Chris Nolan Finally Confirms He's Directing the Third Batman
Big deal, we all knew this already, right? I mean come on, who out there actually thought that Christopher Nolan wouldn't return to direct the final Batman movie? There's just no way that would happen. But of course, both Warner Bros and Nolan have been playing coy. Neither would admit that he was signed on to direct and nothing was official, but that wall has finally been torn down. Nolan spoke to Empire recently and admitted: "It's becoming inevitable, I'll put it that way." Wait - does that mean he's totally, completely 100% confirmed? Can we say he's directing? "I think you can at this point, yes." No more questions - there you go!
"I feel myself falling into it, I guess," Nolan adds. "And getting it all figured out and I'm pretty excited about what we're doing so… If I haven't announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I'm doing it."
So the guy who dreamt up the world of Inception and The Dark Knight is excited for what they have in store for the third Batman? Holy shit this movie is going to be amazing. Although there's rumors and quotes and claims about a start date next year floating around on the web, I'm not going to mention that simply because it's safer to say that we don't know when it will start, nor does anyone at Warner Bros. Nolan is still working on the script and is also working on the Superman reboot, so we'll leave him be and let him get this together on his own. Whenever he figures out a start date and Warner Bros announces it, that's when we'll bring you the news. At the very least, we're safe knowing this grand finale won't end up in anyone's hands but Nolan's.
