Christopher Nolan to Princeton graduates: ‘You’re already better than Batman’

Warner Bros.

This past Monday, Christopher Nolan spoke to Princeton’s graduating class at their commencement ceremony. The Dark Knight Trilogy director even ended his speech with a joke about Batman Begins:

“The most important thing about Bruce Wayne — yes, he attended Princeton, but he didn’t graduate,” he said to roaring applause. “So as of tomorrow, you are all already better than Batman!”

Nolan is of course referring to a scene in Batman Begins where Bruce Wayne comes home from Princeton to attend the hearing for his parents killer, and informs Alfred that he will not be heading back to school when it’s over.


All jokes aside, Nolan gave a really good speech to the Princeton graduates. Head on over to The Hollywood Reporter to read some of the highlights.
