A new report indicates Warner Bros. executive are waiting to gauge the performance of director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel before deciding to move ahead with the long-developing Justice League.
Saying “This is the end of our take on this character,” The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan insists he won’t have any involvement in Warner Bros.’ planned Batman franchise reboot or the in-development Justice League movie.
There’s a lot to unpack in the comments of Warner Bros’ movie president Jeff Robinov about the second Green Lantern movie, including what looks like an acknowledgment that the first one wasn’t all that it could be – and a worrying sign that the current plan learns all the wrong lessons from the success of The Dark Knight.
Warner Bros. President Jeff Robinov, who says The Flash finally has “a solid script,” knows how to improve the next Green Lantern movie. That reportedly begins with throwing out the early outline and starting from scratch.

Confirming an earlier report, incoming Warner Bros. President Jeff Robinov says a new script is in the works for a Justice League movie, and that the studio will reboot the Batman franchise following The Dark Knight Rises, but with the involvement of Christopher Nolan.
A profile of incoming Warner Bros. President Jeff Robinov mentions plans for a Justice League movie in 2013. Is that merely a mistake, or is the studio resurrecting the project it abruptly shelved in early 2008?
