“I think that’s the scariest thing – to think, could we come up with a third movie that was as good as the first two? Can we top ourselves? Doing it a third time would be a big proposition. We’ve only talked loosely about it, though, Chris and I.”
“I have [a theme and villain]. But I’m not going to tell you. Chris is very particular about that.”
“I do think, though, that if there’s not a third film – these two movies stand on their own. I think it could go either way.”
Well, at least we know they’re talking it over. With the aftermath of events from TDK, we were left with a final note from Commissioner Gordon:
He’s the hero that Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So We’ll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he’s not a hero. He’s a silent guardian…a watchful protector…a Dark Knight.
Based on this, I’d have to speculate the theme for “Batman 3” would lie somewhere along the lines of redemption, or perhaps sustenance. A film almost always needs to have a love interest and who better to top off the late character of Rachel Dawes than Selina Kyle aka Catwoman? As for the villain, I think to many of us it still remains a complete Mister E……
