‘The Dark Knight Rises’: Christopher Nolan gives a name to Batman 3; rules out The Riddler

28 Oct

For the first time since The Dark Knight hit theaters and began the buzz circulating around how Christopher Nolan was going to end his Batman trilogy, we finally get a break and hear the normally tight-lipped director open up (just a little) with details surrounding the film. In a conversation with the LA Times fanboy blog Hero Complex, Nolan gave us the title of the film, The Dark Knight Rises, and in even bigger news, let slip that the next villain would not be The Riddler, as many blogs had been speculating.    

With this breaking news, talk of who the next Batman villain would be scorched up the trending charts, and knowing that Nolan cast Tom Hardy, his Inception star, in a major role, speculation has been in overdrive over the past day. We are still sticking with our pick that Deadshot will be your next Batman villain, even more so now when we think about how well the British Hardy could pull off the dapper assassin. Rumors are swirling that he may be taking on the role of “Det. Harvey Bullock,” but as we now know, any rumors surrounding the ultra secretive Nolan, until confirmed, will always be just that – rumors.

Other news that Nolan dished out was that he would once again shoot in IMAX, rather than jump on the 3D bandwagon (thank God!), but we expected such a move from this classy director. Sorry to James Cameron, but 3D seems to be a gimmick only good for kid movies and schlock; Nolan’s Batman is a bit more high-brow than that. Expect to see more news trickle out as the Batman frenzy hits a fever-pitch.
