Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film will be called “The Dark Knight Rises” and though the Gotham City auteur isn’t ready to reveal the villain of his 2012 film, he did eliminate one of the big contenders: “It won’t be the Riddler,” Nolan said in an exclusive interview with Hero Complex.

Nolan was most eager to talk about the fact that Warner Bros. had  agreed with his argument that the film should resist the current 3-D craze and instead use 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.

Check back here later in the morning for a more in-depth look at that decision and the Nolan ambitions and reasons behind it.

As for the title, it shows the writer-director’s intention to keep his Bruce Wayne trilogy tightly stitched together. “We’ll use many of the same characters as we have all along, and we’ll be introducing some new ones,” Nolan said cryptically.  I had an odd thought: What if Nolan somehow brings back Harvey Dent? The only reason I even mention it is because, back during post-production on the second film, Nolan told me that the title “The Dark Knight” was just as much about Dent and his fall from the status of shining-knight civic crusader. Dent was plainly dead at the end of the last film, though, and Nolan has been intent on keeping his Gotham City film firmly rooted in a gritty gangland realism– this isn’t a franchise that has veered off into the supernatural or even much super-science.

Nolan plays things close to the vest — he’s one of the few filmmakers of his generation who actually does wear a vest — and he chuckled when I tried to get a few more details out of him. “Oh, you know me, I don’t talk.” He began our conversation by comparing it with a visit to the dentist’s office. Well, if so, he’s a patient who never opens wide. I asked if he could imagine a time when Warner Bros. would let a filmmaker shoot a Batman script where the villain isn’t one of the signature creations from the comic books. “Ah, Geoff Boucher, master of the leading question,” he said with a chuckle.

That’s when he did agree, however, to eliminate a villain candidate, namely Edward Nigma, the green-suited Riddler, who many people (myself included) assumed was the next natural choice. That character could be taken in a lot of directions — think of Kevin Spacey’s character in “Seven” as a compass point for one of those dark paths — but Nolan and his team are going a different way. As with “Dark Knight,” the new film has a script written by Nolan and his brother, Jonah, and it’s based on a story by the director and David Goyer. Earlier, I got Nolan to take Mr. Freeze off the list and, yes, this is like pulling teeth but don’t think for a minute that I mind. Nolan makes sublime films, and any secrets he wants to keep in place are done so to protect the final product. As for me, I’m hoping now for Hugo Strange who, come to think of it, looks a bit like a dentist…
No 3-D, thank god!!!

No clue on what villain they could use, though. Obviously it needs to be one grounded somewhat in reality, no sci-fi voodoo mumbo-jumbo. Coming out in 2012, not that far away, actually.

Maybe it'll be Two-Face again. Who knows if he died at the end for sure... and Nolan did say that "Dark Knight" described Dent just as much as Batman.

2-face should have not been in the movie..Everything was pretty predictable. Plus a lot of the characters were stupid.
And Batman has high tech armor how the hell can't you handle a couple dogs.

Well I hope 2-face comes back. Love the actor.

Nolan has said that the Penguin would be too difficult. Basically he's ruled out quite a lot. With his grittier more realistic Batman we're not going to get anyone like Killer Croc, Bane, Poison Ivy or Solomon Grundy type characters because they're not "real" enough, he's ruled out the Penguin and The Riddler and characters like Catwoman are just petty thieves, not enough to make the central antagonist of a Batman film. That leaves a whole slew of minor characters but this is the last Nolan Batman film and he'll want to finish on a high note so I'm not sure what he's going to manage to pull out of his arse.

Agreed, its good but Batman Begins was a lot better.  Dark Knight is one of the most overrated movies of all time.  Not that it isnt good, its just not omgbestmovieeveriloveitsomuchimgonnatellmymommyevery5minutes good.

I he doesn't re-use the joker, but two face might be interesting. He brought scarecrow back for the second one.

Unless the man lied...he already said that's not it.
