It's Time for Batman...to start filming...
Apparently principal shooting has begun on Christopher Nolan's final installment of his Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight rises! You can read the details in the press release here.
I don't know about you, but these are very exciting times for me. I am a huge fan of the first two movies, as I think most people are, and have full faith and confidence that Nolan will be able to complete the hat trick and deliver another amazing Batman film. I'm also excited to see that all the key players, Bale, Caine, Oldman, and Freeman, are returning, and am really excited that Joseph Gordon Levitt has been added to the cast, slated to play a cop by the name of John Blake, as well as Marion Cotillard, who will be playing Miranda Tate.
One thing I'm not excited about - Anne Hathaway (as Selina Kyle). Just not a fan. Everyone keeps telling me how great she is but I have yet to see the performance to make me believe it. I'm not saying she's bad, just, enh...at least to me. Whatever though, I wasn't thrilled about Katie Holmes or the other Gyllenhaal either, but neither of them detracted from the movie. Like I said before, full faith and confidence in Nolan.
Anyway, I know it's just starting and we have a long way to go before we see an actual movie...but good Batman news is always worth posting.
