Batman 3

We come to bury the Dark Knight Rises casting rumors, not to praise them. It’s true, though. They’re dead – killed by the official announcement that Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy would be playing Selina Kyle and Bane respectively. For those who knew the rumors best, they were a source of comfort in an uncertain time. Although, even though they almost always made us laugh, the rumors were like a madman, cropping up every few months and chaotically cutting through the banal everyday like a breath of fresh hurricane. Now that those casting rumors are dead, let’s fondly and somberly look back at our favorites.

Poor Edward Norton just can’t catch a break. Per Deadline Fort Calhoun, Tom Hardy has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Batman film. The role is unknown, as is the sequel’s actual plot, and this is far from an official confirmation… but reporting this now saves us from having to link to an obnoxious “Toldja!” post later on down the road. Hardy worked with Nolan on Inception, a film that many people see as one he stole from his more recognizable co-stars, but his critical breakout came in the fairly brilliant and original biopic Bronson for director Nicolas Winding Refn. He’s currently in production on the John Le Carre adaptation Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy for director Tomas Alfredson and McG’s romantic comedy This Means War, but his next film to hit theaters should be the mixed martial arts flick Warrior. The opportunity to join the third Batman film came about after Hardy’s next project, George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road, saw it’s production start date moved back by a year.

Just like any actor working in Hollywood, England, Canada, South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia, and every single aspiring actor (and a few plumbers) – Edward Norton is interested in playing the main villain in Christopher Nolan’s Batman 3. Source: Common Sense

I’m actually quite surprised by the fact that we made it through the release of Inception without the expected deluge of rumors about where director Christopher Nolan will next steer the Batman franchise. The chatter was moderate, to say the least. But Comic-Con 2010 is another story. As the world of geekdom converges on San Diego for a weekend of comics and debauchery, we get our first big rumor about the inevitable sequel to The Dark Knight. Sadly, it’s one we’ve heard before.

The new champion of the people, cinematographer par example Wally Pfister is fresh off of Inception and ready to leap into action with the heaviest cameras possible for Batman 3. As a true champion of the people, he doesn’t want to do the film in 3D (most likely because it’s a gimmick that will die out of its current fad phase any year now (our words, not his)). However, Pfister did call 3D “phony” during a recent interview and went on to claim that he wants to do the entirety of Batman 3 in beautiful, soaring IMAX. Considering the limitations of the camera, this would be a great challenge for the crew, but with great challenges come great responsibility or something, and, Holy Hell, just do it already. The IMAX scenes from The Dark Knight are outstanding, and seeing a full movie that way would shove a glasses-less reality into audience’s faces. [Collider]

Can you feel that in the air? It’s the true start of Batman rumor season. Sure, there have been rumors before, but with the film’s official announcement and a concrete release date, the rumors have taken on a brand new sense of possibility, and I imagine we’ll spend a full year digging into the highly anticipated flick. The news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt might be on the short list for the character of The Riddler is the first rumor that comes anywhere close to feeling like it could be true. He’s been lauded by fans as the only realistic replacement for Heath Ledger, he’s an up-and-coming actor, he appears in Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming Inception, and he’s one hell of an actor.

There was a time — several months ago — when the web couldn’t get enough Batman 3 rumors. We (the blogosphere) were deeply entrenched in fan made posters, the possibility of Cher playing Catwoman, and about a thousand other possibilities. It was insane. But now things have changed. A new Batman 3 rumor is on the market and mum’s the word. Has the blogosphere grown tired of speculating about Christopher Nolan’s next? And all of this right as Inception gets ready to come to market. We say why not. Why not talk about Joseph Gordon Levitt as The Riddler?

It would appear as if Warner Bros. has their man. They’ve announced today that Christopher Nolan will return to his Batman franchise and churn out a third film — currently under the working title Batman 3 — for release in July 2012. Right before the world is scheduled to end. At least the legions of geekdom will die happy.

Wally Pfister

In a world where Hollywood’s new default setting for how films should be seen is the more financially juicy world of 3D, there are still a few filmmakers out there with a choice. Filmmakers like Christopher Nolan and his long-time director of photographer Wally Pfister still have a choice.

One particularly interesting piece of foolish propaganda from yesterday’s April Fool’s rally was this poster for the yet to be scripted, yet untitled and wholly ambiguous concept that is the next Batman movie. It involves Neil Patrick Harris, so pay attention.

The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has been a busy man for a while. He’s pumped out one great movie every year or so since 2005, and is now Hollywood’s hottest commodity. That is to say that he’s Warner Bros.’ biggest hired gun at the moment, as he preps his upcoming tentpole Inception for release. And it would appear as if WB is looking for Nolan to be not just the savior of their Batman franchise, but of their Superman frnachise as well.

Chances are that you and yours are keeping an eye on the world of Christopher Nolan and his movement (or lack thereof) on the next film in his Batman franchise. After the tour-de-force that was The Dark Knight, who can blame you? We’re keeping an eye on it as well. And by we, I of course mean everyone who writes about movie on the internet. Thus, this may not sound like news to many of you. But follow along anyway, lest ye be strapped with the dull-drums of your real life.
