Batman Sequel Coming to the Big Screen in 2012!

In other Super Hero news today, Warner Brothers has officially announced that the third Batman movie is coming out to a theatre near you on July 20th 2012!

Warner Bros. has set July 20, 2012, as the release date for the third Christopher Nolan-directed Batman movie.

The studio has barely begun the process of developing the movie; Nolan is in postproduction on “Inception,” but is hammering out a story with David Goyer. [Heat Vision]

Have you marked your calendars yet? I know it's a bit early to do so but I'm sure some of you may have written it down somewhere already, no? no?

The last Batman movie, The Dark Knight, was released 18 July 2008. That means there will have been a wait of 4 years between the movies as opposed to the 3 years between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

So the storyline is not yet known and nor is the villain (or villains) that will face the Dark Knight in his third outing. The name of the Riddler has often been bandied about by fans, and it's a character that I'd love to see Nolan take on. I'm quite certain it would be much better than Joel Schumaker/ Jim Carey's take on the villain in Batman Forever.

Are you guys excited by this news? Who should be Batman's next foe?


  1. I am hopeful for the Ridder (although I liked Jim Carrey's Riddler <_< lol), and would love to see him played by David Tennant, who has even expressed interest.

    Also, just one little nitpick -- Batman Forever was one of Joel "Nipples On The Bat-suit" Schumacher's Batman films. :P Burton produced, but Schumacher directed it. lol

  2. Yes, yes yes! David Tennant for the Riddler! The word needs to get out! You're quite right! Must change the info. Thanks!
