No 3D for third Batman film: The Dark Knight Rises
Christopher Nolan has confirmed he will be shooting in IMAX not 3D when cameras start rolling on the third Batman film The Dark Knight Rises.
To be filmed in New Orleans from April next year, the third installment will hit cinemas worldwide on July 20, 2012.
Writer and director Nolan today revealed the name of the third installment won't include the word Batman. It will be named The Dark Knight Rises.
"It will employ high-definition approaches and IMAX cameras to strike out on a different cinematic path than the stereoscopic technology that, for better or worse, has become the dominant conversation in the blockbuster sector," he said.
While he won't reveal who the villain will be, he reckons it won't be The Riddler as rumoured.
"We'll use many of the same characters as we have all along, and we'll be introducing some new ones."
