In a new interview over at Hero Complex, Christopher Nolan reveals that the title of the next Batman film will be 'The Dark Knight Rises', alluding to the film being about Batman returning to his heroic roots after fleeing Gotham as a wanted man at the end of 'The Dark Knight'.
Furthermore, Nolan ruled out the Riddler as being the main villain in the third installment, simply stating that "it won't be the Riddler." Another revelation to come from HC's interview with the elusive director is that Warner Bros. has agreed to not go the 3D route with ''The Dark Knight Rises', and instead will allow Nolan to do what he did with 'The Dark Knight' and balance both high-definition and IMAX cameras to help deliver a power punch up on the big screen.
"We'll use many of the same characters as we have all along, and we'll be introducing some new ones," Nolan said, without revealing any names. However, while he may not be saying much, we can start with a process of elimination. So far we know it's not Riddler or Mr. Freeze, so considering The Dark Knight's title was just as much about Harvey Dent as it was about Batman, where do you think Nolan will go with 'The Dark Knight Rises'?
