Old Rumor Surfaces Once AgainPerhaps running just as long as the rumor that the Riddler would be the villain in "The Dark Knight Rises" (which was one of the first things the secretive Christopher Nolan denied about the project) the second persistent tidbit about the forthcoming film was that Christopher Nolan and his regular DP Wally Pfister were strongly considering shooting it completely in IMAX. Of course, Nolan utilized the format for certain segments for "The Dark Knight," but due to the camera's bulky nature and noisy operation, at the time it was largely limited to exteriors or brief action sequences (notably, the opening bank heist).

Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway & Keira Knightley In The Mix; Tom Hardy Reportedly Playing A VillainHere we go again. We probably could have broken this story ourselves as every one of these names have cropped up in recent casting rounds, but the most intriguing part of this story are not the names attached, but the revelation that Christopher Nolan is seeking two female leads for "The Dark Knight Rises": one, a love interest for Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale), the other, for a villain. This really only leaves a few possibilities for the potential foe of Batman (unless Nolan is going really obscure): Catwoman, Poison Ivy or as some of our readers have suggested, Talia al Ghul.

So, before everyone starts weighing in, just bear in mind this rumor comes from Comic Book Movie who take non-vetted contributions from any yahoo on the Internet whether it be total bullshit or not. That said, they have been on the right track a few times and some of these casting rumors for Christopher Nolan's forthcoming "The Dark Knight Rises" could possibly make sense.

After months and months of speculation, some firm information on the third Batman finally appeared yesterday, courtesy of director Christopher Nolan. It'll be called "The Dark Knight Rises," and it won't be in 3D. Plus, a little while ago, we discovered that actor Tom Hardy will be joining the cast of the film in a role that most assume to be villainous in nature. But Nolan also debunked something that many had believed to be a certainty: that one of the classics in the Batman rogue's gallery, The Riddler (previously played by Jim Carrey in "Batman Forever"), would be the villain in the picture.

"We're Finishing Something, And Keeping A Consistency With What's Come Before Has Real Value"Christopher Nolan's announcement yesterday regarding his third Batman film brought news both surprising -- the yeast-y title "The Dark Knight Rises," the revelation that the villain wouldn't be The Riddler, who's been rumored for years at this point -- and unsurprising -- the confirmation that Nolan, no fan of the 3D craze, wouldn't shoot the new film in three dimensions.

File Under ShockerWe're tempted to file this one under, "no shit, sherlock," but a) we're back on our don't-be-outraged medication this week and b) we'll admit, this is, we suppose an interesting, if very foreseeable, development.
