I think that he's smart not to be in Justice League. He's built the Batman he wanted to be now it's time for him to move on to other things.

I'm sick of this rumor. Why would he be in the Justice League movie? Bruce moved on, and changed his name.

Joseph Gordon Levitt would be the new Batman(not Nightwing), and the other problem is those movies were meant to be in their own universe, and grounded.

MoS is the vehicle for the JL movie that needs to happen. We've seen the Avengers together.

And I think the next iteration of Batman can get away with not showing his origin story. Batman is already established.

NEWS: Batman confirms he is done allowing Christian Bale to play him.

lol :P, seriously though i like him as batman but in the universe he is set in theres no otherworldly elements and they just threw the best villians at him so it wouldnt make much sense when you do more standalone movies set in reality as we know it versus being in the justice league where everything is out of his controll
