonah Nolan July 2008"

You can't blame me for been skeptical though. I'll believe it fully if its confirmed by the studio or Goyer himself.

If The Man of Steel is going to come out in 2013 maybe Jonah Nolan will make his directing debut before then as there is still time to do that in the next year or so

I'm with you man. I wince a bit when I see things saying we, us, the members of the forum, etc. I would much prefer people owning their opinions rather than couching it in consensus.

Im liking that WB is getting their sh** together
But Im nervous that their getting nobody directors for their projects. Im sure their are some bigger directors who would like to do these projects
C.Nolan and Marc Webb hadnt done big budget action films before getting their respective Superhero films, but at least they have critical acclaim for their work

Ya know the whole Nolan doing JL has me thinking this is BS. Why would he commit to a film he wouldn't be making for years?

But if he does, it's a huge contradiction to everything Nolan did in BB and TDK, when he specifically stated that his Batman was self contained. And he just throws it all out. Those soon to be seven years of Nolan Batman films when he is self contained was for nothing? It just goes to JL? It's ****ing stupid. Nolan knows better than that.

I disagree with Octerberist too. The whole idea of Batman makes it believable and possible for anyone to become a superhero. Nolan used this with his plausibility and made the whole creation of the superhero Bruce's. If Nolan's Batman joins the JL, it's a huge contradiction to the idea of Nolan's films. I just don't see it happening, nor do I ever want it to happen. I'd rather have JL film without Batman. Not just Nolan's Batman in space bothers me, but Batman in general in space does.

It's a contradiction of his words of opinion, which is separate from the movie. He's also remarked that Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon are both in a crib somewhere in Gotham. Guess what, if in B3 they're both teen adults, that doesn't at all contradict what was shown in the films. That's all that matters here.

And it's silly to criticize Nolan for "backtracking" on something he's said 3 years ago. I'm damn sure none of us haven't changed our positions at one point, which could be made out to look hypocritical.

Not really. I think the only agreement they made was that if WB let Nolan make Inception, he had to make Batman 3. Right now, Nolan is at a point where he doesn't even need to make Batman 3. But he is anyway, which I'm glad.

i still think with the right story they could have nolan's batman easily work with other characters. Like he was the first costumed hero, and the more crazier stuff just wasnt happening out in the public just yet or not even there on the planet.

As for wb i do really want things to be finally on the up and up with dc movies. And if we got more truthful news and press releases and all that. It would so make many fans happy.

Yeah this makes the whole Escaltion thing at the end of the first movie mean even more. I always thought it was better when Batman was the first of the costumed heroes.

Yeah they would really do themselves a HUGE favour to confirm (or deny) something. Fans would probably be more trusting of them.

Totally if they want us fans/general audiences to know things are much different now then how things were before. Confirming and making official press releases and interviews with nolans, greg, etc.... folks involved would be great. But i guess they have their reasons right now with staying mute.

Well maybe nothing is finalised yet or what is is only very small. They probably don't want to get our hopes up.

I'm with you mate, I'm actually quite worried this will all turn out to be false. But lets hope not eh?

Now that WB's woke the hell up and killed that abomination of a Justice League Mortals film helmed by Miller, when we would have seen a different Batman existing next to Nolans Batman universe.

WB's finally has created a solid team with the DCE......and Nolan is a great storyteller, craftsman and director.

Nolan and his team would know how to tell a great Justice League film onscreen....he has the talent to do it and with Johns and Lee working with him on the creative side of things from DCE and other comic fanboys like Goyer and Jonah involved. The sky is the limit now....potentially.

The only thing that worried me a bit is Jonah Nolan POSSIBLY making his directorial film debut with this important Man Of Steel Supes film?

Meh....I would rather see a director who has some more experience behind the lense directing the film and working with Chris Nolan as Exec Producer.

I compare this to what occurred with the GL film. Berlanti was the original man assigned to direct, but I and others worried that WB's should be hiring an experienced director for such an important film like GL. WB's ended up wisening up and bringing in Campbell to direct while Berlanti would still be a producer.

Now Berlanti seems like the front runner for another DC hero film with The Flash, which would seem like a better fit for him. The same process and path should be taken with Jonah IMO.

Perhaps Jonah Nolan can be given a shot at directing the Wonder Woman film or the Green Arrow SuperMax film to get his feet wet?

I don't see Nolan DIRECTING a JL movie but a far as overssethe WB's DC projects that I could see.

You never know if Jonah Nolan directs the Superman movie he may hit it out of the park.

If all these DCE rumours are true then Green Arrow: Supermax would certainly fit into the continuity of what they are trying to accomplish.

In order to have a JL movie, you first need a decent reboot of Superman to happen. It just doesn't make sense to me to skip use of Nolan and use a rookie on Superman to setup a possible JL (which banks on all these SH's being successful)
