Yes, I know, the Batmobile was wrecked in TDK, but they’ll probably build him a new one for the latest film. Anyway, I suppose this doesn’t qualify as a huge shock, given that Christopher Nolan seems to have always had no more than a three film arc in mind when he first breathed new (and desperately needed) life into the Batman saga. Bale has confirmed that:-

“unless Chris (Nolan) says different, this will be the last time I’m playing Batman. Until Chris tells me, I don’t believe it. It’s gotta be from his mouth, or else I don’t really know.”
While promoting The Fighter Bale also told MTV that he knew very little about the plot for The Dark Knight Rises, which makes sense given that none of the cast will apparently see the script until the new year:-

‘Chris will let me know what I need to know when I need to know it. I probably know a little bit more than some other people out there, but I think most people would be surprised at how little I do know. It just hasn’t been necessary yet. I know he’ll give me plenty of time to prepare for whatever I need to, and I’ll discover it. He’s a pretty damn good filmmaker. I trust that he’s going to come up with something wonderful.

Yes indeed, Nolan is a pretty good filmmaker, although clearly also one who plays his cards pretty close to his chest. What are Warner Bros or any of the cast going to say though? After the critical acclaim and commercial success of Memento, Batman Begins, The Prestige, TDK and Inception it seems that all concerned are happy to trust Nolan completely. Well they should.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.

    Let’s start a Chris Nolan Batman4 Campaign
    O.k. so I was thinking that we as fans of the Chris Nolan Batman franchise do not want to see another interpretation of Bruce Wayne unless he’s much older(TDKR). No, so I was thinking lets start a campaign to show our love and support for Chris Nolan and what he is doing for the Batman franchise expressing our interest in keeping Chris Nolan, his brother and David S. Goyer on Batman films at least the next ones to come after The Dark Knight Rises.I was thinking a T-Shirt Campaign and a petition maybe on facebook.
