A couple days ago another rumor hit that both Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan will be coming back on board the Justice League movie.
However, now another source is stating that Christian Bale is not coming back to reprise as Batman, but they do state Christopher Nolan is involved on the Justice League movie.
ComicBookMovie confirms what we first told you, and that is that Zack Snyder is involved as either a producer or director role on Justice League. Actually we were already told Snyder was offered a lucrative deal.
CBM also confirms what we told you about the Will Beall script and David Goyer, and that is that Beall's script is not totally thrown out. Regarding Goyer, we told you he is rewriting the Superman parts in the Justice League movie, and CBM confirms that Goyer is not writing the complete script as well.
CBM also says they won't be going with Christian Bale because WB wants to move in a new direction. We first told you about the new Batman in the Justice League movie and the Batman 2016 reboot featuring a Batman in his second year of being a hero, as well as the new movie possibly being based on the popular Arkham Asylum video game.
I'm waiting to hear back from our DC Entertainment source on the validity of both the Bale and Nolan rumor.
It should be noted that the original source of the Nolan and Bale rumor, Latino Review, has had quite a number of "rumors" shot down as of late, with the latest having Joss Whedon calling one of them "nonsense."
