Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel Screenwriter David Goyer recently did an interview over at Hey You Guys, where he talks about how there will definitely be a new Batman for a Justice League movie and a shared DC Universe movie series. Here is what Goyer had to say.
"Zack has said that Bruce Wayne exists in this universe. "It would be a different Bruce Wayne from Chris’ [Nolan] Dark Knight trilogy, and it would be disingenuous to say that Zack and I haven’t had various conversations on set, around ‘what if’ and ‘moving forward’. That having been said, it’s all going to depend on the next few weeks. Warner Bros has hopes that there will be more Man Of Steel films, and that this will be the beginning of a shared universe. We could meet Batman, or Wonder Woman, or the Justice League in these movies. But they all hinge on box office reception. If that happens, I would be happy, and nervous, to dive in."
"They’re hoping that the film does well, but god forbid it doesn’t, things will change. I don’t know how many different iterations of Justice League they’ve tried to mount over the last decade or so. But for one reason or another they haven’t happened. I think Warner Bros has seen – and Chris deserves the biggest credit for this – that we were able to revitalise Batman and put it into the first billion dollar superhero film. And they’re hoping that Superman will be revistalised as well. And if we can do Batman and Superman, then maybe we can move on to Wonder Woman, and The Flash, and characters like that."
Man of Steel is looking like it's going to do very well at the box office, so a Justice League movie with a brand new Batman looks it will happen eventually.
