Apparently, all the rumors surfacing around "Batman 3" hold no truth in them. Addressing the so-called scoops about "The Dark Knight" sequel to MTV News, scribbler David S. Goyer completely rejected the speculations that director Christopher Nolan has been signed on, that the pre-production will start early 2009, and that the possible casting include Johnny Depp and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Throwing cold water to the flaming fire, the "Blade Trinity" director stated that they are all merely rumors stating, "It's all B.S. ALL of it." In fact, he insisted that no official talk has been done between him and Nolan about the future film plan for Batman. "Chris and I haven't even talked about it. He quite understandably is taking a long, long vacation and wants to purge himself," he explained.
Still, he also confessed that they have loosely discussed themes and ideas. "We have mused here and there [but] I mean Chris is pretty much a one movie at a time kind of guy," he said. "I wish I could tell you more. There really isn't anything to tell." Lifting a bit of hope amidst the rumors denial, Goyer promised, "If and when [Chris is] ready to talk - we'll talk."
Speculations over "Batman 3" which is said to be tentatively entitled "The Caped Crusade" has grown since "Dark Knight" displayed its amazing run at the box office back in July. Up to date the sequel to "Batman Begins" which reportedly made with a budget of $185 million have grossed around $988 million worldwide and has become the second highest selling movie of all time following James Cameron's 1997 "Titanic".
