Christopher Nolan was recently presented with with the Modern Master Award for Inception at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. While there he was asked where he got the title for The Dark Knight Rises, Nolan said jokingly “I banged my head against the wall.”
According to superherohype.net Nolan went on to say, “We’ve worked on it a long time – David Goyer and myself. We’re about 12 weeks away from shooting. We start in May.” We all know that there was a time when Nolan wasn’t sure he wanted to make a third Batman film, when he was asked why he decided to do it the director said, “It was about finishing the story.”
Nolan didn’t confirm whether Anne Hathaway would play Catwoman or just Selina Kyle in the new film. When he was asked about it, he smiled coyly but didn’t say a word. Let’s just assume Catwoman is going to be in it, and it will be unlike any other Catwoman we’ve seen before.
The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled to open in theaters on July 20, 2012.
