Batman threequel title revealed
Thursday 28 October 2010
Christopher Nolan announced that his third Batman film will be called
The Dark Knight Rises. The director confirmed it will not be in 3D but instead will use high-definition and IMAX cameras to enhance images.
Though he didn't reveal details yet, Nolan narrowed down the possibilities for the film's villain. He told the Los Angeles Times, "It won't be the Riddler," adding he would introduce some new characters.
After the success of fantasy thriller Inception this summer, Nolan returns to the Batman trilogy for a planned June 2012 release. The third film will star Christian Bale in the titlular role again, as well as Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy and Michael Caine.
Nolan will also produce a film based on another DC Comics action hero: Superman: Man of Steel, for which he co-wrote the script with his brother Jonas. It will be directed by Zack Snyder ( Legion of the Guardians, 300) and is due in theaters December 2012.
