Christopher Nolan Is Really And Truly Flying With A New ‘Superman’ Movie

Not a myth, not a rumor – Christopher Nolan really is spearheading the new “Superman” movie for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment. While he won’t be directing the film, Nolan will produce the project and fulfill a supervisor role in guiding the Man of Steel back into movie theaters. Sort of like an air traffic controller, except with significantly more red-and-blue tights.

“It’s very exciting; we have a fantastic story,” Nolan tells the Los Angeles Times of the new movie, which is coming from a screenplay by Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” collaborators David Goyer and brother Jonah Nolan. “And we feel we can do it right. We know the milieu, if you will, we know the genre and how to get it done right.”

Nolan revealed that his “Superman” film wouldn’t tie into his work in Gotham City, instead preferring to keep the two worlds completely separate from one another in order to preserve each film’s “internal logic.”

In other words, don’t expect Clark and Bruce to show up on each other’s screens ala Tony Stark in “The Incredible Hulk.” Based on the director’s words, DC Entertainment isn’t looking to build up towards “Justice League” in the same way that Marvel Studios is approaching “The Avengers.”
