The Batman trilogy, directed by Christopher Nolan, set a precedent in the superhero genre. However, few know that The Dark Knight of Christian bale He was close to being part of the DC Extended Universe and sharing the scene with the Justice League.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, screenwriter David S. Goyer revealed that Warner Bros. had lobbied Nolan to link the trilogy to the fledgling DCEU. Despite the insistent request, the filmmaker gave up on the idea because he wanted to maintain creative control.
“Chris always wanted to keep the ‘Dark Knight’ movies as a separate entity and the studio still wanted, understandably, to bring it to an expanded DC universe,” he told the specialized outlet.
“Obviously, he was a producer on ‘Man of Steel,’ and it’s tempting to think they were linked, but actually they weren’t. I mean, I’m sure one could do it retroactively, ”he added.
Unlike current productions that are forced to be framed in cinematic universes, Christopher Nolan previously told Entertainment Weekly that he had no obstacles when it came to making unusual decisions and realizing his vision.
“We were able to develop the trilogy with total creative freedom and show the studio what we wanted to do,” he explained, noting that another advantage was the time between sequels. “When we did Batman Begins, we did not know that it would take us three years to make the next one and four to the third,” he emphasized.
In conclusion, he was grateful that his work was not perceived as a machine or a commercial asset for the studio: “As the genre gained fame, the pressures got bigger and bigger. We did it at the right time ”.
