CHRISTOPHER NOLAN, shown here directing a key scene from 'THE DARK KNIGHT', will direct a third BATMAN sequel and produce a new SUPERMAN sequel
Christopher Nolan has opened up for the first time to answer questions and to dispell rumors on his upcoming projects which include a third Batman movie which he will be directing and a new Superman sequel which he will be producing.
On a new Superman movie:
“It’s very exciting, we have a fantastic story. And we feel we can do it right. We know the milieu, if you will, we know the genre and how to get it done right.”
On working with Superman screenwriter David Goyer (screenwriter for THE DARK KNIGHT, BATMAN BEGINS, JUMPER, and all three BLADE movies as well as director of BLADE: TRINITY):
“[Goyer] basically told me, ‘I have this thought about how you would approach Superman. I immediately got it, loved it and thought: That is a way of approaching the story I’ve never seen before that makes it incredibly exciting. I wanted to get [Supermand producer (and Nolan’s wife)] Emma [Thomas] and I involved in shepherding the project right away and getting it to the studio and getting it going in an exciting way.”
On the new Batman sequel:
“Without getting into specifics, the key thing that makes the third [Batman] film a great possibility for us is that we want to finish our story. And in viewing it as the finishing of a story rather than infinitely blowing up the balloon and expanding the story.”
