No “Dark Knight” Follow-Up Just Yet

During “The Book of Eli” panel yesterday at the San Diego Comic Con, a fan asked Gary Oldman about the status of a potential third “Batman” film with Christopher Nolan at the helm.

A nervous Oldman gave the surprising response that it’ll begin filming next year prompting a wave of articles from the geek community that the news was set and locked.

It ain’t that clear though as in press interviews with iF Magazine a few hours later, Oldman was asked about what he said and he responded “Someone asked me [about the third BATMAN film] and I said, ‘I don’t know, next year? Two years away? It could be three years away.'”
