Jeff Robinov is the new president of the motion picture group at Warner Bros., and one of his immediate goals is to make sure we all get to see a new Batman franchise in a few years, one that will no doubt tell the same story as the current Batman franchise, only not as well.
The LA Times says…
(Robinovs) first priority: Finally getting the Justice League, DC’s team featuring all its top characters, on the big screen in 2013.
Also being written for Warner are scripts featuring the Flash and Wonder Woman, who could be spun off into their own movies after Justice League.
Batman will continue to be a centerpiece beyond next year’s “The Dark Knight Rises” and Christopher Nolan’s departure from the franchise.
Robinov says, “We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman…Chris Nolan and [his producing partner] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”
I don’t know if it’s because real people just look goofy in those costumes or what, but unless they’re done incredibly well, superhero movies are kind of stupid, and more often than not they’re terrible, if not worse. Even a gynecologist from the 1600’s would say Batman and Robin was the worst thing he’s ever seen.
