Jonathan Nolan is “excited” for Batman in “Justice League”

"I was a big Batman fan when I was a kid," Nolan admits.

Jonathan Nolan has no qualms about talking “The Dark Knight Rises.” Though the final film in his brothers “The Dark Knight” trilogy has divided fan opinions, he admits in a new interview that he’s happy with the fact Robin was finally introduced in Christopher Nolan’s Batman universe.

“It is a little hard to imagine Robin working in that universe, so the idea had to be limited to that gag at the end. But Joe’s character is very important to the story. In any movie you need a character looking at proceedings the way you see them, and Joe’s character is that character for this film,” he told Empire. “One of my favourite scenes is when John tells Bruce how he knew he was Batman. It’s like that scene in ‘The Prestige’ where the little kid sees through Christian’s trick. Little kids, they don’t have any illusions, they just see the truth of the situation. I feel there’s a kind of spiritual connection between the two movies there.”

He continued about the Batman characters they didn’t include, “Part of what’s compelling about Chris’s take is the naturalism of it and I think that’s one of the things I loved about the Frank Miller comic books was that they were sort of urban, gritty vigilante stories first and foremost. So everything had to stick within that universe. It’s hard to imagine [in these movies] any of the rogue’s gallery characters who have sort of a more supernatural or science-fiction bent to them.”

It remains to be seen whether Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Robin will have a place in Warner Bros.’ upcoming “Justice League” film. It’s due out in 2015 and so far it’s not been explained how the already established DC Universe will fit into that ensemble movie, but Nolan said he’s looking forward to seeing how it all turns out.

“I’m incredibly excited. I was a big Batman fan when I was a kid. In fact he was the only comic-book character I really liked. I went through a brief spell where I was reading Captain Britain, because I was an English kid living in the States, and Wolverine for 30 seconds, Spider-Man too, but really Batman was the one. And I love that there are different versions of the character. I love that in the context of The Justice League, he’s kind of the black sheep of that family.”
