Christian Bale says he won't be Batman in 'Justice League' movie

We already knew that Christian Bale probably wasn’t going to show up as Batman in the upcoming Justice League movie, the Avengers-style supergroup of DC heroes. First, Bale said that he wouldn’t do another Batman movie unless Christopher Nolan opted for a fourth Dark Knight chapter, which Nolan says isn’t happening. Then Man of Steel and Dark Knight screenwriter David S. Goyer confirmed that the Justice League’s Batman would be a rebooted character. So that pretty much closed the book.

Still, with news like this, sometimes you just have to hear it from the man himself.

Hans Zimmer will score Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar'

Epic music maestro Hans Zimmer is teaming up with Christopher Nolan yet again. The composer will write the score for Nolan’s  Interstellar. Collider first reported the news.

Zimmer told Collider that he has actually already started doing some writing for the music of Interstellar, which doesn’t hit theaters until Nov. 7, 2014. Described as a “heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding,” Interstellar is a time travel epic based on scientific theories developed by American physicist Kip Thorne, who will executive produce.

'Man of Steel' trailer: Oh my Zod! -- VIDEO

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… another new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, which combines this staticky message from General Zod with the darker tone, battle scenes, and shots of Henry Cavill’s Bearded Super-Fisherman we’ve seen in other spots. All of it, naturally, is set to Hans Zimmer’s pounding score. The fate of our planet rests on you watching this video:

Paramount and IMAX make five-picture deal that includes 'Transformers 4' and 'Interstellar'

Paramount will release five of its biggest upcoming tentpole movies — including Transformers 4 and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar — on IMAX, continuing the studio’s partnership with the supersize-screened movie theater company. “We’re thrilled and honored to once again team up with our longtime partners Christopher Nolan and Michael Bay,” said Greg Foster, chairman and president of IMAX Entertainment, in a statement following an announcement at Cinema-Con. “We can’t wait to showcase their vision to IMAX fans around the world.”

Nolan and Bay have previously used the special IMAX cameras to capture crisper action sequences in 70 mm, notably in the last two Dark Knight films and the most recent Transformers film. The Dark Knight Rises featured about an hour of IMAX footage, and Nolan has become a huge advocate for the technology. “For me, it’s simply the best way to make a film, and why more people haven’t done it I could not tell you,” Nolan told Film Comment in November.

Casting Net: Morgan Freeman in talks for another Christopher Nolan film; Plus, Michael Caine, Rachel McAdams, more

• Morgan Freeman is finding his way back to the world of Christopher Nolan. No, the Dark Knight director hasn’t signed Freeman onto his highly anticipated next original project. (Though Anne Hathaway might make the leap to sci-fi for that film, Interstellar.) Freeman is in final negotiations to star in the directorial debut of Wally Pfister, Nolan’s longtime cinematographer. Nolan is producing the film, called Transcendence. Plot details are being kept under wraps for the sci-fi film, but it’s been described as in the vein of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Inception. Already signed on are Johnny Depp, Kate Mara (127 Hours), Paul Bettany (A Beautiful Mind), and Rebecca Hall (The Town). Alcon Entertainment announced Freeman’s casting news via press release on Thursday. READ FULL STORY

'Man of Steel' will open door for more DC Comics superhero movies -- EXCLUSIVE

When Man of Steel hits theaters on June 14, it won’t just mark the arrival of a new Superman — it will also lay the groundwork for the future slate of films based on DC Comics.

Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, spoke to EW for this week’s cover story on the Zack Snyder-directed, Christopher Nolan-produced movie, and allowed a peek over the wall of secrecy surrounding their DC Comics plans: “It’s setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward. In that, it’s definitely a first step.”

Will Man of Steel include references to other DC heroes headed to the big screen, as Marvel did with its pre-Avengers series of flicks?

“I think you’ll see that, going forward, anything can live in this world,” he said. “[Nolan’s] Batman was deliberately and smartly positioned as a stand-alone. The world they lived in was very isolated without any knowledge of any other superheroes. What Zack and Chris have done with this film is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world.”

Casting Net: Anne Hathaway may re-team with Christopher Nolan; Plus, Jim Carrey, 'Kung Fu Panda 3,' more

• Anne Hathaway has her Academy Award. The Hathahaters have moved on. She’s already lined up a Lynn Shelton indie. What’s her next move? A Christopher Nolan blockbuster “interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding” of course! The Les Miserables actress is in final talks to reunite with her Dark Knight Rises director for his highly anticipated and annoyingly secretive film Interstellar, based on the theories of theoretical physicist (and time travel enthusiast) Kip Thorne. Matthew McConaughey has signed on to play the male lead in the film, which has already set a November 7, 2014 release date. Despite Hathaway’s diverse resume of musicals, rom-coms, rom-drams, teen flicks, and comics, she hasn’t tackled the sci-fi world yet, making the possibility even more exciting. [Deadline]

Jim Carrey has decided to join the comedy Ricky Stanicky, after a reported year of negotiations. The title refers to the name of an invented scapegoat for a group of troublemaking friends. What started out as a teenage joke continues into adulthood, though, until their significant others insist on meeting him. Instead of coming clean, they hire someone to be Stanicky. Carrey’s Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls director Steve Oedekerk will helm the Summit Entertainment feature. According to the report, James Franco was originally attached to star, and Joaquin Phoenix was in consideration as well. [THR]

'Man of Steel' TV spot: What kind of Superman will he be? -- VIDEO

The newest TV spot for Man of Steel doesn’t feature too much new footage, but it further develops the bleak-messiah tone seen in earlier trailers.

Casting Net: Matthew McConaughey rumored for next Nolan project; Plus, a 'Vacation' reunion, B.J. Novak in 'Spider-Man 2', more

• Matthew McConaughey may have been offered the lead in Christopher Nolan’s next film, Interstellar. As with any Nolan project, details are being kept tightly under wraps, but this project has been floating around for years. The story is based on the works of theoretical physicist Kip Thorne, who posited, among other things, that wormholes can be used for time travel. Nolan’s brother Jonathan (The Dark Knight, The Prestige) wrote the script, and they’ve already set a release date for November 7, 2014. As for McConaughey, if the reports are accurate, it seems like it would be a no-brainer. [Deadline]

• Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo are in early talks to play the Griswolds once more in an upcoming Vacation reboot. In the film, Ed Helms would play Rusty, who is attempting to take his own family on a road trip. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein — the team who wrote Horrible Bosses — penned the script and also plan to direct the project, which also stars Christina Applegate. Chase and D’Angelo’s roles are reportedly small. [Variety]
