Christopher Nolan Given Executive Producer Credit On Justice League


Much like many of you out there, we remain in a state of excitement after viewing the final trailer for Justice League since it was released online this past Sunday. That said, we must maintain our composure because there’ll undoubtedly be much news coming our way between now and when the highly anticipated film actually graces cinemas on November 17.

In fact, the past few days have yielded some rather generous fruit in that regard. Not only have more promos surfaced, but we’ve also been treated to concept art, cast interviews and much more. Obviously, additional TV spots will be put out before you know it, so let’s keep our fingers crossed for more fresh footage.

Speaking of which, an ad that recently aired during a football game lent some rather interesting information. Spotted by Batman-News and posted on their Twitter page, the screencap confirms that none other than Christopher Nolan served as an executive producer on the film.

Truth be told, this comes as somewhat of a surprise even when considering the lauded filmmaker’s history with Warner Bros. and DC. After helming The Dark Knight Trilogy, Nolan has taken a bit of a step back, not being as heavily involved in other superhero productions as he obviously was with his modern classics that featured Batman.

Actually, he did come up with the story for Man of Steel along with screenwriter David S. Goyer, and then received an executive producer credit on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the latter of which he was probably minimally involved with. In this case, we’re assuming that he had even less to do with Justice League, but the studio probably sees his name as being a seal of quality, thus he’d be thrown into the mix.
