News about the “Justice League of America” film has been…sparse. There was news that Ben Affleck was going to direct (he’s not), then it was perhaps the Wachowskis (as far as we know, they’re not). Then there was a script, but Warner Brothers decided to do a page one rewrite. Casting rumors have been just as confusing. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was in as Batman, then he wasn’t. They were going to keep Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern…but then maybe not. It’s clear WB has no idea what they are doing. That could be changing. Rumors are out there that Christopher Nolan is taking on the overseer as WB’s DC properties. He’s already producing Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”, so this makes sense.

That’s not all though. Rumors are also out there that Christian Bale is returning as Bruce Wayne/Batman for the film. But that may not be for a “Justice League” film. It might be a team up film with Henry Cavill (Superman). If you’re asking how this would make any sense what-so-ever given the mythology created by Nolan in “Batman Begins”, “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises”, I’m just as confused as you.
