I just want to know that a movie project exists, it's coming in 2020, it's in early pre-production, and the script is done. That's all I need. I don't even need a title or the cast.
My big fear is that nothing is going on, nothing is being developed, and we have a ten year gap before the next film. That would crush me.
You're actually worried that Nolan isn't working on anything and that he might not make a film for a decade?
His last 4 films were announced in January or February the year before they came out, I don't think it's strange at all that no one knows what the most secretive director in Hollywood is doing next
He's probably already in pre-production, meeting with actors etc. DiCaprio was announced as the lead for Inception about two weeks after the press release announcing the title and release date.
They were filming that within 4 months of the public becoming aware it even existed. Before that absolutely no one had a clue about what was going on.
There will definitely be something happening behind the scenes
This is key. We're close, very close.
Definitely close and history suggests that he won't reveal what he is making next until he has to.
I actually enjoy that he won't talk about future projects 3 or 4 years in advance, he keeps his cards close to his chest and then once it's announced everything starts to come together really quickly.
I prefer this way instead of something like the Matt Reeves Batman film as an example where he was announced as the director in January 2017 and it doesn't look like it's going to come out until late 2020 or mid 2021.
I highly doubt the Matt Reeves / Ben Affleck Batman film will ever happen.
I'd say Affleck is definitely done. And Matt Reeves is wasting his time and talent.
Start from scratch on the character and keep him out of the DCEU. They've got enough steam with Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Shazam, Flash, and Cyborg to carry the Justice League franchise. They don't NEED Batman and Superman anymore. We're in a new era of superhero films. Black Panther is the biggest heavy hitter on the Marvel side now. Anything can happen.
