Christopher Nolan Reiterates That He's Done With Superhero Movies

Christopher Nolan Reiterates That He's Done With Superhero Movies

Christopher Nolan's Batman films are widely regarded as the greatest superhero trilogy of all-time, leading many fans to hope that the Dunkirk director will return to the genre one day.

Out promoting his latest thriller, the WWII epic Dunkirk, director Christopher Nolan revealed that he's seen Wonder Woman and loved the Patty Jenkins-directed pic but he's happy to be on the sidelines of the DCEU and the superhero genre in general.  

"I mean, I watch the films. I enjoy films very much as a moviegoer these days. I spent 10 years of my life dealing with one of the greatest characters in popular fiction. It was a great honor and a privilege to work with that, but there’s a time to pass it on to new people."

In fact, the current discussion seems to be whether Nolan will ever helm a 007 film, something the Batman Begins director previously expressed interest in long ago- however, he's recently disclosed that he's only interested if he can "reinvent the franchise."

Although Nolan is listed as a producer on Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he had relatively very little to do with either film.  Unless something inexplicable occurs, don't expect to see Nolan tackling another superhero anytime soon.
