Not only does "The Dark Knight Rises" cap off Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise, it marks the end of an era of sorts for both the director and cinematographer Wally Pfister. They've both done some incredible work on the series (and all of Nolan's films), but it now looks they are changing up the working relationship.

Color yourself not shocked, but be content that the upgrade is not a 3D conversion. Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins" will receive the IMAX treatment on July 19, leading up to the finale of his Batman trilogy, "The Dark Knight Rises" which opens the next day on July 20. 

Sorry Guys, Christopher Nolan Says He Won't Be Making Any More Batman Movies

You would think, with Christopher Nolan more or less saying for a while now that "The Dark Knight Rises" was going to be his last time in Gotham, and with advertising for the film clearly stating that it's "The Epic Conclusion" to his series of Batman films, that talk about a possible fourth film would be quelled. Not so. Recently, Christian Bale was asked by the Spanish edition of Rolling Stone magazine if he would suit up again as Batman. “No, this is the last of this Batman era. Unless Nolan wants to do another," he replied. Well, fanboys in some quarters held onto the latter half of that quote like a life preserver on the Titanic, but in case it wasn't obvious already, it's not going to happen.

We're now getting into the final stretch before "The Dark Knight Rises," probably the most anticipated film of a year that's had plenty of hotly anticipated pictures. After a main trailer a month or so back, we got another sneak peek of footage at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, as well as a steady drip of posters and images that have managed to tease without giving away the whole shop.

It's about six weeks to go before "The Dark Knight Rises" hits, closing up Christopher Nolan's Bat-trilogy, and likely marking the end of the first act of his career (it's easy to forget that the director is only 41 -- a couple of decades younger than most of his A-list competition). Given that the film is a guaranteed hit, and it's off the back of "Inception," the most personal film of the director's career that also happened to make $800 million worldwide, the world is the director's oyster, as far as what comes next -- whatever he would like to make, he'll be given a handsome sum to do exactly that.

"The Avengers" is now one of the biggest movies of all time, and "Prometheus" is already killing it overseas and drops into theaters stateside next weekend, which leaves "The Dark Knight Rises" as the last big, hugely anticipated blockbuster of the summer season. And tonight during the MTV Movie Awards, Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale appeared in person to present new footage from the film exclusively to close off the show. And yes, this thing looks fucking epic.

It's interesting how the narrative changes. After the monumental success of "The Dark Knight," Christopher Nolan clearly needed a break and a palette cleanser that became "Inception," as per his blockbuster rule (the director also shot "The Prestige" in between the first two Batman films). At the time, when asked about a third Batman film, Nolan said he and David S. Goyer would take a break and would only make a third picture if and when they came across a good story to tell. But recent interviews between Goyer, Nolan and co-screenwriter Jonah Nolan suggest that this trio always knew how Bruce Wayne's story would end.

It may be foggy now, but if memory serves us right, people reacted pretty kindly to helmer Christopher Nolan’s introduction to his own Batman world with 2005’s “Batman Begins.” While director Tim Burton delivered the comic book goods in 1989’s “Batman” and 1992’s marvelously underrated “Batman Returns” – with Joel Schumacher ratcheting up the comic book excess to an unnecessary degree with “Batman Forever” and “Batman & Robin” – Nolan introduced a darker tint to the superhero than we'd had before, and would later lead “The Dark Knight” to become a box office sensation in 2008.

Fear not – once the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy hits theaters this summer, the director’s name will still be attached to another comic book property, that of Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, “Man of Steel.” After all, the film was Nolan’s baby at first, originating with him and writer David S. Goyer through initial drafts, but in a recent interview with Empire Magazine (via ComicBookMovie), Nolan clarified exactly how much involvement he will have in the finished production.
