    No New DC Movies Until 2015 - IGN

    Well Warner Brothers and DC really messed up on this. Green Lantern bombed and any Justice League movie is not going to be as good as Avengers. Christian Bale is Batman. Having any other actor portray him would not be the same. Marvel and Avengers win.

    The Dark Knight Rises hits this month. Man of Steel is next summer. And then after that... it looks like we may all be taking a bit of a break from live-action DC films.

    The LA Times reports that "none of the DC movies currently in the works has a producer, director or cast, save for Zack Snyder’s $200-million-plus Man of Steel. ... As a result, it will likely be at least three years before a new DC title hits the big screen, according to several knowledgeable people close to Warner Bros. who were not authorized to speak publicly."

    The paper also confirms that Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan did at least talk to Warner Bros. about continuing on as producer on the recently announced Justice League movie and planned Batman reboot. Nolan said over the weekend that he will not be involved with those films.

    "It was a conversation we had," Warner Bros. film group President Jeff Robinov says. "Obviously anything you can get Chris involved in is great."

    So now the plan appears to be to bring awareness of the DC characters to the public over the next few years via games, toys, comics and TV -- as with the reveal today that the Justice League will be appearing in a Silver Age Arkham City game sequel. But do people really need to be made aware of characters like Wonder Woman, the Flash and Aquaman?

    "My hope is that over the next month or so," Robinov says, "we’ll be ready to lay out the plan for the next DC movies."
