Though it has been generally assumed that Christopher Nolan would be returning to helm a third “Batman” feature, no official announcements have been made as such.
Nolan has reassured everyone though he’s onboard as Empire recently asked if we could safely assume he would direct. He responded “I think you can at this point, yes… “it’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way… I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it.”
Meanwhile Michael Caine revealed on BBC Radio this week that shooting on the project will probably kick off around May. Asked about the villain, Caine said no-one apart from Chris Nolan and his brother Jonah know which of Batman’s Rogues Gallery will serve as the chief antagonist in the next outing.
