THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS
Writer David Goyer told MTV that absolutely nothing you've read about a third trip to Gotham City is true. "It's all B.S.," he said. "ALL of it. Chris and I haven't even talked about it. He quite understandably is taking a long, long vacation and wants to purge himself. We have mused here and there [but] I mean Chris is pretty much a one movie at a time kind of guy. I wish I could tell you more. There really isn't anything to tell."
Starring Christian Bale, directed by Christopher Nolan from Warner Brothers Pictures.
