Christian Bale's Batman Will Only Return if Christopher Nolan Is At The Helm

Christopher Nolan Won’t Make More Superhero Films, Keeps Star Wars Open

Christopher Nolan is done with superheroes.

The Dark Knight trilogy remains one of the best Batman movies for DC fans and if you’ve been holding your breath for a fourth movie – don’t. In an interview with YouTuber HugoDecrypte, the 52-year-old director was asked if he would make another superhero movie and Nolan replied, “No.”

Nolan also said he would never make a television series but plans to continue making movies in 10 years. He wasn’t specific about what movies he’d like to work on but when asked if he would want to make a Star Wars movie, Nolan paused to think about the question and then dodged answering it.

While the director first found mass success with his Batman films, Nolan has plenty of experience with the sci-fi genre. His famous sci-fi films include Inception and Interstellar. It’s also worth noting that he is a massive Star Wars fan himself. Nolan once admitted that directing a Star Wars film makes him nervous.

“As far as whether or not I would have ever done it, the truth is I think I’d be afraid to touch it!” Nolan said ahead of the release of The Force Awakens (via The Daily Beast). “I’m a lot more comfortable trying to do my own thing than carrying the weight and expectation of the entire world — particularly 40-somethings like me who live and die with each new bit of information about Star Wars.”

As of late, Nolan has been making historical and World War films. The latest being Oppenheimer and Dunkirk. Oppenheimer releases on 21 July.

The next Batman movie that fans can look forward to is Brave and the Bold in 2025 whereas Star Wars fans don’t have to wait much longer for new content as the Disney+ series Ahsoka will be premiering on the streamer on 23 August.
