Christopher Nolan In, Christian Bale Out In Latest Justice League Rumors

Gossipy high schoolers probably don't have as many rumors floating around them as DC’s upcoming (or is it?) Justice League movie does. This film has already in theory mingled with more actors and directors than most of Warner Bros. yearly output. So let’s take a look at the most recent facts and fictions.

ComicBookMovie.com is our source for the day, and right off the cape they let it be known once and for all that Christopher Nolan really is on board for producer. But the key thing to keep in mind about any of this is that "Fans' enthusiasm for more movies will be rewarded once Man of Steel comes out." Nearly everything anyone is counting on rides on the success of Man of Steel, and though they aren’t saying what any of the plans might be, nothing will be for certain until Man of Steel's likely box office success. In the meantime, Man of Steel's Zack Snyder is very likely to produce Justice League, as is his wife Deb, and there’s a possibility that he could direct as well.

It's not all good news though-- CBM's source says Bale will not be reprising the Batman role, as recent reports have said. And though there hasn't been word one way or another about The Dark Knight writer David S. Goyer jumping on board Justice League and rewriting Will Beall's rumored scrapped script. “If Bale is coming back and Goyer is penning, it’s news to Warner Bros.,” said the source.

And as always with news like this, these are still rumors until they’re verified by DC or Warner Bros. themselves. Or if you hear it from a gruff voice hanging in the shadows.
