Sorry, But DUNKIRK Director Christopher Nolan Really Doesn't Want To Talk About BATMAN

Christopher Nolan spent a lot of time with the Caped Crusader after taking the helm of The Dark Knight Trilogy, but his response to a question about Ben Affleck's Batman was surprisingly blunt...

Christopher Nolan appeared at CinemaCon this week to promote upcoming World War II drama Dunkirk, but if you thought the filmmaker would be happy to talk Batman, think again! 

When he was asked about Ben Affleck's take on the iconic superhero and whether he follows that version of the character, Nolan was quick to shoot down any talk of the DC Universe's Batman. "No, no, I don’t want to go into that. I’m here to talk about Dunkirk." That's fair enough, but it's still pretty surprising that he didn't want to offer any sort of comment about Affleck's Batman!

It could be that he really did want to keep the focus on Dunkirk, but Nolan's split with Warner Bros. and the DC Films Universe is still shrouded in mystery as he served as an executive producer on Man of Steel before moving away from this world upon learning that the studio had plans to introduce a new Batman who would battle Henry Cavill's Superman in last year's Dawn of Justice

Nolan did, however, say this about how The Dark Knight Trilogy prepared him for Dunkirk! "I think the time I spent making large scale entertainment — with respect to entertainment, this is suspenseful entertainment. My 10 years of working with the character [of Batman] is essential to understanding imagery and sound, and push-and-pull in a particular direction." What do you think?
