Empire Online spoke to Nolan who has now confirmed his return;
“I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it.”
Fresh from the success of Inception (Hollywood’s first piece of originality since God knows when … although Duck Tales may have something to say about it), Nolan recently confirmed he will be working (not as the director) on the refreshing of the the Superman franchise as well. His schedule continues to fill up with the inclusion of the final Batman trilogy, one he reignited with Batman Begins in 2005.
Christian Bale is expected to return to reprise his role as Batman, but so far, no other casting announcements have been made. The Joker however, will not be returning.
