    Christopher Nolan has officially released the title of the 3rd movie in his Batman trilogy. It will be entitled "The Dark Knight Rises" and will NOT be in 3-D. :bowdown:
    Personally, I'm so thankful that it isn't in 3-D. The whole 3-D rage lately, is not my thing.

    But I figure I would start a thread about this movie, where people can post updates about the movie. So where are you Nolan freaks? :lol:

    You also forgot the big mention that Riddler WON'T be the villain ;)

    I read this the other day. I think the title could have been a little better, but I'm still looking forward to it. Something like 'Batman Rises' would have been better, imo.

    Sweet, and Tom Hardy looks like he's going to be in it too. He's a great actor so thats good news.

    I wonder who the villain will be. Hush or Freeze would be pretty cool.

    Nolan has said that there would be no Mr. Freeze nor Penguin.

    I think that anything at this point is pure speculation, but I think Hush would be interesting as a villain in this series.

    I highly doubt that Nolan would include Killer Croc in the film. These films have been very successful shunning the supernatural, and a half-man-half-lizard just doesn't jive with the premise. Same goes for Mr. Freeze...I really don't see it being the best choice for this style of film.

    I would laugh pretty hard, and then cry if the choice ended up being Ventriliquist or Clock King.

    Killer Croc could be done in the same vein as Reptile in the Mortal Kombat trailer, shame about Freeze. :/

    If done right (which I completely trust Nolan to do) I could see the Mad Hatter working well as a villain in this one.

    In terms of putting butts in the seats though, having confirmed there's no Riddler, Penguin, or Freeze, my next guess is Catwoman. *sigh*

    The trouble with Catwoman is that it's been done. Again and again...

    But I can totally see that being a possibility. If WB insists that the movie be 3-D and Nolan refuses, he'll probably have to make a concession about the characters, so maybe there will be a Catwoman or ...

    Well, the most well-known are Joker, Catwoman, Riddler, and Penguin, and if Nolan says there will be no Joker, Riddler, or Penguin (or Mr. Freeze) and we don't expect Two Face to return, that really only leaves one well-known, which at least begs the question.

    Maybe have Harley Quinn doing some of Joker's work, and possibly Bane?

    Gotta say, gonna need more info before I'm sold on the title. I trust Christopher Nolan, but the name just doesn't roll off the tongue.

    I'm quite surprised though that they decided not to go with The Riddler as the villain, as he would have seemingly been the villain that would fit best into Nolan's interpretation of the Batman universe. Without him, there are only a limited set of options...




    That is, unless Nolan decides to create an original villain...

    :spock:

    Clayface would be a cool one, but if we're sticking with realistic possibilities then it's not likely :( Doubtful they'd bring back Scarecrow as a legit villain instead of a supporting character like he's been, but it's plausible.

    Imagine if they did Red Hood!

    That would be difficult. The Red Hood's 2 main identities, The Joker and Jason Todd, aren't doable in Nolan's bat-verse. The Joker, for obvious reasons, and Jason Todd, because he was not only the second Robin (which is a character Nolan swore he never used), but also because he was killed by the Joker (hasn't happened, and can't happen in the current bat-verse), only to be ressurrected by Rha's al Ghul, who is also quite dead in the current bat-verse.

    However, speaking of characters who's names are references to colored facial apparel, Black Mask would be a good choice. Not only does his character fit well into Nolan's Mob-centric storyline, but he also has a history that is tied closely to the Wayne family, as well as a life that mirrors Bruce Wayne's (Black Mask INTENTIONALLY burned down his parents' mansion, for example).

    Also, no super powers.

    Exactly, I know a Red Hood wouldn't be possible due to what's been mentioned, as well as Nolan would probably receive HUGE backlash for doing someone that would turn into the Joker and move in on Ledger's territory.

    Black Mask could work, as well as using Dr. Hugo Strange
