'Batman Begins' grossed over $372 million worldwide, but was no match to its successor, which took in an astounding $1 billion at the global box office and, later, two Academy Awards, including one for the late Heath Ledger.

Nolan is keeping mum on further details, but he did say that the new 'Superman' will be a complete reboot and will have no connection to Bryan Singer's 'Superman Returns' or Richard Donner's 'Superman.'

As for a third 'Batman' film, details are still sketchy, but Nolan said his brother and frequent collaborator, Jonathan Nolan, is writing the script based on a story they developed.

One thing's for sure: It doesn't take supersonic hearing to know that fans everywhere are squealing with delight.
