Batman 3 Titled The Dark Knight Rises; No Riddler, No 3D

Liked the Joker said in The Dark Knight: “Here…we….go”. Director Christopher Nolan has finally given fans some details about the follow-up to The Dark Knight. Some of it may surprise you, some of it might not.

Collider says:

Director Christopher Nolan has spilled some revelations to Hero Complex about the upcoming film. First up, the next Batman movie will be titled The Dark Knight Rises. Nolan also tells Hero Complex that The Riddler will not be the villain in the third film. There have been reports that Killer Croc may be the villain, but that rumor came from Mark “in-no-way-trustworthy” Millar.

Finally, Nolan confirms what we already suspected: the film won’t be in 3D. Cinematographer Wally Pfister shares Nolan’s lack of enthusiasm for the technology. However, they’re both fans of IMAX and will “…instead use high-definition approaches and IMAX cameras to strike out on a different cinematic path…” Nolan filmed the intro of the Dark Knight in IMAX.

I like the title. I guess it hints at some sort of redemption for Bats, after that TDK ending. As for the Riddler not being a villain, I’m surprised. This makes it even more interesting, to see who the villain(s) will be. It might end up being a female villain after all, like the rumors have said. I guess we’ll have to wait and see until it’s decided. And as for no 3D, I’m glad. I’m not a big fan of 3D. And for a film like this, I prefer for them to end the trilogy with some cinematography continuity. Do the IMAX, but no 3D please.

What do you guys think of the title? You ok with no Riddler? You want 3D or IMAX?
