January 5, 2011: Producer Charles Roven Talks Superman Movie

Superman Movie News ShockTillYouDrop.com has published an interview with Producer Charles Roven, discussing his involvement with both the "The Dark Knight Rises" and the up-coming Superman movie.

    Shock: Is the thought that they [Superman and Batman] might have a shared universe one day?

    Roven: 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.

As for how much time Nolan will have to over-see Superman while doing his third Batman film...

    Shock: Knowing that he's sort of famous for that single-movie focus, how hard is it getting time balanced out for godfathering Superman as well?

    Roven: 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.

And those rumors about a CGI Superman?

    Shock: One last Superman question: There are persistent rumors of a CGI Superman. Can you comment on that?

    Roven: 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.
