One of the biggest questions in the comic books world today, or as far as the Hollywood films are concerned, is if there will be a third Batman film. It’s almost certain that Warner Bros. Pictures will produce another one. After all, with such a big money-making monster in their arsenal, why keep such a hot franchise on the shelf? So, the question really asked is if Christopher Nolan will make it. In 2005, Nolan successfully re-launched the Batman franchise with Batman Begins, starring Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne. He followed it up with its sequel, The Dark Knight, the most successful comic book movie to date, as well as a film that reached Titanic-level box office success. Since then, we’ve heard very little of the franchise’s future, much less about Nolan’s plans on returning. He is one very secretive man.

While the fan community is out there playing casting directors on who should be the next villain and which actor should play them, there just might be something in the works concerning a “Batman 3”. The latest report came from Deadline Hollywood, who says that screenwriter/director David S. Goyer has left his position as show runner for the TV series FlashForward to focus on other projects, one being the third Batman film.

Courtesy of Deadline Hollywood:
"As my feature projects have started ramping up again, I felt I was being pulled in too many directions," Goyer said in a statement. "I'm proud of the show and excited about the relaunch. It's in great hands."

Deadline Hollywood reports that Goyer is working with Christopher Nolan’s brother, Jonah, on the screenplay for another Batman film. If that is true, then we can assume that Christopher will be returning for the third movie. Goyer and Jonah Nolan co-wrote Batman Begins and Goyer contributed on The Dark Knight while the Nolan brothers co-wrote the screenplay for it.

Goyer is no stranger to the comic book movie. He’s written the screenplays to all three Blade films that starred Wesley Snipes. He was announced as the writer for X-Men Origins: Magneto, but that film will probably not happen as already reported here a while back. Goyer also wrote an early screenplay in 2001 for a Ghost Rider movie. Columbia Pictures went in a different direction with their 2007 film starring Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze, but now it looks like Goyer is re-writing his script from ’01 and updating it for the next film on the Spirit of Vengeance, another franchise getting an overhaul. He’s also written screenplays for Doctor Strange, Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme, and The Flash, DC’s Fastest Man Alive, two super-heroes who have yet to get the movie treatment.

I should say that this report should be taken with a grain of salt. There is very little known about the third Batman film and whenever anyone who was involved with the previous two is asked about it, they either deflect the question or just simply refuse to give any information. Some super-heroes would learn a thing or two from Nolan about keeping their secret identities intact. Until there is official confirmation from those involved, this report should be taken lightly and not seriously. There will definitely be more coming from the Batman front in the near future. Until then, we'll have to live with this report that David S. Goyer and Jonah Nolan are working on a script for a third Batman film.

i doubt it will top TDK but i still cant wait

Batman Begins is the one who's better. TDK has too many holes in the story. I'd nominate Watchmen here too, but if you weren't a fan of the comic book, you won't like the movie.

So because Goyer is back to help more with the script, it could top both Nolan Batmans, in the Box Office and in quality.

LMAO

not telling us how did Gordon survive the shooting..that's fucking retarded 4 a serious movie like this, he just lives LMAO
plus I don't remember how did Bats find the location with Harvey Dent, Gordon and his family, he's just there like in a second anyway, which looks stupid. There are more of them, I guess read them on IMDB if u don't believe me, the script for TDK isn't as good as BatmanBegins

"doesnt he say thats where his family was killed? "

True but Dent only tells that Gordon on the phone, not Batman. Thats what Wera was saying, how did Wayne find out where Gordon & Dent would be? I was saying...

1) Logical guess by Batman thats where Dent would take Gordons family
2) Batman, offscreen, found out where Dent's cell phone trace was coming from using that technology Lucius developed
3) Gordon told Batman where he was going by phone or other

Holy blockbuster, Batman! A buzzy article from the New York Times revealed that director Christopher Nolan is hard at work on another flick.

Of course, it's not like this is a huge surprise. There was no way Hollywood wasn't going to make a sequel to "The Dark Knight," the third-highest-grossing movie of all time. Still, Nolan's participation will likely cause a huge sigh of relief among moviegoers. Remember when, back in the '90s, director Joel Schumacher replaced Tim Burton and nearly killed the franchise?

The forthcoming blockbuster (not yet titled) also illustrates the escalating battle between Warner Bros. -- which produces many movies based on DC Comics, including "Batman" -- and Disney, which recently acquired DC's biggest rival, Marvel Comics.

Indeed, both studios have a slew of superhero flicks coming soon to theaters. In the New York Times article, it's revealed that "Wonder Woman" and "The Flash," both longtime favorites from DC, are "expected to (be) announced" in the coming months. Additionally, DC's "The Green Lantern," starring Ryan Reynolds as the hero and Blake Lively as his lovely love interest, is scheduled for a 2011 release. There's even a rumor that Mr. Nolan may supervise the development of a "Superman" reboot.

Clearly DC has a lot of irons in the fire. But Marvel isn't surrendering the cineplex anytime soon. Not only does Sony's forthcoming "Spider-Man" reboot have a hot director at the helm (Mark Webb of "500 Days of Summer"), it'll also come to theaters in 3D. Barring any delays, the flick, which will focus on Spider-Man's high school trials and tribulations, will spin its way onto the big screen in 2012.

What's that, Marvel superfan? Can't wait that long? No problem; "Iron Man 2" has you covered. Paramount's sequel to the surprise 2008 hit starring Robert Downey Jr. lands in theaters this summer and already has a sizable following in Search. Over the past month, online queries on the film are among Yahoo's top 3,000. Additionally, Web interest in the trailer shows no signs of slowing down. Kind of like the war between DC and Marvel.

well, Rha's Al Ghul coming to Gotham is logical, and of course, he knew Bruce Wayne before, and everybody knows where Bruce Wayne lives. I don't see really any major plothole, or any at all actually. U'll have to show me one.

When everybody is under the influence of scarecrows "fear toxin" at the end of the movie, only batman, gordon and rachel have used the antidote against it, yet this little boy that rachel saves isn´t under the influence!!
