Nolan (Vaguely) Answers if He'll Direct Third Batman

October 27, 2008


Hey, grandchildren, do you still follow that cape man you liked so much? That... Batmin character? Oh, good, because Christopher Nolan has finally spoken on if he's doing a third Batmin movie! His answer: maybe. More specifically:

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.

Maybe he's right. You can't always maintain the kind of third-chapter quality of an Austin Powers in Goldmember.
