UPDATED: Nobody Knows Any Dark Knight News? I Call BS!!!
This months report of 'People that were involved in making 'The Dark Knight' that have no knowledge of a sequel' news is getting deep. My prediction is that soon everyone involved making 'The Dark Knight' will sooner or later step forth and say they have no knowledge of a 'Batman 3.'
PLUS: CorndogBuglar brings up the very excellent question: "Should The Joker and Robin be in the third Nolan Batman Film?"
Come On Man!
And why not. Everyone and there momma has come forth to say 'When it comes to Nolan's Batman, I have no idea if there will be a third installment or not?"
The latest of these types of statements comes from Hans Zimmer, Nolan's film composer for 'Batman Begins' and 'TDK'.
"I don't know if there's a Batman 3 or not. I really don't," he responded to IGN.com. "When Chris tells me a paragraph of a story...at that moment the synapses will start firing. It's as simple as that."
Ah Ha!!! So you know but you don't know eh? Let's clear this up. Nolan's 'The Dark Knight' made more money then any other comic book movie in History. I know, for some of you news like that is hard to swallow, for others probably not. But that being as it may, Warner Brothers is going to make a 'Batman 3' with or with out Nolan. My guess is that Nolan will start dropping hints the closer 'Inception' gets to its theatrical release.
Who would turn down a chance to do something your really good at and make a gazillion dollars (Batman Begins, TDK) and then go on to do what you want to for a year or two (Inception, The Prestige) only to be welcomed back by the franchise that is footing the bill? Crazy people in Hollywood that's who. But Nolan's not that crazy to walk out of the Batman franchise. At least not yet.
So believe what you want but I guarantee you that we will have another Batman movie in theaters by the year 2012 or 2013, with or with out Nolan. Let's just hope they don't scrap the successful currant Bat franchise and put him back in school or '90210' it to death. Cough, Cough, ahem, ahem, sorry Spidey!
I just received an exclussive tip from an inside source:
"A friend of mine works for a video game developer in the Seattle area, and he's already got concept art, character sheets and the storyline for the Batman Video game based on the 3rd movie. Development on this game has been underway for a few months. Dunno if that helps you or anything but there you go."
Nothing concrete but what is concrete about Batman movie news these days?
See, I told ya!!!
