Christopher Nolan says he will not be involved in Justice League, nor any future DC movie projects.

It has been rumored for a while that while Nolan would be finishing up his Batman trilogy with Dark Knight Rises, he would stay on at Warner Bros to guide the DC movieverse under his realistic, grim and gritty vision. Today, Nolan said to Entertainment Weekly in a hilariously deep and gravelly voice, "We're finished with all we're doing with Batman. This is the end of our take on this character. ... I've got no plans to do anything more, and certainly, no involvement with any Justice League project."
Despite rumors to the contrary, there is absolutely no evidence that Nolan's stance is a reaction to DC's recent treatment of fan favorite character Cassandra Cain. Nolan is likely not, as rumored, fuming at Barbara Gordon's return to her Batwoman Wonder Woman persona, snubbing the beloved teen and inappropriate object of fanboy sexual desires in the new DCU. It is also unlikely that Nolan's script for a Justice League movie was scrapped when executives at Warner Bros. felt that Nolan's insistence in realism went too far when the opening scene consisted of Superman falling to his death because, as Nolan pointed out, "In reality, men can't fly."
In fact, Nolan didn't give any more information on why he has decided not to continue with Warner Bros., but The Outhouse imagines he probably woke up one morning, as an alcoholic does when hitting "rock bottom," and realized he was an award-winning director who has made such critically acclaimed and award-winning films as Inception and Memento, and yet he was making a series of movies about a man who dresses up like a bat to fight crime. "It's like waking up in bed next to a fat, toothless crackwhore," we imagine Nolan would say, which further illustrates the juxtaposition of Nolan's serious movie world and the world of Batman fans, who would likely mark "waking up next to a fat crackwhore" as a notch in the win column.
