Goyer Talks Batman
Since the release of the THE DARK KNIGHT, it seems all anyone (including myself) can talk about is the inevitable follow up. Depp as The Riddler? Check. Phillip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin? Check. Ellen DeGeneres as Robin? Err...probably. Speculating on Batman 3 rumours has become a sport of sorts, and it's on the verge of overtaking Baseball as America's favorite pastime.
Well all you educated prognosticators and fanboys alike (is there a difference?), it's officially time to put a proverbial sock in it. David Goyer, the man who had a hand in writing both Batman films and who is a close, personal friend of Chris Nolan, has put all the rumours to rest in one fell swoop. In a recent interview with MTV, he had this to say about all the rumours:
It’s all B.S. ALL of it.
It doesn't get much more blunt than that folks. But Goyer wasn't even close to done. He went on to cast further uncertainty as to whether or not Nolan will remain at the helm of the franchise.
Chris and I haven’t even talked about it. He quite understandably is taking a long, long vacation and wants to purge himself. We have mused here and there [but] I mean Chris is pretty much a one movie at a time kind of guy. I wish I could tell you more. There really isn’t anything to tell. If and when [Chris is] ready to talk - we’ll talk.
So there you have it. All rumours have officially been squashed. Now we can all go back to talking about cinematic issues that really matter. So does anyone know who is playing the villain in BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA 2?
