DC Entertainment President Addresses Movie Rumours

DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson addressed the recent stories that Christopher Nolan is overseeing a new Superman movie and the supposed planned Watchmen sequel rumour.

On Christopher Nolan taking a 'godfather' type role for a new Superman film:
"Wouldn't you like to know!"

"We don't have any plans about that, and as I've mentioned, in the coming months we'll be making a lot of announcements about what our content plans will be, but right now, that's nothing but rumor — and we frankly don't say a whole lot more about rumor than that, so..."
On the possibility of a Watchmen sequel:
"No, that's all rumor," she said. "I'm not sure where it came from. We'll be looking closely at our whole library and making sure we're looking for opportunities to mine every property where it makes sense, and with integrity, but that's just rumor."

"No, there are no plans to do that!"
