No Nolan for Batman 3?

ChristopherNolan.jpgIs Christopher Nolan going to direct the third Batman film and complete the restarted trilogy? Right now we don't know, and neither does Christian Bale.

Although Bale is optioned for a third, he's not actually sure if he'll make the film as he wouldn't want to do it unless Christopher Nolan is on board.

When Christian Bale was asked in an interview about if he thought there would be a third he said:

"Um, look, let's wait and see…

… obviously the decision is out of my hands. I would, knowing the Dark Knight story, I would like very much to complete a trilogy. And I think that knowing the story of The Dark Knight, it leaves you anticipating something that really can get very, very interesting for a third. Now, the question would be: Is Chris going to be doing it? Because to me I find it tricky to imagine working on it without it being a collaboration with Chris."

The comments were made over at EW through /Film.

So it's uncertain if Christopher Nolan would be returning, and if he isn't then I wouldn't think that Bale would be. What would you prefer, a third Batman film with no Nolan and Bale or no third film at all?

I actually think that Nolan will return, the offer will be made and it'll be made big to ensure he does. However the plan seemed to be to make more of the Joker in the third film, so it'll be interesting to see what way they take it. A new villain perhaps, or a new Joker?
