THE DARK KNIGHT RISES to be completely Shot in IMAX?

As you all know, Christopher Nolan only shot certain scenes of The Dark Knight Returns in full IMAX. We figured he would do the same thing with his third Batman film The Dark Knight Rises, but it sounds like he's going to take it to a whole new level of awesomeness, by shooting the entire film in IMAX! Oh, hell yeah!

Here's what inside sources had to say: 

I’m hearing that Nolan will try and shoot The Dark Knight Rises totally in IMAX. I’ve heard that IMAX has been quietly developing a smaller, less intrusive camera that will be able to handle dialogue scenes. If the camera is finished in time, expect Nolan to use it. 

I really hope this smaller IMAX camera technology gets done in time, because it would be so freakin' cool to see The Dark Knight Rises in full on IMAX. The size, weight and noise of the IMAX cameras have previously restricted what Nolan could do with them, but if they can fix these limitations, then we're in for something special. Nolan recently let everyone know that he has no intention of shooting the film in 3D, but I think shooting and watching it in IMAX will be so much more impressive. What do you all think?
