Earlier today in an interview with The LA Times director Christopher Nolan revealed the title of his third and final Batman installment "The Dark Knight rises", now Nolan is revealing more details. 

The director told the paper that he wants this third film to “carry on with that look and feel” of The Dark Knight, specifically with respect to the “large canvas and operatic sweep” of his Batman blockbuster. That’s one of the core reasons that the film will shoot and be presented in flat IMAX format rather than 3D. Another issue is the fact that 3D presents a more dim image than a traditional projection. But that’s not even the good bit. The good bit comes in his expansion of that comment:

"There’s an intimacy at times [with spatial illusion of the 3D effect] and we want didn’t want to lose scale… our ambitions for the third movie is to complete a story that has begun. This is not starting over, this not rebooting… We’re looking to do something technologically that’s never been done before… Our ambitions are to make a great movie."

The idea of consistency is essential with Batman. Wally Pfister‘s cinematography is one of the key components that makes Nolan's Batman films stand out. Their collaboration produces a calm, penetrating gaze that is unlike any other in mainstream action films. But it’s the suggestion of scale that really gets to me. Some of the shots in The Dark Knight communicate scale in a spectacular fashion, and without the flashiness that is often seen in similar films. The Dark Knight Rises isn’t just a play on the fourth chapter of Frank Miller’s original Dark Knight series [the chapter was called The Dark Knight Falls] but a promise of a rebirth for the character, and of a triumphant finish for this expanded storyline. 

Now attention is turning toward which Villain will appear in The Dark Knight Rises, with the outside favorites being linked once again Marion Cotillard as Talia Al Ghul or Catwoman & Tom Hardy [already confirmed cast] as Killer Croc or The Black Mask.

Updates as they happen.
