Christopher Nolan Reinventing Batman 4


picThe Dark Knight Rises has not even began filming and we are already receiving word that "#4" is on the way.

This should really come to no surprise, but what is - is that the director on the "Dark Knight" series of Batman movies will be on as producer along with, wife Emma Thomas.

Jeff Robinov, who has been currently making his rounds (Justice League Movie) is going to be the new Warner Bros. studio president, informed the LA Times Hero Complex just that.

That's not all, as Robinov said they will have to "reinvent" Batman.

"We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman…Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”

In previous reports, Christopher Nolan has stated that he was finished with Batman after The Dark Knight Rises, however when asked about producing played coy.

"Reinvent" Batman for the Justice League 2013 movie with a new actor? Possibly.

It will certainly be difficult to surpass Nolan's trio of Bat-flicks - let alone match them, but it's a good thing he is still connected to Batman.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th, 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christan Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane and Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.
