Nolan talks Bats 3!

Christopher Nolan has finally opened up about THE DARK KNIGHT's ridiculous box-office take, and the prospect of making a third movie. The link is HERE and while I delude myself into thinking you're still here with me, I really think a solid direction for this franchise to take would be to bring Superman in, tasked with bringing Bats to justice. Anyway, here is probably the highlight of the piece (when asked if he saw himself making another):

"Well ... let me think how to put this. There are two things to be said. One is the emphasis on story. What’s the story? Is there a story that’s going to keep me emotionally invested for the couple of years that it will take to make another one? That’s the overriding question. On a more superficial level, I have to ask the question: How many good third movies in a franchise can people name? [Laughs.] At the same time, in taking on the second one, we had the challenge of trying to make a great second movie, and there haven't been too many of those either. It’s all about the story really. If the story is there, everything is possible. I hope that was a suitably slippery answer."

True story: I had lunch with this chick today that has still to see THE DARK KNIGHT. I didn't know I had a drop-kick reflex but I think the important thing is that you learn something new every day and I learned several, including that nugget, the fastest route to the hospital from Waterloo station, and that even heavy-set chicks that listen to metal have glass jaws.

Extra Tidbit: Nolan was intending to make a Howard Hughes biopic starring Jim Carrey. Nolan had the screenplay written (calling it "one of the best things I've ever written"), but once it became apparent Martin Scorsese was doing THE AVIATOR, Nolan reluctantly tabled his script and took up directing BATMAN BEGINS.
