“The Dark Knight Rises” is the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, but is there a chance that Nolan might eventually return to Gotham City? In a new interview with Gary Oldman, the “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” actor spoke about the possibility of future Batman movies and the level of involvement we might be able to expect from him and Nolan.
“For us I think it’s the end. Whether they will make more, my guess is probably,” he told Crave Online. “I mean, they don’t have ’Potter’ anymore. So, there could be a ’Batman 4’ and ’5.’ It may be Chris overseeing it in a producorial position, but for us and for Chris I think that’s it. It’s a great way to go out though. It’s a great story. Epic, epic thing it is.”
If that’s it for Oldman and Gotham City, then perhaps Steve Buscemi might pick up Gordon’s torch? He’s got the experience…
In a separate interview, Oldman spoke with Moviefone about where we’ll find Jim Gordon when “Dark Knight Rises” begins.
“We find him — obviously I can’t give too much away because I’m sworn to secrecy — but when we meet him, things are calmer in Gotham. It’s reminiscent of the Gordon that we met in the first one. There’s a world-weariness to him, and even though things on the surface are now calmer, he’s cleaned up Gotham with the Harvey Dent Act, it’s seething underneath.”
The Harvey Dent Act, eh? That’s very interesting…
