The Dark Knight Rises Details Emerge

So the conclusion of Christopher Nolan's Batman Trilogy will be called The Dark Knight Rises.  Nolan has also revealed that The Riddler will not be the villain and sources say he doesn't like Mr Freeze or The Penguin either.  So Catwoman possibly?  Did Two-Face really die?  Possibly not since Nolan said in his interview today that many old characters will return as well as some new ones.  Which ever way Nolan takes the film, it's sure to be another masterpiece.Nolan also revealed in another LA times interview today that the film will not be shot in 3D and gave his reasons why. 
     "The title of the new film is 'The Dark Knight Rises' and we will be shooting and exhibiting the film in 2-D. We want the look and feel of the film to be faithful to what has come before in the first two films. There was a large canvas and operatic sweep to 'The Dark Knight' and we want to make a film that will carry on with that look and feel."
      "Stereoscopic presentation would have significantly changed the feel of certain 'Dark Knight' scenes, such as rooftop and aerial shots in Hong Kong that created vast and startling night vistas. There’s an intimacy at times with spatial illusion of the 3-D effect and we didn’t want to lose scale." 

     "Our ambition for the third movie is to complete a story that has begun. This is not starting over, this not rebooting. We’re finishing something, and keeping a consistency with what’s come before has real value. We’re looking to do something technologically that’s never been done before. Our ambitions are to make a great movie." 

The Dark Knight Rises is set to be released on July 20, 2012!
