Speaking with Hero Complex, Christopher Nolan has confirmed that his third Batman movie will be titled “The Dark Knight Rises.” He also confirmed that the Riddler won’t be the villan—squashing a recent round of rumors.
“It won’t be the Riddler,” Nolan said. “We’ll use many of the same characters as we have all along, and we’ll be introducing some new ones.”
Not surprisingly, Nolan is also bucking the 3D trend—choosing to focus on HD and IMAX instead.
Can’t say I disagree with the 3D situation, but it will be interesting to see where they go with the villain—lots of possibilites there. The Riddler seemed like the natural choice, but that’s probably why Nolan wants to go in a different direction.
