What's Holding Up "The Dark Knight" Sequel?

Posted: August 27th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
WhatSubmit Comment
"The Dark Knight" has broken lots of records and reached some amazing goals. It took the film 18 days to reach the $400 million domestic benchmark, fastest ever. It had a worldwide IMAX gross of $49.8 million, highest ever. It earned $158.4 million during its opening weekend, best ever. And it has currently grossed $489.4 million in domestic box office, second highest ever.

Now, the movie is moving on to a new challenge, as Heath Ledger is being pushed by Warner Bros for year-end awards. He is almost certain to win a Golden Globe nomination -- and might well be up for an Oscar.

A DVD release of the film is said to be planned for the holidays (the studio won't confirm a date). And Warners and Legendary are both interested in doing a third in the series, but all involved say it will be up to director Christopher Nolan to come to them with a story and a plan.

"There are a lot of us who emotionally would love to do it," said producer Chuck Roven. "But it's really Chris' call. Chris is the kind of filmmaker who just doesn't think about the next movie before he has completely finished the movie he is working on."

For now, Nolan is taking a well-earned vacation. "When he comes back, we will see how he feels," said Roven.

Again, everyone knows there is going to be another Batman movie while they're working on this one -- even after Batman and Robin, we knew Batman would be back. So why isn't the studio preproducing the next three and shooting them in conjunction, a la LOTR. Long form serials. Get it together.

I disagree, Kal-El. I think Warner Bros is doing exactly what they should be doing. Promote the hell out of the film for year-end awards (particularly Heath Ledger's performance) and let Chris Nolan catch his breath. We don't want the studio rushing for another sequel too quickly. The last time that happened, Batman & Robin was made. I say let them take their time to get a great script together. It's going to be tough trying to match this installment.
