Recent words coming from the possible follow-up of "Batman" movie stated that everything about "Batman 3" depends on director Christopher Nolan. Hence, though Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are keen to move on, they have to wait for Nolan's decision, especially since he has yet to sign in for this next Batman project.
In the recent Hollywood Reporter article discussing in details about "The Dark Knight", that fact is exposed through producer Chuck Roven's remarks. "There are a lot of us who emotionally would love to do it," Roven confessed. "But it's really Chris' call. Chris is the kind of filmmaker who just doesn't think about the next movie before he has completely finished the movie he is working on."
Furthermore, noting that Nolan is taking a vacation, he stated that everything concerning the third movie of the series that was begun with "Batman Begins" will be unraveled following Nolan's return. "When he comes back, we will see how he feels," explained the film producer.
Following the massive success of "Dark Knight" on retaining the second slot of highest grossing movie of all time with $490.6 million nationwide, speculations about the possible sequel has been streaming in, especially from the possible casting of the villains. Earlier, it has been rumored that singer Cher has been considered to be depicting Catwoman, while Johnny Depp is eyed to be The Riddler.
