Director Chris Nolan has confirmed that the third installment in his revival of the Batman films in the beginning stages of development, and could be released as early as 2011!!
However, no casting details have been confirmed, and it is still unknown if Christian Bale will be back as the caped crusader.
Rumors circulate that the villain in this installment will be the Riddler and that Johnny Depp is heavily favored to be cast in the role, if his commitment to "Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides" does not conflict.
Other favorites to be the Riddler are Jude Law, Evan Magregor or James McAvoy among others.
Other rumors abound that Amy Adams or Rachel Evan Wood will be cast as Bruce Wayne's love interest.
But remember, all of this is NOT confirmed! It's all rumors at this point!
