It’s a move that even Christopher Nolan admits everyone was assuming would come to pass eventually. The filmmaker, who had everyone’s heads spinning this summer with “Inception,” will take the reigns of the next “Batman” movie as well.
"It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way," Nolan said in an interview with Empire. "I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it."
Nolan, who helmed both “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight,” has already started working on the script with Jonathan Nolan (who also wrote the screenplay for 2008's "Dark Knight"). The movie is tentatively slated for a July, 2012 release.
