Nolan won’t have creative input for Batman vs. Superman


The times, they are a-changing. With Interstellar underway, it seems like Christopher Nolan won’t have as much (if any) creative input on Batman vs. Superman. Rather than serve as producer on the film, Nolan is now an executive producer. (Which is like Eddie Izzard’s executive transvestite, obviously.)

It was The Playlist who noticed this initially, and they also reported that Ben Affleck isn’t just playing Batman in the the Man of Steel sequel, but he’s in fact signed to play Batman in multiple films. He’s better than some other actors for the role at least. Wonder if this means Affleck’s looking to helm the Justice League movie.

How do you feel about Nolan stepping away as a producer with some creative pull on Batman vs. Superman?
