Over in an interview with The LA Times’ Hero Complex column, Christopher Nolan revealed that the next Batman flick is titled THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Not a bad title, but I think it’s kind of a shame; I was hoping the next film would get another comics savvy title, Shadow of the Bat.
Nolan also stated that The Riddler won’t be the villain, and several characters from the previous two films would be making appearances to complete his trilogy, which is likely to be all Nolan will do Bat-flick wise. He’s also crossed off Mr. Freeze but with a title including the word “Rise”, could a Ra’s al Ghul return be in the future?
