Christopher Nolan fans may be rather upset to hear that the director is reportedly "never" going to make another Batman film.
The news was broken by Christopher's wife and co-producing partner Emma Thomas. When asked whether Emma thought that the well-established director would make a fourth Batman film, she revealed,
"No, that's truly a never. I can't imagine a world in which he would ever want to come back. At a certain point it's fun to go off and do something different, you know. We've spent almost ten years of our lives making Batman films. He was very excited about this film, and the story that he'd come up with, but I just cannot imagine that he would get that excited about another version of the same thing."
The final edition to the Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, opens in cinemas July 20th and stars Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy. Some fans of the popular series of films might be happy to hear that the director is ending it on the third film and opting for quality and not quantity. Emma went on to reveal more on why Christopher wants to finish at three, saying,
"The great thing about a trilogy is that it feels like you've got a beginning, a middle and an end. It's like an extended version of a regular film. Once you get into a fourth film then it's just episodic, and I just can't see him getting excited about making another film where basically you're just wheeling in different villains."
