Rumor has it Nolan and Synder will produce the film...
Take this with a huge grain of salt (if not more) ladies and gentlemen, but Latino Review reports that Warner Bros. is bringing Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale back for Justice League. The site claims they have discovered that Nolan is "Godfathering" the DC franchise as a response to Disney putting JJ Abrams in charge of the new Star Wars film and Joss Whedon holding the reins to The Avengers. According to their source, anything regarding DC is now going through Nolan and he will produce Justice League along with Zack Snyder, who may direct.
The site adds that the film is being shaped so that Bale will return as Batman alongside Henry Cavill as Superman from Man of Steel, noting that Warner Bros. is coming off an Oscar win for Argo and wants a franchise to go along with their prestige. They also note that Bale said last year that if Nolan found a script, he would potentially be willing to take on a fourth Batman film.
Ultimately how true this is remains to be seen, but on the (very) off chance that is, it could be very good for Justice League's future. No word from Warner Bros. confirming or denying the news.
