SDCC '13: Jonathan Nolan Says He Won't Be Involved With 'BATMAN VS SUPERMAN'
"The Dark Knight Rises" screenwriter Jonathan Nolan says he won't be involved with Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" sequel which will introduce a new Batman. Were you hoping that he would join the creative and team-up again with David S. Goyer?
The lone creative contributor within Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy has stated that despite a sequel that will include Batman, he won't be involved with the project. Speaking at SDCC to promote his CBS show "Person of Interest", screenwriter Jonathan Nolan made it clear that he won't be joining his brother (producer) or David S. Goyer (screenwriter) on the "Man of Steel' sequel. Said the younger Nolan sibling, "The fun thing about working with such an iconic character is you know when you're doing it that at some point you're going to wrap up your story and see what the next fella down the line has to say about it, so I'm very excited to see what they do with him." In these very early days of the project, it currently appears that Goyer and Snyder will handle writing duties on the project by themselves. There's been a sizable amount of nitpicking at the amount of straightforward exposition in "Man of Steel" and Jonathan Nolan's name has been brought up on quite a few message boards and comment threads as a missing ingredient from "The Dark Knight" recipe.
