‘Justice League’ Batman Won’t Be the ‘Dark Knight’ Batman… You Follow Me?

There's a lot of Batmans floating around out there, so try to keep up.

Remember the Batman you know and love from Christpher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy. Well forget him, because if and when the Justice League movie finally gets made, it will feature a different Batman. To be clear, I'm not talking about a different actor playing Batman. I'm talking about a Batman character who is completely independent of the Batman in the Nolan films. Holy Batmans, Batman. That's a lot of Batmans.*

In a recent interview with Den of Geek, David S. Goyer, who recently penned the script for Man of Steel, had this to say.

It would be disingenuous to say Warner Bros doesn't hope that this would be the starting point for a shared universe. And Zack has said that Bruce Wayne exists in this universe. It would be a different Bruce Wayne from Chris' [Nolan] Dark Knight's all going to depend on the next few weeks. Warner Bros has hopes that there will be more 'Man Of Steel' films...But they all hinge on box office reception.

Considering Man of Steel has already pulled in $21 million from Thursday night's screening, I think it's safe to say that box office reception will not be a hindrance.

*Actually, it's just two Batmans. I was being dramatic.
