Batman 3 Due in 2011
Batman 3 is set to hit theaters in 2011.
With The Dark Knight not only the biggest hit of 2008 but also one the highest grossing movies of all time, Warner Bros. is understandably eager to bring director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale back to the Batcave as soon as possible.
According to The Wall Street Journal, “The studio is set to announce its plans for future DC movies in the next month. For now, though, it is focused on releasing four comic-book films in the next three years, including a third Batman film, a new film reintroducing Superman, and two movies focusing on other DC Comics characters.”
Given the success of the grim and gritty Dark Knight, Warner Bros. Pictures Group President Jeff Robinov says the studio’s upcoming DC movie slate is “going to try to go dark to the extent that the characters allow it.”
It was recently reported that Warners has an offer out to Nolan to direct Batman 3 but that the director had yet to commit to it. Studio boss Alan Horn told Variety at the time, “We have no idea where Chris is going with this. … We haven’t had any conversations with him about it.”
