Cruise, Holmes settlement
NEW YORK - Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, above, reached a settlement in their divorce, her attorney said Monday.
"The case has been settled and the agreement has been signed," Holmes attorney Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement. An assistant in Wolfe's office who would not give her name would not elaborate on the agreement.
"We are thrilled for Katie and her family and are excited to watch as she embarks on the next chapter of her life," the statement said. "We thank Tom's counsel for their professionalism and diligence that helped bring about this speedy resolution."
Holmes filed for divorce less than two weeks ago, putting an end to the romance that began in 2005. The couple has a 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
Earlier Monday, the couple asked for privacy.
"We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri's best interests. We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other's commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other's roles as parents," read the statement from Holmes and Cruise's reps, Nanci Ryder and Amanda Lundberg.
Nolan: No to superhero film
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Now that Christopher Nolan is done with his epic Batman trilogy, the filmmaker has quashed speculation he might be involved in a "Justice League" movie featuring the Dark Knight.
In an interview over the weekend, writer-director Nolan said his take on Batman ends with next week's "The Dark Knight Rises" and he has no "Justice League" plans.
Fans have conjectured Nolan might return to Batman by producing a big-screen take on "Justice League," DC Comics' "Avengers"-style ensemble whose key superheroes include the Dark Knight, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.
Nolan guesses the "Justice League" rumors started because of his involvement as a producer on next summer's Superman relaunch, "Man of Steel."
