The Third Batman Film Will Be Called “The Dark Knight Rises”
While I loved Inception and how it messed with my mind-hole, perhaps my favorite thing about the movie was that its release meant that Christopher Nolan was finally done with it and could move on to make the next movie in his epic Batman franchise. In pursuit of that goal, he announced in an interview today that the title for the film will be “The Dark Knight Rises.” Nolan also confirmed that we will not be seeing Edward Nigma or The Riddler in this newest installment. Hit the jump for a summary of everything I know right now.
- The film will be called “The Dark Knight Rises”
- It will have neither The Riddler nor Mr. Freeze as villains
- Like the first two, it is being written by Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonah
- The film will not be shot or post-converted to 3D
- They will be shooting in IMAX, just like for the Dark Knight (trust me, you will want to see this on a real IMAX screen)
- Release will be in 2012 (Summer, I’m guessing)
So that’s all I have. Let me know what you think of this latest news. Do you like the new title? Have a better suggestion?
