According to basically every major movie site’s twitter feeds (including /film, CHUD, Screenrant and AICN) Gary Oldman stepped on stage for his part in the Book of Eli panel and drew attention away from Denzel’s disarming smile by announcing that the third Batman film will begin filming next year.

Holy Hell!

I’m trying to calm down and remember back when Michael Caine was flapping his gums about a film happening despite no one being signed on, no script being written, and no one at the studio discussing it. But if it’s true, that could be the biggest geek news to come out of Comic-Con so far.

I can’t imagine OIdman would throw a bone like that to the ravenous geek wolves at Con without getting some sort of clearance from Warners, so I’m hoping for more detailed information coming out of the studio fairly soon regarding a confirmation (or denial) that the project is on track. Frankly, without confirmation and without knowing whether Christopher Nolan is on board, getting excited could be very, very premature. I’ll work on trying to email out and get a definite answer.

Now we just have to figure out what to call it. Batman Begins 3? Harry Potter and The Dark Knight?
