'Batman 3' to Be Shot in IMAX?

Christopher Nolan might have something big in store for us for ‘Batman 3.’ Director of photography Wally Pfister reveals that they are working on shooting ‘Batman 3’ in Imax. Say it with us…that’s awesome!

"I can't say until I read the script, but it would certainly be my preferred, amazing goal to shoot the whole movie in IMAX," Pfister told MTV News.

Pfister reveals that he is currently waiting for the script in order to figure out which direction to take the threequel in.

"I must say I'm a huge IMAX fan. I like IMAX more than I like 3-D," he explained. "Chris' films are so densely layered and have so much going on visually in every way that IMAX helps enhance that because of the scope and the scale of it — it becomes a much larger canvas to paint on. That's what we found on 'Dark Knight.'

Both Nolan and Pfister are not fans of 3-D so chances are they are going to try to avoid it.

Pfister worked with Nolan on ‘Inception’ and he’s waiting for the talks with Nolan to start regarding ‘Batman 3.’

"We usually have lunch and he asks me, 'Tell me what your thoughts are,' " Pfister said. "It's very casual. It's not very technical. And then we start to build toward, 'How are we going to shoot this? Where are we going to shoot this?' My preproduction is about four months long before principal photography begins.

"I can't imagine how we're going to step it up [after 'Inception']," he added. "But we will."

‘Inception’ is one heck of a movie, but we’re sure if anyone is gonna step it up it’s gonna be Nolan and Pfister.
