Nolan No-Go For Batman 3?

August 20, 2008 at 7:59 pm Leave a comment

According to the clip below, there may be some doubt that Nolan might not do a third Batman. His contract is apparently for 3 Batman movies, but that doesn’t mean 3 consecutive movies. Someone else may step in at some point (which will most likely happen) and direct a Batman movie, and it’s possible Nolan won’t do Batman 3.

Possible, but not likely. Christopher Nolan knows that, among comic book geeks, he is revered. Nolan is credited with single-handedly saving a stagnant franchise and elevating the comic book movie from summer popcorn fluff to a work of art (though I’m sure there are some who will argue that point). Point is, the fans, and probably the critics, too, will be upset if he doesn’t do the third Batman movie. Not just a third, but the next one in the series.

I do think that Nolan should take some time off and do some other work just to refresh his creative batteries. The Prestige was a very different movie from Batman Begins, and maybe that time away from comic book material was what he needed before he took on The Dark Knight. That’s probably something Sam Raimi should have done before turning out the decent, albeit lackluster Spider-man 3

August 18, 2008The Dark Knight soared past the first Star Wars movie this weekend to become the second highest-grossing domestic release of all time just behind Titanic. With over $470 million now in their coffers, Warner Bros. is understandably eager to make sure that filmmaker Christopher Nolan, the director of TDK and Batman Begins, returns to helm the third installment in their revitalized Bat-franchise.

So far there had been little hard news about Batman 3 (but plenty of unfounded casting gossip about who might play the villains in the next sequel). Until now.

According to Variety, “There’s a deal for the director to helm a third pic, but he has yet to decide on whether to tackle it yet.” Warner Bros. studio boss Alan Horn told the trade, “We have no idea where Chris is going with this. … We haven’t had any conversations with him about it.”
