Nolan on Batman 3 and his Superman re-launch

Yahoo movies has a nice summary up of the recent LA Times article in which Nolan talks about his plans for the Superman franchise, as well as the fact that he’s going to be making only one final Batman film.

Of note in the article…not only will ‘Batman 3′ be his last Bat-film, but it will be an ending to Batman!  He will be wrapping up the characters in the Nolan-verse and giving his tale an actual ending, rather than an open-ended conclusion.  He will officially be making this a self-contained bat-trilogy, so expect a full re-launch of the Bat once Nolan is through.

“I’m very excited about the end of the film, the conclusion, and what we’ve done with the characters,” Nolan tells the Times. “Unlike the comics, these things don’t go on forever in film and viewing it as a story with an end is useful.”

Nolan goes on to note that the villain for the third bat-film will definately not be Mr. Freeze.
…and as for Superman..

Nolan admits in the interview that the idea for his take on Superman came about when he was stuck while working on the story for the next Batman movie. In a fit of writer’s block, David Goyer, who crafted the stories of the previous two films with Nolan, made an off-hand proposal of what they could do with a Superman movie.

“He basically told me, ‘I have this thought about how you would approach Superman,’” Nolan said. “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.”
