Batman lives in Batman’s world and Superman lives in Superman’s world, according to producer Charles Roven. In an interview with Shocktillyoudrop he revealed a little about the chances of a DC shared movie universe, saying “That may be in somebody’s mind but right now the Batman lives in his world and the Superman lives in his world. Those stories are those stories and we haven’t thought beyond each individual picture”. He also revealed that official pre production still hasn’t begun on either The Dark Knight Rises or Superman :Man of Steel yet. He also spoke about the possibility of Batman 4.
Well, I think that Chris Nolan has said that he wanted to make a trilogy and this is a trilogy. As far as we all know, this is it. This is the trilogy. The Dark Knight Rises is the third part of what Chris created with Batman Begins and we’re not looking past that. I’ve said this about Chris before: I’ve never known Chris to do anything but focus on the movie he’s making. He gets completely immersed in the movie he’s doing and I know that all he’s thinking about right now when it comes to Batman, the Dark Knight Rises, is making it the best movie he can. He’s not thinking, “will there be another one?” And he’s already said, in his mind, it’s a trilogy. So I think he’s just focusing on making this the best he possibly can and that’s it.
I’m a bit suprised that they’ve yet to start ‘official pre production’, especially for Superman. At least they already know how they want to portray the batman universe, but I was hoping they’d put a lot of work into Superman. And as for a shared movie universe? I prefer things as they are, single focused stories are generally better. Don’t most comic fans complain about crossovers anyway?? I can see Marvels movieverse getting very cluttered…
How do you guys feel about it? DC Movieverse, thumbs up or down?
