Big news for Batman fans: Christopher Nolan has confirmed the title for the third Batman movie…
The director’s follow-up to 2008’s The Dark Knight will be called…The Dark Knight Rises.
Nolan told The Los Angeles Times that the third outing will again feature Christian Bale as the titular hero, but rubbished reports that the Riddler would be resurrected for the flick.
He added that the film will feature “many of the same characters” fans are familiar with, but “it won’t be the Riddler,” he explained.
“We’ll use many of the same characters as we have all along, and we’ll be introducing some new ones.”
The Dark Knight Rises will be released in 2012.
