Let It Burn

Screenwriter David Goyer told MTV over the weekend that he has an idea of what Batman 3 (can we call it that? Perhaps we should leave it as just a follow-up to The Dark Knight?) will be about.

He admits, however, that the prospects for the film are daunting, especially considering the rave reviews the last two have received.

“I think that’s the scariest thing – to think, could we come up with a third movie that was as good as the first two? Can we top ourselves?” Goyer asked aloud. “Doing it a third time would be a big proposition.”

Don't be fooled, of course: there will be another Batman movie.

Goyer even mentioned that he has a villian in mind for it, but: “I do think, though, that if there’s not a third film – these two movies stand on their own... I think it could go either way.”

Again, just to reiterate: there will be a third film. Have no fear.

When the second one sets a box office record, that's pretty much a no-brainer.

The Dark Knight Quotes

Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight.

Lt. James Gordon

Wanna know how I got these scars? My father was....a drinker. And a fiend. And one night he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn't like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. Turns to me and he says "Why so serious?" Comes at me with the knife,"Why so serious?" He sticks the blade in my mouth. "Lets put a smile on that face!" And..... Why so serious?
