While on The Book of Eli panel at Comic-Con today Gary Oldman, who played Commissioner Gordon in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, said something that he probably shouldn’t have.
Gary Oldman just announced at the Warner Bros. Book of Eli panel that a third Batman film will go into production next year.
“I think the next Batman is next year,” he told a fan who asked about when the long-awaited “Dark Knight” follow-up would hit, “We start shooting next year. You didn’t hear that from me.”
Christopher Nolan, while he hasn’t committed to the third film, is expected to return to direct after he has finished Inception which will be released next July. If Warner Bros. give Nolan a few months break and time to write the script then they could very well be filming by the end of 2010.
