Justice League... I just found out awhile ago that Christopher Nolan is reportedly in talks to oversee the potential ensemble film by Warner Bros and DC Comics. Not only that, but Nolan would have Christian Bale return as the Dark Knight in Justice League. If both of this turns out to be true, then all I can say is: HECK YEA! Personally speaking, it would pretty plausible to have the Bruce Wayne storyline from The Dark Knight trilogy factor into DC's hopeful cinematic answer to Marvel's The Avengers. I'm reading a lot of fans' online suggestions that an 'Easter Egg' appear after the end credits of this June's Man of Steel to show Henry Cavill's Superman visiting Wayne at his secret retirement spot (heck— It would also be sweet if Anne Hathaway's Selina Kyle was present in this scene). Also, even though it's implied that he put The Bat on autopilot prior to bailing out before the reactor core exploded over the sea at the end of The Dark Knight Rises, who's to say that Wayne actually just severed the cable holding the core before flying away to safety (overlooking the effects of the electromagnetic pulse caused by the blast)? I can picture an awesome shot in Justice League (that would be featured in its Super Bowl TV spot, hah) where The Bat—accompanied by an airborne Superman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman (minus the Invisible Plane)—comes zooming down on a metropolis in distress. Who's the villain wreaking havoc in this film, you ask? None other than Doomsday (played by Dwayne Johnson. You reading this, The Rock?)...because it's about time we once again see Superman throwing punches on the big screen. And how 'bout Jennifer Lawrence as Wonder Woman (excluding the fact Lawrence is in X-Men: First Class)? She dyed her hair for The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook, FYI.
Anyways, that's enough for speculation. Latino Review is the source that revealed this awesome news. Word has it that this website has been correct in leaking out major movie developments in the past (the last big development being that Harrison Ford is pretty much signed on to play Han Solo again in Star Wars: Episode VII...though Disney and Lucasfilm haven't confirmed this yet); let's hope that its winning streak continues.
