My conspiracy theory for a shared universe with TDKR.

Discussion of the Superman reboot produced by Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas.

Here's what I personally think. WB did in fact somewhat force Nolan into the ending we got in TDKR. And the whole thing about MoS not being a part of a future Justice League continuity is a total lie. They KNOW that they want a quick way to compete with The Avengers, so they're rushing through a plan to connect all these movies, with which Nolan's trilogy counts. ... indirectly. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (I'd put money on this) would be Batman in the Justice League film, which connects Nolan's trilogy to it. Henry Cavill is Superman in the Justice League movie. Bank on it.

As much as I absolutely loved TDKR and was blown away by it, there are decisions made in that film that totally reek of studio interference.

Batman Begins
The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight Rises
Man of Steel
Justice League
(Whatever else is made; Wonder Woman, The Flash, etc.)

^^ They inhabit the same universe. You just watch. The easy excuse is that you can ignore everything outside of Nolan's trilogy if you want (which is fair). Bruce's story is done, Alfred is done - nobody really has to return except for Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

I don't think WB wants anything to do with that movie anymore.
Although, in my personal opinion, it wasn't a bad movie at all. I just don't see WB wanting to connect it.
I'd say a reboot is either in the cards, or they're just going to insert him in the JL film without his own origin movie (like Hawkeye in Avengers, or Black Widow).

In my opinion the JL movie will be a long way away and have next to nothing to do with Nolan. Henry Cavill will be Superman and Batman will be re-booted. :cry:

That's a legitimate possibility (we can't know for sure; it's truly up in the air), but I refuse to believe that WB isn't so money hungry that they would try to churn this out as quickly as possible. A long way away seems improbable. They want their Avengers and they want it now. But who knows?

For the next 4-6 years. WB will be making 1 film per year with a Justice League Memebr (DC heroes).

I'm concerned that Wonder Woman might be a lost cause to them. I think she could easily carry her own movie (essentially handle it like a female Thor), but I don't know if WB would ever be convinced that a female can be the star of her own film. This goes for Hollywood in general too. Whenever they attempt it, we end up getting Catwoman, Elektra, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, Barb Wire... all dreadful movies. :suicide:

Every DC superhero movie not involving Nolan will suck. They have sucked and will continue to suck. But an ensemble piece will bring a talented filmmaker to make a good film.

I think, outside of Nolan, WB/DC thrives with Watchmen and V For Vendetta. Both fantastic movies.
