Batman 3 Gets Titled and News on The Riddler

Posted October 27th, 2010 at 8:10 am

Christopher Nolan has finally released some details on his next Batman chapter. The film will be called The Dark Knight Rises, and he also revealed the villain would not be ‘The Riddler.’ It comes somewhat as a surprise when you consider the rumors swirling around the character being played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt have been going on for a while now. But this won’t be the case.

Nolan was most eager to talk about the fact that Warner Bros. had agreed with his argument that the film should resist the current 3-D craze and instead use high-definition approaches and IMAX cameras to strike out on a different cinematic path than the stereoscopic technology that, for better or worse, has become the dominant conversation in the blockbuster sector.

I’m really glad to hear he won’t be going the 3-D route with this film. As I said yesterday, I feel 3-D has already been overused. I do like that he will stick with the IMAX cameras though. I loved see The Dark Knight at the IMAX and felt the camera shots really added a new element to the film. At this point I’m not sure who the villain will be in the next film. There are rumors out there that it will be ‘Killer Croc’, but as we’ve seen with ‘The Riddler rumor, it’s all hearsay until Nolan officially says something.
