Jonathan Nolan calls ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ bittersweet

Christopher Nolan’s brother Jonathan has played a big part in bringing Batman to the big screen over the past several years. Jonathan wrote the screenplay for The Dark Knight and more recently, The Dark Knight Rises. Hero Complex caught up with him last week to talk about his new CBS television show, Person of Interest, but naturally The Dark Knight Rises became a topic of discussion. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

Speaking of the big screen, can you tell us a little about what to expect from “The Dark Knight Rises”?

There’s a little team of Warner Bros. ninjas that follow me around. If I open my mouth, they’ll be like, “Quiet!” and pop! A little poison dart.

How does it feel after years of working on this franchise to be almost at the end of it?

It’s bittersweet. It’s been the last nine years of my life. It’s very exciting, and we’re happy to be finishing the story, but I’m going to miss that character. I’m very excited to have been building this kind of universe that we’re all putting together in New York. I think it’s very distinct from the Batman franchise, but it has a couple of elements in common, so I’m excited to be able to continue telling these stories.

I think it’s bittersweet for a lot of us! Check out the full interview at the source link.
