Legit Batman 3 Update From David Goyer
We can keep pretending that the rumors about the third installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman series are holding us over, but let’s just be honest with ourselves; we’re aching for real news. Not pseudo announcements from Michael Caine. Not tired casting rumors about Angelina Jolie and Miley Cyrus. Not conspiracy theories about how David Goyer and Nolan are halfway done with a script. Those are just nasty potato chips holding us over for a real meal.
Well, MTV has the closest we’ve gotten to steak and potatoes from the most credible source possible: David Goyer. When asked about the status of a new Batman movie, Goyer stated that, “Right now, Chris is involved in filming Inception.” He continued, “When he finishes that, he will turn his studious gaze back to the Bat universe and we'll see.”
Based on the evidence that’s been handed to us (Nolan’s work ethic on previous films, how long it took to get The Dark Knight after Batman Begins), this seems like the most believable news possible. Unlike dudes like Michael Bay who start work on a sequel to a blockbuster before the first movie is even released, Nolan is the kind of director who needs time to distance himself from a project. This benefits us as viewers because it gives Nolan enough time to figure out exactly what to do with a sequel. Imagine something better than The Dark Knight. Yeah I know. My head just blew up too.
