The Dark Knight Retur . . . er Rises!

Christopher Nolan has revealed the name of the third film in his Batman trilogy. In July 2012, we’ll be lining up for The Dark Knight Rises. 

Good title, and it takes advantage of the The Dark Knights' popularity at the box office. Smart move, Nolan.

The co-writer/director went on to dispell the rumour that The Riddler would be the villain this time around, but he hasn't said who the main adversary will be either. It will be tough to beat Ledger's Joker.

Nolan also announced today that he’s convinced Warner Bros. to keep telling his story in 2D, and to continue down the path of hi-def IMAX sequences. He'll get no argument from us in The Basement on the subject either.


  1. What? A Hollywood director who DOESN'T want to jump onto the 3D bandwagon? I'm impressed.

    Good choice not going with The Riddler. Let's hope they hold off on introducing Catwoman right now too- especially since the love of his life was just knocked off in the second movie. I'm thinking that Bane might be interesting.

    And yeah, it's going to be hard to beat Ledger's Joker.

  2. I hear it could be Dr. Hugo Stranger, a little-know but very cool Batman villain. And would fit into Nolan's realistic take on the characters.
