We hope Chris Nolan changes his mind! At this point, he says he’s not sure about making Batman 3. When LA Times’ Geoff Boucher asked the director about the possibility of a third installment happening, here’s what he sad to say:
“Well … let me think how to put this. There are two things to be said. One is the emphasis on story. What’s the story? Is there a story that’s going to keep me emotionally invested for the couple of years that it will take to make another one? That’s the overriding question. On a more superficial level, I have to ask the question: How many good third movies in a franchise can people name? At the same time, in taking on the second one, we had the challenge of trying to make a great second movie, and there haven’t been too many of those either. It’s all about the story really. If the story is there, everything is possible. I hope that was a suitably slippery answer.”
Yes, that was quite slippery. We hope he’s just being ambiguous. We need Johnny Depp as the Riddler!
