The third film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise will be titled, The Dark Knight Rises. Nolan told Hero Complex, “Our ambition for the third movie is to complete a story that has begun. This is not starting over. This is not rebooting. We’re finishing something and keeping a consistency with what’s come before has real value.” Nolan also said that the villain will not be The Riddler, which comes as a disappointment to The Whore. Maybe there’s still hope for Catwoman.
The Dark Knight Rises will be released in theaters July 20, 2012.
