Everyone wants to know what is next for Batman following the success of The Dark Knight - wondering who will return, and almost as importantly, who the villains will be for Batman's next outing. Well, our friends at IESB managed to talk to producer Chuck Roven about the film, and got confirmation about a few details for the new film.
When asked about the direction that the script is going in, Roven said "The creative driver of the project at this point is Chris [Nolan]. There's really nothing more for me to say about that. When he feels that he's got something to talk about, then we'll be able to talk about it." Asked whether or not he knew who the villain would be, even if he couldn't discuss it, Roven smiled and laughed "I really don't want to talk about that project right now."
Not exactly a denial about whether he knows or not, so it certainly seems possible that Nolan and writer David Goyer have a villain already in mind. And just as importantly, it confirms that a sequel to The Dark Knight is in the works. So, let the speculation about who the villain would be, and who will play said villain, begin!
