Warner president Jeff Robinov has hinted that a movie adaptation of DC’s Justice League could arrive as early as 2013.
Speaking to The LA Times, the exec said that Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are in the frame to produce the project.
The report added that Christian Bale’s Batman from Nolan’s film series will not feature in the proposed movie. However, he did not rule out the possibility of Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ryan Reynolds’s Green Lantern teaming up.
Robinov also moved to dismiss speculation that the recently-announced Wonder Woman television series could hamper the project, pointing out that both Smallville and Superman Returns coincided in 2005.
He went on to say that big screen outings for Wonder Woman and The Flash could follow the production, reiterating that scripts for both projects are in the works.
Robinov has also been outlining plans to completely reboot the current Batman franchise after the next movie.
A Justice League movie was previously in development under the direction of George Miller before being shelved indefinitely in 2008.
