According to Michael Caine, he’s heard that Christopher Nolan will be back at work in Gotham City by April of next year. Of course, he could be wrong, but since Warner Bros. has already penciled the sequel for a July 2012 release, an early 2011 start-date would probably make a whole lot of sense.
Here’s Michael Caine (who plays Bat’s butler Alfred in the “Batman” movies) at at an “Inception” red carpet premiere (I’m guessing London or thereabouts). Props to the reporter for sneaking the “Batman 3” question in. You know that’s what he asked the previous question for, to set up this one. Smooth, brother, real smooth.
