DC unlikely to make new movies until 2015

Next Friday’s The Dark Knight Rises and next year’s Man of Steel will likely be the last time we’ll see DC characters on the big screen for a while.

According to the LA Times, director Christopher Nolan, who is ending his run on Batman next week, has declined to take a production role on a planned Justice League movie. While he is producing Man of Steel next summer, the fact that Warner/DC has no one attached to any of the rest of their properties means that it’s unlikely anything will see the light of day until at least 2015.

DC has, in their film making, done the opposite of Marvel, keeping directors on for multiple film runs, while Marvel frequently changes directors, usually to someone brand new who can be hired for cheap. They also plan to reverse The Avengers with Justice League, spinning out from the group movie into individual films.

Warner film group president Jeff Robinov says he’s ready to start soon: “My hope is that over the next month or so we’ll be ready to lay out the plan for the next DC movies.”
