Yesterday Christopher Nolan revealed that the title of Batman 3 would be The Dark Knight Rises. It was also noted that he would not be shooting or converting the film for 3D. This will be strictly made for IMAX. Nolan went on to talk a little bit more about his decision not shoot the film in 3D.

Nolan doesn’t want the film to be in 3D is because according to him “We want the look and feel of the film to be faithful to what has come before in the first two films. There was a large canvas and operatic sweep to ‘The Dark Knight’ and we want to make a film that will carry on with that look and feel.” He goes on to say,

There’s an intimacy at times [with spatial illusion of the 3D effect] and we want didn’t want to lose scale… our ambitions for the third movie is to complete a story that has begun. This is not starting over, this not rebooting… We’re looking to do something technologically that’s never been done before… Our ambitions are to make a great movie.

Um, Yay!  While Batman 3  is one of those times that even the most critical of 3D would say the treatment is called for I think this is actually really great news. It shows that Nolan doesn’t have to answer to studio executives trying to make a quick buck, but is sticking to his own unique vision.

What do you all think about what Nolan had to say here?
