Everybody must have seen this coming by now, even us here at nerdbastards. Christopher Nolan may be set to direct the next Batman movie, but for now it’s only a rumor. Nolan and Warner Bro. have released no official statments about Nolan directing as of yet,but it’s safe to assume he will. Christopher did respond to himself directing the third Batman:
“It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way…I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it.”
When asked if “we can safely assume you’re directing,” Nolan only replied to the question with “I think you can at this point, yes.”
If this is just Nolan trying to screw with everybody’s head he’s doing a really bad job of it. Sure, it might be awhile before an official statement is released but it’s a pretty safe bet that Christopher Nolan is going to be taking this bat by the wings.
