Charles Roven Discusses Man Of Steel, Dark Knight Rises and The DC Universe

Shock Til You Drop recently sat down with Charles Roven for an exclusive interview.  Roven was asked questions about the newest Superman film, the sequel to the Dark Knight Dark Knight Rising and on whether or not we could possibly see Batman, Superman and other DC properties in the same universe.

Roven on the characters existing in the same universe:

No. That may be in somebody’s mind but right now the Batman lives in his world and the Superman lives in his world. Those stories are those stories and we haven’t thought beyond each individual picture.

Will Christopher Nolan return for a fourth Batman film?

Well, I think that Chris Nolan has said that he wanted to make a trilogy and this is a trilogy. As far as we all know, this is it. This is the trilogy. The Dark Knight Rises is the third part of what Chris created with Batman Begins and we’re not looking past that. I’ve said this about Chris before: I’ve never known Chris to do anything but focus on the movie he’s making. He gets completely immersed in the movie he’s doing and I know that all he’s thinking about right now when it comes to Batman, the Dark Knight Rises, is making it the best movie he can. He’s not thinking, “will there be another one?” And he’s already said, in his mind, it’s a trilogy. So I think he’s just focusing on making this the best he possibly can and that’s it.

About Christopher Nolan working on Dark Knight Rises and Man Of Steel:

It’s a huge workload, but there’s a way we’ve been talking about how to make it work. Hopefully, there will be a little bit of time in-between the start of production on both of them. Right now Dark Knight Rises is coming out in the summer of 2012 and Superman is coming out in the winter of 2012. So hopefully — and we’re just at the beginning phases of both of them. We haven’t even entered official pre-production on either one of them — there will be a little bit of room. They’re both going to be long shoots. I’m sure there’s going to be some overlap, but hopefully there’ll be as little overlap as possible.

Will there be a CGI Superman?

You know, one of the things that you probably know about me and us working on this movie is that the rumors are the rumors and when we have something to say, we’ll say it. Until we do, there’s nothing to say.

It’s an interesting interview, so for the full interview go and check out Shock Til You Drop.

The one thing that worries me is that he did not shoot down the rumors of CGI Superman.  This Superman film needs to be a success after Superman Returns, a fake looking CGI Superman would not be good, just look at the CGI Green Lantern from the trailer.
