A Justice League Movie?

Some big news came out in the movie world this past week, particularly applying to comic book movie fans. With “Man of Steel,” the latest Superman movie, set to release this summer, Warner Bros. Studios is working on bigger plans to help take on Marvel and “The Avengers.”

The plan, according to Latino Review, is to bring on Christopher Nolan to produce a movie where Superman recruits Batman to help him fight crime in a super superhero movie. The rumors are that Zack Snyder, director of “Man of Steel” and “300,” will be brought on to direct the movie.

Even without having seen “Man of Steel” yet, the pedigree of these two men should have movie fans everywhere on edge. Word on Nolan’s next project has been nonexistent until this point.

Also, the film is expected to set up for Christian Bale to return as Batman for the fourth time. Bale said in an interview with Empire Magazine last summer, “If Chris came to me with a script and said, ‘You know what? There is another story,’ then I would love the challenge of making a fourth one work.”

The stories line up for there to be a legitimate chance at this happening. Not to mention, Latino Review has broken several Warner Bros.-related pieces of news in the past, including that Heath Ledger would play the Joker and that Nolan would be involved in “Man of Steel.”

With the ever-increasing need for movie studios to make more and more money, it seems reasonable that Warner would put its two biggest chips on the table with Nolan and Snyder.

The only question I have is, when would this movie take place? They made it abundantly clear at the end of “The Dark Knight Rises” (2012) that Batman — at least as a symbol — was  dead and gone (you could even argue that Bruce Wayne died in the movie as well). He would no longer be roaming the streets of Gotham.

So, when will this Justice League movie happen? Will it take place in between “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight”? Will it happen in the eight-year period between “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” unbeknownst to Gotham? Will it happen post-mortem?

There are so many questions and so few answers at this early stage. However, I trust Nolan’s brilliant mind to come up with something reasonable.

When do you think the movie will take place? Are you excited at the possibility? Comment below and let me know what you think!
