Morgan Freeman Speculates on a Sequel to The Dark Knight
02.03.10 by BJSprecher
Comic book movie fans should be thankful for actor Morgan Freeman, because he is one of the few members of The Dark Knight camp talking about a possible sequel. Back in December, Freeman said that director Christopher Nolan "couldn't possibly not be" working on a sequel, and confessed that he would like to see Batman tangle with Catwoman.
Now, Freeman is stoking the Batman 3 fire once again. In a recent interview with BBC Radio One, he admitted that nothing was "carved in stone," but that Warner Bros. has to be developing a sequel.
Well ... I always say, now I've been asked this question a number of times, and I don't think that Warner Brothers ... the board of directors ... the chairman or the president ... or any of those people are stupid.
Which means there's going to be another Batman movie.
As to the question of whether he will be asked to reprise the role of Bruce Wayne's confidante, Lucius Fox, Freeman was less certain.
We'll only know that when the script is written and the same guy's writing the third script, if there is to be one.
For his part, Nolan has not wanted to talk about making a sequel to The Dark Knight, instead focusing attention on his latest movie, the intellectual thriller Inception, due in theaters July 16.
