Fans may not see a rebooted cinematic version of the Dark Knight until the DC Comics ensemble film's release, reports Batman on Film.
An industry insider has claimed that would lead into a new Batman franchise that would be part of a DC cinematic universe similar to the one Marvel Studios built in the run-up to its Avengers movie.
Justice League already has a completed script from Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall, while there remains no word on the future of the Batman franchise following the recent conclusion of Christopher Nolan's trilogy.
The next film from DC/Warner Bros will be Zack Snyder's Superman reboot Man of Steel, which will arrive on June 14, 2013.
Justice League is expected to debut in 2015, with the Wachowskis most recently rumoured for the director's seat.
