In a recent interview with the L.A. Time’s, director Christopher Nolan revealed a few new details on his upcoming Batman sequel. The first big news was the unveiling of the title for the movie, which is… (imagine a drumroll please)… The Dark Knight Rises. He also revealed that contrary to rumour, the main villain will not be The Riddler. I may have said it would be on this site back in July, may apologies.

Nolan wouldn’t give any hints as to who the villain will be but he went on to say; “We’ll use many of the same characters as we have all along, and we’ll be introducing some new ones.”  He really is playing this one close to the chest isn’t he?

The Dark Knight Rises is on course for a July 2012 release and will be shot in 2-D (yay!)  with hi-def I-MAX sequences.
