BATMAN 3: CHRISTIAN BALE and director CHRISTOPHER NOLAN reteaming for the follow up to THE DARK KNIGHT
CHRISTOPHER NOLAN making the gossip rounds for the past several days – a lot of it surrounding his producing role on SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL. But what about directing the inevitable follow-up to THE DARK KNIGHT – which has never been 100% confirmed but that most of us in the blogosphere have pretty much taken for granted?
“It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way,” says Nolan. “I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it.”
“I think you can at this point, yes [I will be directing BATMAN 3].”
According to Sir MICHAEL CAINE who is expected to reprise his role as Bruce Waynes mentor/butler Alfred, filming will –
“probably start in May next year…”
Chris [Nolan] and co-writer Jonathan Nolan are not telling anyone who the villain will be in the new film.
THRALL WORLD would love to see Nolan tackle the KNIGHTFALL storyline so we would say BANE!! But the whole point of Nolan’s so-far incredible BATMAN retelling was the YEAR ONE BATMAN and BANE didn’t show up on in GOTHAM until Year 10 (???) or something like that.
Announced BATMAN 3 release date: July 20, 2012.
