With the success of The Dark Knight there’s a good chance Christopher Nolan, David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan will be getting a phone call from Warner Bros. some time soon asking them to free up their schedule and start thinking about ‘Batman 3’, ‘The Dark Knight 2’ or whatever you want to call it until an official title is announced. Luckily for Warner Bros, David Goyer and co have already been talking about it.
“I think that’s the scariest thing – to think, could we come up with a third movie that was as good as the first two? Can we top ourselves?” screenwriter David Goyer asked aloud, almost rhetorically, in a recent conversation with MTV News. “Doing it a third time would be a big proposition.”
Make no mistake about it, though, a third film HAS been discussed, Goyer confessed, revealing that, while nothing is concrete, both a villain and a theme have been bandied about.
“We’ve only talked loosely about it, though, Chris and I,” Goyer said
The fact that Goyer has a theme he wants to keep in mind for a possible “Batman 3? means he also has a direction, a crisis, and, yes, a villain.
So what is it?
“I have one,” Goyer said laughing. “But I’m not going to tell you. Chris is very particular about that.
“I do think, though, that if there’s not a third film – these two movies stand on their own,” he added. “I think it could go either way.”
Where do you want the third movie to go?
