With the most ludicrous of rumors racing across entertainment news sites across the net, it is surely evident that Batman fans…quite possibly the world is on a hunger strike that has lasted for T minus July 18th days. Perhaps this widespread crisis is due to the fact that little to no news has come about on whether the Zeus of all “directing-dom”, King Christopher Nolan has plans to make fanboys flood their pants for a third time by concocting another nirvana of a Batman masterpiece. Well, the news is, Mr. Nolan is currently on well-deserved vacation (if I knew where, I assure you I’d be knocking on his hotel room and persuading him right now) and won’t be back for quite some time. However, we have received some ray of light from producer, Charles Roven. Here’s what he had to say:
And Warners and Legendary are both interested in doing a third in the series, but all involved say it will be up to Nolan to come to them with a story and a plan.
“There are a lot of us who emotionally would love to do it,” Roven says. “But it’s really Chris’ call. Chris is the kind of filmmaker who just doesn’t think about the next movie before he has completely finished the movie he is working on.”
For now, Nolan is taking a well-earned vacation.
Says Roven, “When he comes back, we will see how he feels.”
So Mr. Nolan, I humbly ask you, please don’t pull another “Prestige” on us. I’d really prefer not to be married already, cleaning up mine and my own kid’s saliva while staring up at a movie screen in total bliss at “Batman 3” for the fifteenth time. Let’s see one more! We will build golden altars across the world and offer animal sacrifices to the temple of Nolanism that will explode onto the world when they see a blinding light that makes the glorious luminescence that was “The Dark Knight” seem like pitch black.
PS To all gullible fans out there, if you want Cher to play Catwoman, Nolan will not hesitate to cast Cher as Catwoman as punishment for your ravenous curiosity and utter lack of patience. What can I say? Curiosity will kill the cat. Mwahahaha!
