I know we all pretty much assumed that Christopher Nolan would come back to direct the third Batman film, but he was always being so shady about it, not fully commiting to it, and there's still been no official announcement. But today that all changed in an interview with Empire when Nolan himself confirmed that he will be directing Batman 3. So for anyone that's been worried about it, worry no longer.
Here's what Nolan had to say:
I don’t know if it’s announced or if it’s not announced. It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way. I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it.
Empire then goes in for the kill to get solid confirmation asking,
Hang on, that's not 100% clear: so we can safely assume you're directing?
Nolan then comes back with...
I think you can at this point, yes.
And there it is! 100% confirmation that Nolan will indeed direct Batman 3! I have to say that I'm really excited that he's excited about what they are doing! I can't wait to see how this all come together, who the villain will be, who will be cast, and where the story will go.
