Director Christopher Nolan announced the title of the third Batman film as "The Dark Night Rises." The flick is planned for a 2012 release and Nolan assures the public that the film will not be in 3-D, which means it won't follow the recent trend of "event" films, following the outstanding success of "Avatar."
“We want the look and feel of the film to be faithful to what has come before in the first two films,” Nolan tells the Los Angeles Times. “There was a large canvas and operatic sweep to ‘The Dark Knight’ and we want to make a film that will carry on with that look and feel.”
“This is not starting over, this is not rebooting. We’re finishing something, and keeping a consistency with what’s come before has real value," he added.
Even though the film will be in 2-D, Nolan assures moviegoers that the HD and IMAX versions will blow their minds. ”We’re looking to do something technologically that’s never been done before,” Nolan said. “Our ambitions are to make a great movie.”
