‘Batman 3’ To Start Filming Next April

Digital Spy is reporting that Batman 3, the sequel to The Dark Knight, will start filming in April 2011.

They got this juicy bit of news while talking to Sir Michael Caine about his new film Inception, directed by Christopher Nolan. Check the video below to see the scoop for yourself. Caine plays Alfred the butler in the current Nolan-directed Batman movies.

So if they are planning to begin shooting in less than a year, one can only assume that most of the details related to the film are finalized, or close to it.

Back in May, Warner Bros revealed that the third Batman movie would be released on July 20, 2012.

Let’s bust out the theories. Who’s going to be the villain? Who will play them? Will the Batman voice get any better than the last movie? (God I hope so!) Hit up the comments with what you think we’ll see, or what you hope we’ll see.

  1. I’m excited to hear about the third Batman getting the greenlight. Christopher Nolan has breathed fresh life into the mired franchise.

    The villain has to be Riddler. I believe even Gary Oldman hinted at that during a press conference. Something along the lines of being a techno terrorist. It’d be funny to see Scarecrow make another cameo because I don’t think such an uncommon bad guy has seen as much screen time as him.

    Robin Williams might make a good Riddler if he scowls a lot. Considering his age, though, Joseph Gordon-Levitt might make a better candidate.

  2. I never minded Batman’s voice. I’m really excited about this one. I’d be shocked if it was anyone besides the Riddler as a brilliant narcissist with severe OCD. I confident Nolan will bring this story to a close in a very satisfying way.

  3. The villain has got to be the Gotham police force…. batman was on the run for the murder of 2 cops, 5 total people… I think the scarecrow should come back.. the scarecrow helped bring Ras A Gul come to Gotham so I believe he should finish the series by bringing in Dead Shot for sure… and I think Bane should make an appearance as well as Catwoman…. I would save Robin at the end…. two-face should be running the streets… they reference that the crazies are all over Gotham but we never see any other then the Joker, but the Joker is just a freak of nature…. The Riddler should be the main Villain however and he should get more screen time then the Joker did…. I’m a bigger fan of The Riddler then the Joker actually…. I think in a movie setting he definitely is best….. The Riddler is more human after all… The Riddler should be played by someone smart and comical… Robin Williams is a great actor and one hour photo is great too… I think the Riddler should be played by John Stamos

  4. I think the next batman installment will be great but I hoped they wouldn’t do riddler he’s cool and a great villain, but we’ve seen him already as portrayed by jim carrey not the best performance but decent. I would hope we would do a different villain that already done like clayface that would be awesome especially since we have the technology to make it look awesome but if they want to redo villains redo ones that sucked like Mr. Freeze needs to be redone because arnorld ruined the vision of him. I would choose christopher Lloyd as freeze since he almost looks like the cartoon charcter. You shave his head paint him blue red spectacles and a retro suit and then he just acts like he hates the world and is going to make them pay for killing his wife. Also luscius would be involved he later builds freezes suit because they were old friends before victor got frozen. This is what I wrote in my screenplay. Riddler is on the loose and toying with batman with games and puzzles while freeze resurfaces after 20 years of being frozen under wayne hospital. If anyone wants more details on my screenplay email me at [email protected]

  5. Since Nolan has has already said characters like The Penquin are too unrealistic to exist in his vision of Batman, there is a less than zero chance characters like Clayface and Mr Freeze are even being considered. My money is on the Riddler.

  6. Aaron Eckhart did such a spectacular job making Harvey Dent/Two-Face such an intensely relatable yet potentially vicious character, that it would be a travesty not to bring him back for the third movie. Two-Face is about as “out-there” as Nolan is going to get with a villain in his Batman universe, and I think it’s a no-brainer.

    I also wouldn’t mind seeing a good Catwoman finally. Not the crazed secretary Michelle Pfeiffer from Tim Burton’s sequel, or the timid cosmetics company artist Halle Berry from that horrible spin-off. I’m talking gritty yet sexy Selina Kyle, former-prostitute-turned-cat burglar, who uses blackmail, extortion and possible ties to the Falcone family to take advantage of the mess that is now Gotham City.

    I’m sure I will take alot of flak for this, but I strongly support the notion of NO Riddler. It’s bad enough that Nolan skewed the Joker so much to match his idea of the character (and lucky enough that Heath Ledger did such an amazing job with it), but to have Nolan’s version of the Riddler out there as the main villain would feel far from threatening.
