When it comes to Batman, the future of the franchise is in Christopher Nolan's hands. That's what a successful reboot with "Batman Begins" and breaking records with "The Dark Knight" will do.
There's a deal for the director to helm a third pic, but he has yet to decide on whether to tackle it yet.
"We have no idea where Chris is going with this," Horn says. "We haven't had any conversations with him about it."
Personally, the idea of a Batman 3 with anyone else is scary. I doubt they'd pick anyone Joel Schumacher bad (IGN has a few decent suggeststions, although David Cronenberg would figure out a way to make Batman boring), but I'm so attached to Christopher Nolan's version that I'd consider anyone else a step down. And I get that Nolan has other interests, and I wouldn't expect him to keep doing Batman movies forever, but I just really want a third one, damnit.
