Rumor has it that the Batman 3 rumors will finally come to an end early next year. (Disregard the irony.) At least, that’s the word from a “solid” and “longtime” source of Batman-On-Film. Here are the details.
Thereâ€™s some scuttlebutt that in early 2010, Warner Bros. and Chris Nolan will finalize the plan for BATMAN 3, according to a solid and longtime BOF source. Whether there will be an announcement or not remains to be seen.
Our guy told BOF that in his opinion, the longer we donâ€™t here a Nolan/B3 announcement in 2010, the less likely it is that the director will return. (I donâ€™t know if I necessarily agree with that since Iâ€™m of the belief that Chris has already signed on.)
We also have to consider that Christopher Nolan‘s Inception is wrapping production in about two weeks. Is Warner Bros. going to announce a third Batman film before, during, or after the (hopefully awesome) marketing campaign for Inception?
Regardless, our source also confirmed the obvious — thereâ€™s going to be a BATMAN 3 with or without Nolan. And although theyâ€™re operating under the assumption that he will return, they do have their ducks in a row — just in case.
Remember this is only a rumor. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed and hope that this torture will end soon.
