There were also rumors initially that the movie will be shot in 3D, but Nolan wants to avoid it.

He says that ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ will employ "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."

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is scheduled to be released on July 20, 2012.
