Batman 3 to film in March 2011

Christopher Nolan will begin filming the next Batman movie in March 2011.

Los Angeles Times reporter Geoff Bucher revealed that he would be probing the Inception director about the follow-up to 2008’s The Dark Knight at the Hero Complex Film Festival this weekend, and seemingly confirmed when shooting on the much-anticipated sequel would commence.

Wriging on his blog, Butcher noted: “The future looks fascinating for this 39-year-old auteur, and I plan to ask him about the third Batman film, which starts shooting in March.”

Warner Brothers recently announced that the third instalment of Nolan’s Batman franchise will be released on July 20, 2012, almost four years after The Dark Knight broke box office records.
