Christopher Nolan Dishes On Why He Won't Make Fourth Batman Film


Insisting that he wouldn't direct more Caped Crusader movie after 'The Dark Knight Rises', Nolan claims, 'I don't want to hold anything back.'

For the umpteenth time, Christopher Nolan claimed that he would not make more Batman film after "The Dark Knight Rises". While attending the Producers Guild of America's "Produced By" conference at Sony Studios on Saturday, June 9, Nolan explained why he refused to create the fourth Caped Crusader film and opened up about how he built the film series.

"No. I don't want to hold anything back," Nolan stated, as quoted by Variety. The English filmmaker, who was accompanied by his wife Emma Thomas, went on insisting that he always envisioned the Batman tale as a trilogy, resulting in "Batman Begins", "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises".

On developing the story, Nolan credited Richard Donner's "Superman" as his major inspiration rather than the DC comics stories. "I explained the potential of what was exciting to me," he explained. "There really had not been an origin story about this extraordinary figure in an ordinary world." He also thanked fanboys for guiding him to pitch the plot. "You're really working with something that belongs to the audience," he said.

Nolan, who wrote the trilogy's script along with his brother Jonathan Nolan, gushed that he just wanted to make each of his Batman films as good as he could. "I said to my brother I don't want to save anything," he said, as quoted by The Hollywood Reporter. The 41-year-old director added that he wanted Batman in his films to be as grounded as possible. "The challenge with Batman is to find what is a believable character," he said. "You put your stamp on it."

Nolan's third and final Batman film, "The Dark Knight Rises", will arrive in cinemas across the U.S. on July 20. It will bring back Christian Bale as the lead superhero, while Tom Hardy is set to portray major villain Bane.
