Deadline recently interviewed Christopher Nolan about the Oscar buzz surrounding his summer blockbuster, Inception. Naturally he was asked about The Dark Knight Rises too, specifically why he won’t be shooting in 3D. Here’s what he had to say:

“In the case of Batman, I view those as iconic, operatic movies, dealing with larger-than-life characters. The intimacy that the 3D parallax illusion imposes isn’t really compatible with that. We are finishing our story on the next Batman, and we want to be consistent to the look of the previous films.”

Since this was an Oscar interview, Deadline also asked Nolan what Heath Ledger’s win for his portrayal of The Joker in The Dark Knight meant to him:

I was extremely gratified to see people responding to work that I knew was great. And I was very proud to have been a part in its creation, or at least in creating a world where a great artist could really show what he could do. It was a great honor to be in any way involved in that.
