Details are slowly emerging about the billionaire bat’s next adventure. According to an article on the MTV website, Christopher Nolan’s (The Dark Knight and Inception) brother, Jonah Nolan has been working on the screenplay for the film, which has reportedly been finished.
And for those who have been wondering since “The Dark Knight” and Heath Ledger’s death, Nolan said The Joker will not be in the third installment, according to MTV.
Not much else is known about the story other than the fact that Nolan respects the roots of characters and plans to stay true to them according to an Empire Magazine interview retrieved from SuperHeroHype.
“What makes [Batman and Superman] the best superhero characters there are, the most beloved after all this time, is the essence of who those characters were when they were created and when they were first developed,” Nolan said in the interview with Empire. “And you can’t ever move too far from that.”
This to me, is terrific news.
On the production front, recently, Sir Michael Caine (The Dark Knight and Inception) has spilled a very little bit of information about the upcoming project at the London premiere of “Inception.”
When Digital Spy asked if Caine heard anything about Batman and the return of his character, Alfred, in the next film, he only had a date to offer.
“Oh I don’t know about that, but I think they are going to do it in April… but that is as much as I know.” Caine said.
Rumors of villains continue to fly at the moment and no one can provide any solid evidence of their claims. Although, my favorite rumor is The Riddler (Edward Nigma) played by Johnny Depp. Heres hoping!
I have a feeling we may find out more real soon. Ill keep you posted.
What are you hoping for?
