Following Warner Bros.' announcement that they had plans on making a Justice League, the DC Comics' Avengers-style ensemble whose key superheroes include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, speculation began on whether Nolan would be involved. According to Nolan these rumors began because of his involvement as a producer on next summer's Superman reboot, entitled "Man of Steel."
Nolan also revealed that he does not intend to get involved with any future solo Batman films when distributor Warner Bros. which owns DC Comics, decides to launch a new take on the superhero. He added that "Batman will outlive us all, and our interpretation was ours. Obviously, we consider it definitive and kind of finished. The great thing about Batman is he lives on for future generations to reinterpret, and obviously, Warner Bros. will have to decide in the future what they're going to do with him.
Christopher Nolan resurrected the Batman series in 2005 with "Batman Begins" and shattered box-office records with 2008's "The Dark Knight", which won a posthumous Academy Award for Heath Ledger as the Joker.
"The Dark Knight Rises" reunites Nolan with Oscar winners, Christian Bale as billionaire Bruce Wayne and his Batman alter-ego, Michael Caine as butler Alfred, Morgan Freeman as Wayne Enterprises mastermind Lucius Fox and Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman as Police Commissioner Jim Gordon. Joining the cast will be Anne Hathaway as the thief Selina Kyle, also known as Catwoman, and three of Nolan's "Inception" co-stars: Tom Hardy as the villain Bane, Marion Cotillard as Wayne's new business ally, Miranda Tate, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as cop John Blake.
The story being s eight years after The Dark Knight, with Batman vanished from the scene and vilified as an enemy of Gotham Citys. A limping, emotionally shattered recluse, Bale's Wayne is forced back into action as Bane lays deadly siege to the city.
The film opens July 20th and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language.
