While in the process of editing Inception, his new thriller that is set to open in July, Christopher Nolan certainly has superheros on his brain. The acclaimed director dropped a few hints about the third installment in his Batman series as well as what inspired him to help develop a Superman project.
"Without getting into specifics, the key thing that makes the third film an great possibility for us is that we want to finish our story," Nolan tells the LA Times. "And in viewing it as the finishing of a story rather than infinitely blowing up the balloon and expanding the story."
As for Superman: "[David Goyer, screenwriter on Batman Begins] basically told me, ‘I have this thought about how you would approach Superman,'" says Nolan. "I immediately got it, loved it and thought: That is a way of approaching the story I've never seen before that makes it incredibly exciting. I wanted to get Emma and I involved in shepherding the project right away and getting it to the studio and getting it going in an exciting way."
