Batman 3 titled THE DARK KNIGHT RISES October 27, 2010 Riddle me this… what happened to The Riddler? Christopher Nolan today confirmed the official name of BATMAN 3, speaking to Hero Complex the director revealed the next installment in the Batman franchise will be THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. He also gave some small plot details “It won’t be the Riddler,” Nolan said of the third film’s villain, killing off all speculation to the contrary. (Can we stop those Johnny Depp rumours now?). He also revealed, “We’ll use many of the same characters as we have all along, and we’ll be introducing some new ones.”. Nolan also took the opportunity to confirm that the movie will not be in 3D but will be filmed in IMAX (unfortunately, that’s no use to us here with no Irish IMAX cinema). So now that the Riddler is out, and Nolan already eliminated Mr Freeze from the line-up in a previous interview, what Batman villain would you like to see in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES?
