In an interview with Empire, Chris Nolan confirms what we’ve all assumed for so long…he’s coming back to direct Batman 3! Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

“It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way,” says Nolan. “I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it.”

Hang on, that’s not 100% clear: so we can safely assume you’re directing?

“I think you can at this point, yes.”

So there you have it! Straight from Chris’ mouth…he’s coming back to direct the next Batman movie. Nolan confirmed last week that he’s currently adding to the script that his brother Jonathan turned in. Look for Warner Bros. to issue a press release later this year, making all this news “official”.
