In a recent interview with SFX.co.uk, Christopher Nolan’s wife and producing partner, Emma Thomas, states that Nolan will not be tempted to make a fourth Batman movie, with a firm “No. Never.” When asked if it meant “never” or “never say never again”, Thomas confirmed that it’s definitely a never, meaning Nolan will never revisit the Batman movie franchise again.
“At a certain point it’s fun to go off and do something different, you know. We’ve spent almost 10 years of our lives making Batman films. He was very excited about this film, and the story that he’d come up with, but I just cannot imagine that he would get that excited about another version of the same thing.
“The great thing about a trilogy is that it feels like you’ve got a beginning, a middle and an end. It’s like an extended version of a regular film. Once you get into a fourth film then it’s just episodic, and I just can’t see him getting excited about making another film where basically you’re just wheeling in different villains.”
