Nolan To Produce Batman Reboot After The Dark Knight Rises; Warner Prepping The Flash and Wonder Woman Movies

Just yesterday, we brought you the news that Warner Bros. president Jeff Robinov reportedly stated that the brothers Warner are planning a Justice League feature film for a 2013 release, after Zack Snyder‘s forthcoming Superman: Man of Steel hits theaters in 2012.

Today, the LA Times reports that Jeff Robinov has confirmed that the Justice League script is in development, though he wouldn’t reveal who was penning the screenplay. The new Warner Bros. president also stated that the Batman film franchise will be rebooted after Christopher Nolan‘s impending return to Gotham with The Dark Knight Rises.

Robinov said,

“We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman… Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”

Robinov also mentioned that big-screen adaptations of The Flash and Wonder Woman are currently being written, and could serve as spin-offs after the Justice League movie. With NBC‘s current television adaptation of Wonder Woman in production, you likely would have assumed that a feature film was out of the question. Robinov dismissed that notion:

Wonder Woman could be a film as well, the same way that Superman Returns came out while Smallville was on.”

Justice League is slated to hit theaters in 2013.
The Flash is slated to hit theaters in 2013.
Wonder Woman is slated to hit theaters in 2015.
