THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
The news comes from the always wonderful playlist blog (via LA Times Hero Complex Blog). Nolan also states the film won't be shot in 3D. However, a quick note here, I don't know if this is completely final. Nolan is a very technical director and I think he still might be intrigued by shooting in 3D further down the line. Also, he didn't confirm or deny the rumors that he will totally be shooting the whole film in IMAX. People salivating for any details about plot or characters should know that he did say THE RIDDLER will not be the villain.
Not content with Batman stealing all the thunder, FOX and James Cameron announced today that they will be shooting AVATAR 2 & 3 back to back next year. This is actually pretty news considering just weeks ago Cameron was considering making Cleopatra with Angelina Jolie. But now we will have the Avatar sequels in 2014 and 2015 and they will star Justin Bieber, I'm just kidding. One also has to wonder why Cameron is releasing these films in 2014 and 2015 because being such a nature-science-hollywood diety he probably know the world will end in 2012 anyway.
