Recently Sir Michael Caine revealed in an interview with BBC that Batman 3 may potentially be the movie that he decides to end his career with. Talk about going out with a bang! While discussing this he only revealed a little bit of detail about the forthcoming Batman movie. And by little… I do mean a little. The guy is sealed up like fucking Fort Knox. But what he did reveal however was more about Christopher Nolan and his personality more than anything.
As far as Batman 3 is concerned Caine said,
“There will be a new Batman. It will probably start in May next year. I assume I’m there, but in the movie business you never believe anything, you assume. But I’ve been in the last four Chris Nolan pictures, he’s my lucky charm. I did ‘Prestige’, and recently ‘Inception’, I’m hoping to do another one. He’s written the new one.”
And as if that was crpytic and inrevealing enough for ya here’s what Caine had to say about a potential villain;
“No one will tell you. Chris is the most secretive man in the world.”
Sir Michael Caine did however decide to let us into the world of Mr. Christopher Nolan. As far as his method of making a film and his relationship with his actors Caine tell us;
“The first time when he asked me to do ‘Batman Begins’, I played a butler, he came to my house on a Sunday morning, he had the script. He went and said, ‘Can you read it now,’ so I read it and said, ‘It’s fantastic, I’ll do it’ so I went to put the script in my office and he said, ‘No, I want it back.'”
“He waited until I finished reading, had a cup of tea with my missus and then took the script away again in case someone saw it. Actors are such silly sods they don’t know what they’re doing half the time.”
Although it is super nteresting getting a little inside the mind of someone like Nolan. We’re all super excited and really interested in what the heck he’s doing with this next Batman installment; if it happens at all! Now, let’s say all goes well and the film does come out as expected in June of 2012 (without unforeseen Hobbit like mishaps, of course). What direction do you think Nolan should take? Who should the villain be? Should he include Joseph Gordon Levitt as a potential Riddler?
