Christopher Nolan is in the midst of promoting Oppenheimer, his epic film about the Manhattan Project, which the director was encouraged to make thanks to actor Robert Pattinson. This would not be news if it were not for the times in which we live, where influencers and YouTubers are gradually taking over the territory of big television and media. This time, the director of films like Interstellar and Inception has answered the questions of French YouTuber HugoDécrypte, and among those questions is one that has caught the attention: Is Nolan willing to make more superhero movies?
The moment came during a round of quick questions, and the answer was clear, brief and forceful: No. A bucket of cold water for those of us who still remember the trilogy that Christopher Nolan directed for Batman, especially considering the impact the saga had on the director’s career. But he’s not just sticking to superhero movies, when asked if he’d be willing to direct something for television, Nolan answered with a resounding no, so we can check that box off as well. The good news, and we say good because of the lack of rejection, is the possibility of directing a Star Wars movie.
