Film Director Chris Nolan May Not Direct Another Batman Flick
LOS ANGELES, CA (RUSHPRNEWS) AUGUST 28, 2008–All the buzz about Batman is that now that Dark Knight is out, the fans want another. Gimmee more!Legions of fanboys are praising Nolan for his vision on this franchise and the cast he chose brought us a winner. So the logical assumption is that he would do it again. But nothing is set in stone here.
Comingsoon catches us up on what’s going on there: And Warners and Legendary are both interested in doing a third in the series, but all involved say it will be up to Nolan to come to them with a story and a plan.
“There are a lot of us who emotionally would love to do it,” Roven says. “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.”
For now, Nolan is taking a well-earned vacation.
Says Roven, “When he comes back, we will see how he feels.”
Frankly I would love to be in Nolan’s shoes right now.
Partly because he is on vacation, and likely somewhere very luxurious and warm, and those shoes might be some comfy sandals. But mostly because he is sitting on top of the world. He just hit it out of the park AGAIN with Batman, and the fans are all just salavating to see what he brings us next.
But no one said he had to. He isn’t signed to anything. He hasn’t decided on anything. There is no story, no villains, no direction. Nothing.
Nolan hasn’t put one word to page on this. Because this is his method, but also because it’s not his job. Yet.
The entire Batman loving fans are all just waiting on his nod like the dedicated masses waiting for the word of God to fall from the mouth of his prophet.
So while everyone is speculating on the next movie, its all just rumour.
If Nolan comes back from his vacation of swimming in money and getting a tan from the bright lights of his adoring fans and says, “I am done doing Batman films” then there will be a scramble.
I just hope that if Nolan doesn’t do it that they don’t follow the Batman Curse. Two good movies, followed by two horrendous movies that killed all superhero franchises for close to a decade. Schumacher need not apply.
As long as it stays true to Nolan’s feel for the first two, any director worth his name would be fine.
