Warner Bros Pictures Group’s President, Jeff Robinov, has recently given EW a much needed update on DC Comics’ plans for the next batch of superhero movies, with the biggest one being that Christopher Nolan will not be producing the much-awaited Justice League movie.
“It’s setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward,” says Robinov of Man Of Steel, the next major DC movie to hit our screens. “In that, it’s definitely a first step.
“I think you’ll see that, going forward, anything can live in this world,” continues Robinov. “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 [Snyder] and Chris [Nolan] have done with this film is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world.”
Even though Robinov has already shot down rumors about Nolan’s participation in Justice League, the good news is we may not have to wait long to find out who will be sitting in the director’s chair:
“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,” said Robinov.
