Default SPOILERS Batman 3 - "The Dark Knight Rises"

I tried searching for an existing thread, but I guess there wasn't one made.

Chris Nolan confirms the third movie.

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/hero...c-story-1.html

And that third Batman film? Jonathan Nolan is “now doing the hard work” of writing the script based on the story by his sibling and Goyer. “My brother is writing a script for me and we’ll wait to see how it turns out.... He’s struggling to put it together into the epic story that you want it to be.”

Me too. Bring in Talia as well for a cat/mouse villian/love interest thing...maybe use the Lazurus pits to bring back two face as a villian?

With Nolan's direction, I don't think we'd see the pit.

Thats true, the pits don't fit the gritty/realistic feel.

I'd imagine if there is any kind of throw back to Ra's it would be through Talia. But I was thinking it would have to be someone who melds the worlds of freaks (Joker/Two-Face) and mobsters(Falcone/Maroni). The only characters I can imagine fitting into those are Penguin, Scarface, and Black Mask. Nolan's utilized a mastermind and secondary villain in both movies with Ra's and Joker backed up by Scarecrow and Two-Face.

Personally I hope it does end up being Talia and Black Mask.

I could very much see them using Firefly, though he is not a well-known villain to the general public.

Eh, after the horrible ending to Dark Knight it would take something very drastic for me to care about another Batman movie by Nolan.

Thank you! Can no filmmaker get Two Face right?! On a related note, I am more than a little worried over what could be Nolan's take on Superman.

The Nolan brothers confirmed to be working on Batman 3: best movie news I've heard in a while. I can't wait!
 
Superman Returns was a great film. DO NOT REBOOT!

I can't wait.

The Dark Knight was such a good movie, but I'd love to see them try to top it. Hell, I thought Batman Begins would be hard to top but they definitely succeeded there.

I'm not sure why some people above don't like the ending. Without derailing this too much I thought that it was an excellent "next step" for all the characters, especially Batman.

I imagine they'd want to use Catwoman, since she can fill both the villain and love interest role. Combine her with Black Mask or another street level-esque villain, and you've got your movie.

I'd love to see Catwoman in it. Unfortunately, I think Halle Berry has poisoned that well for awhile.

A couple years ago I would have agreed, but I think its been long enough that the casual movie going public has either forgotten, or just doesn't care about that anymore.


Me, I say go with Croc, and maybe either Riddler or Penguin for name recognition.

Mm. The very existence of the current film series speaks to Nolan's ability to take a poisoned movie franchise and make it potable.

Unlikely as it might be from a realistic standpoint, I would personally be inclined towards including Catwoman or Talia or someone like that if for no other reason than...well...how do I put this...they need a girl. They blew up their only featured female character. They need to get someone to fill that void capably, or the next movie risks some sort of freakish testosterone explosion.
