Christopher Nolan Confirms He Will Direct Batman 3
Posted 09.29.10 by Ryan
While Batman 3 may still be waiting for the inevitable green light, fans can be calmed by one factor: the sequel to The Dark Knight will retain the services of director Christopher Nolan. Nolan told Empire that he will direct the character of Batman for a third time.
It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way. I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so... If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it.
Nolan is currently working on another draft of the screenplay, with brother Jonathan Nolan already finished with his initial draft. The sequel already has a release date of July 20, 2012, and actor Michael Caine has announced that he believes the movie will go into production in April 2011. But what matters most to fans right now is Nolan's involvement, and with Nolan directing, fans can rest easy for the moment and continue to speculate over whom Nolan will cast as the movie's villain.
