And they'll be bringing back Batman & Robin's Joel Schumacher to helm the Batman reboot!!! JK!
Schumacher may not be returning, but then again neither will Christopher Nolan as director, or Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, because after The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters, Warner Bros will be completely rebooting the Batman franchise.
Here's what WB chief Jeff Robinov had to say about it:
“We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman…Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”
Well at least Christopher Nolan will be involved on SOME level. That makes us feel a bit better about it.
Guess we'll see who they bring in to direct. How about they go the comedy route and bring in Judd Apatow for this one? LOLz.
We're thinking James Franco as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Harold Ramis as Alfred, Leslie Mann as Bruce's love interest, and
Seth Rogen Jason Segel Jay Baruchel Jonah Hill as the new Joker!
And hey…if they want to stay conventional for this reboot, that's fine! They can bring in Apatow when they reboot the franchise again in 2020.
Who do U think they should bring in to direct and star in the Batman reboot?
