Top 10 Things We Want in Batman 3
IGN has a list of the top ten things that they want to see in Batman 3:
Like the rest of you, we simply can’t wait for director Christopher Nolan to succumb to the temptation of a truckload of cash so that he will return to make Batman 3. Consider this feature our wish list for who and what we’d like to see Nolan include or explore further in his next Bat-film, which Warner Bros. reportedly wants in theaters by 2011.
We’ll be covering the comic book characters, locations, gear and other narrative elements that we hope and expect Nolan and Co. to utilize in their gritty, realistic portrayal of Batman and Gotham City. Here then our top 10 must-haves for Batman 3:
