According to PerezHilton.com, Christopher Nolan has been confirmed to direct the next Batman film, currently titled, The Untitled Batman Project.
After Nolan’s success with Batman Begins, The Dark Night, and more recently, Inception, it would seem silly for him to turn down the completion of the trilogy. Warner Brothers is being very quiet about the project. Perhaps they have another media stunt up their sleeve akin to the mystery surrounding Inception.
Christian Bale will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Michael Caine is still Alfred, but who is going to play the Riddler? People are dying to know who will play the character. It is rumored that Joseph Gordon Levitt will play the Riddler, but again, this could be a riddle in itself. I guess we will have to wait and see!
The film is in pre-production and Nolan is in final stages with the script. However, we probably won’t see this film for another couple of years.
