Batman vs Superman could be set in the same universe as Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.
In an interview with ComicBookResources, the Dark Knight Trilogy and Batman vs Superman screenwriter David S. Goyer reviewed that he has had discussions with Chris Nolan about the possibility of setting the upcoming DC comic flick in the Dark Knight universe.
“And so Chris Nolan and I absolutely had discussions about that with regards to Superman or Batman and where he exists in the public consciousness and whether or not this was aligned with that or a betrayal of [the Dark Knight universe] or not,” Goyer said. “And sometimes you say, ‘Yeah, maybe this is different,’ and you go for it.”
Goyer, however, is rather tentative, adding, “sometimes you’re celebrated for and sometimes you’re not. And then sometimes you say no, this is the way it’s been and this is what we should do.”
