    Would Robin or Nightwing be better for this sequel?

    This is what I was thinking as well. My guess is going to be December of 2012.

    I know people think 2012 is a long time, but I think Heath dying kind of threw a wrench into Nolan's plans for a third movie. Personally I really think they should take that extra year to ensure that they have a solid script that will equal or surpass The Dark Knight. You know...unless you guys actually want another half-assed abortion like X-Men: The Last Stand or Spider-Man 3.

    I can't even begin to fathom the fanboy rage that plague these boards if "Batman 3" failed to live up to the standards set by TDK.

    2012 is a stretch... Nolan needs to get off his high horse and just sign the freaking contract already. He's gonna end up doing it eventually... the longer you wait... the less the fire burns as time goes on.

    I'm going with 2011. That's enough time to do what needs to be done, if Nolan gets on the ball.

    Any proof?

    If not, I seriously doubt this.

    He's going off of what he read on Batman on film. That's what someone reported there...I find it highly unlikely.

    Sony is positioning SM4 for 2011... Marvel has Cap AND Avengers lined up... WB is stalling with ALL their DC films... Nolan doesn't look like he will committ anytime soon. One of those films will be ousted from 2011. I'd bet on Avengers just due to the sheer enormity of the project. But BB3 in 2011 may be a reach as well... considering we already got TDK confirmation around this time in pre-pro for that flick.

    Any summer date in 2011 will be perfect for BB3 -- one Marvel film's success is not guaranteed (Captain America) and the other just has two stars and producers attached (Avengers).

    If Marvel has to push back anything, it might be Avengers. If they take it off the schedule, Warners should lock in BB3 in the same date that TDK did so well in (July 15, 2011). Even a mid-June release would be ideal.

    You know, it is possible they might release in 2013. And before you Apocolyptic Aztec people descend upon me, the world won't end for about another 4 and a half billion years when they sun goes out.

    I definitely think 'The Avengers' will move back if this is true. It'd be good for "Captain America" too because people will get used to the character & the actor won't be worn out.

    I'd say that date is too far off, 2011 or 2012. And we'll have to wait and see on that one. :cwink:

    For real. I'm pretty sure if Nolan even thought of having Robin in this movie, WB will deny him instantly. Robin was what killed the last series.

    Oh so the bad story, dialog, production design, villain choices and such were all good then? It was all Robin's fault? huh. :whatever:

    I'm thinking if WB wants to push the release date back, but keep the movie in 2011, then it is entirely possible we may get BB3 during awards season. WB now knows that they have the necessary elements for serious critical success, so they might pit the movie up against the bait films.

    i found that the dark knight landed perfect in my summer, anyone else agree?

    I think the middle of July would be great again.

    The filming schedule and budget (holy crap!) for Inception was released today [source], they're supposed to finish filming in December. If WB is holding off on serious sequel talks because Nolan doesn't want to be distracted from his current project then we probably won't get any real news until sometime early next year.

    This is starting to look more like a summer 2012 release now.

    If Nolan can start filming B3 in January some how and put a teaser trailer with some footage on the start of Inception that would an excellent move Box Office wise.

    Nolan will still be up to his neck in post-production stuff for Inception in January, plus they plan on filming in Canada during winter so some unforseen delays are almost certain.

    Still, I'm sure if WB has officially announced a sequel by the time Inception is released in July they'll have some kind of Batman 3 teaser attached to it, even if it's just a logo animation with a voiceover like the first TDK teaser.
