While this is all speculation, the well-regarded Batman-on-Film chatted with a longtime source who advised them of some possible scenarios for the future of the Batman live-action movie franchise.
Early scuttlebutt had a Justice League of America movie in development for a 2015 release, a project that would introduce audiences to the screen's new Dark Knight, with a solo Batman film slated for release two years after that.
But now JLA is now reportedly going back to the drawing board and searching for a new screenwriter, while Warner Bros. is waiting to see how Man of Steel fares at the box office before green-lighting JLA.
“If Superman [this summer’s Man of Steel] is huge, then they’ve bought themselves some time and will have a franchise to hang their hat on for seven, eight years. The need for Batman won’t be as great, and [the reboot] of that franchise can wait until the Superman trilogy is done,” claims BoF's source.
That means Batman's next solo movie might not hit screens until 2019.
