Christopher Nolan has finally given a small update on Batman 3.  While attending a press conference for Inception in Italy, the director was asked if Warner Bros. had officially greenlit the upcoming sequel and if he could provide an update on the project.  The director said that his brother, Jonah Nolan, has finished a draft of the script and that he is now working on the screenplay himself.  Hit the jump to read the full quote and to see Nolan talk about Batman 3 and his inspirations for Inception.

When asked about Batman 3, the director said:

“I don’t like to talk too much about things until I’m further along with them.  But I’m working on the script right now.  My brother Jonah has done a draft for the script and now I’m writing on it.  We have set a release date and as far as the film being officially greenlit, they haven’t told they don’t want to do it. So I’m hopeful.”

A big thanks goes out to Nolan Fans for finding this video.  I’ve included the full press conference, but if you just want to see Nolan talk about Batman 3, then fast forward to the one minute mark.

    LOL. Yeah, I think Warners will give it the go head. Call it a hunch.

    Having been a fan of Christopher Nolan’s since his first debut with FOLLOWING, it can truly be said that this man is quite the storyteller. The work he puts out there captures you in a unique and intriguing way. I mean, I don’t know the last time I was so emotionally gripped and in awe after seeing the film INCEPTION. And as far as BATMAN 3, who the hell wouldn’t want to green light this project? Come on now. Seriously… Keep working on that killer script Mr. Nolan. Can’t wait!

    Glad his brother Jonathan is writing the main story, won’t be a final disappointment like TDK.

    I thought the ending of The Dark Knight was really stupid. If they had to pin the murders on someone why not the Joker. For that matter Batman should have killed the Joker, as now, every murder the Joker commits is on Batman’s conscience. And karmically Batman is responsible for now.

    • Pamela Isley

      Um, Gandalf, Batman doesn’t kill, and, if you recall, Batman killing the Joker would be seen as a ‘victory’ for the Joker.

    • Borjan

      They could’t pin them on the Joker because he was hiding out in the building, with his hostages. Yeah, they could have tried to pin it on his lackies, but it would not take with public opinion. Also, consider WHICH murders these were – corrupt cops on the mob’s payroll. The Joker would NOT have potential allies/chaos-bringers killed so straight up – it was simply a side-effect of corrupting Harvey, but it did its job. So Batman HAD to take the blame – in the end, becoming a wanted vigilante and, at the same time, preserving Harvey’s image as a hero (and all the good that came with it).

      Also note – Batman making it look like he was ready to kill also made him MORE TERRIFYING to crooks. Near the start, it’s mentioned that crims aren’t really afraid of him anymore because they’ve cottoned on to his reluctance to kill – even if they’re caught, that’s not as bad so long as they aren’t earning the death penalty. By taking the fall, he’s put the fear of God BACK INTO THEM.

      One more thing: yes, Batman is karmically responsible for those deaths – and he KNOWS it! But Batman does not kill – not because they don’t deserve it, because they do, but because killing is what, in his mind, separates him from his enemies. Or have you forgotten ‘Batman Begins’ – Ra’s Al Ghul will kill anyone if necessary. And once you start with crims, you then start to consider even normal people a statistic if it means preserving order. Batman won’t kill because he’ll either become as bad as his enemies (eliminating anyone who opposes their worldview), or he’ll become no better than a glorified vigilante.

      well i hate when filmmakers kill iconic villains. it’s short sighted, but yeah the end was a bit much, but that’s nolan’s Achilles heal. his endings are always to drawn out and over the top. other than that he’s great imo.

      also, no offence but that shows that you really don’t know much about the character of bruce wayne. he doesn’t kill. that’s the only thing separating him from the scum. he and supes make the justice league apply to the same rule.

      Batman WANTED to be held responsible for them. Bats had developed the reputation for his not killing rule which hamstrung him with opponents like Joker who tested that rule by terrorizing others and Scarecrow who was less than fearful of him. By taking responsibility for the deaths, he destroys that expectation, giving him a measure of unpredictability with opponents. Also, remember the discussion between Dent and Wayne in the restaurant about how Ancient Romans would grant unlimited power to a single citizen to guide them through a crisis, but when that crisis passed, if the citizen hadn’t been killed (in which case he is celebrated as a hero), he would be vilified (usually for not relinquishing the power). Here of the two ‘guardians’ during the Joker crisis, the reputation of the ‘white knight’ (as Wayne called him…) is cemented when he dies during the crisis, the other who lives on and becomes the dark knight/the villain. [This sets up a good possible conflict for part 3: the presumed villain/actual protector versus some self-proclaimed bright light 'hero'/actual villain-mob boss-whatever who's scammed his way into gaining the City's trust.]

      Gandalf, Batman as the character would never pin a murder on a criminal to simply tie up a ‘loose end’, nor does he ever deliberately kill his enemies. That isn’t what the character is about. Even if Nolan does another two Batman films, which I hope he does after Dark Knight, I can’t see the Joker being brought back. Nolan has said as much that he intends to respect Heath Ledger’s amazing performance and passing away by not reintroducing the Joker. That will be up to another director/producer to reintroduce the character, if the franchise changes hands at some point.
