Who is really shocked by the fact that Christopher Nolan is directing Batman 3? We’ve been well aware that he’s producing the film and his younger brother is penning the script but he never came out and said that he was directing. According to Empire, Nolan decided it was time to state the obvious to the public and tell us all what we want to hear…

Nolan stated, “It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way,” says Nolan. “I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it.

And just in case you didn’t catch it the first time, he flat out said, “I think you can at this point, yes.” There you have it. He also went on to say that he’s currently putting in his two cents on the script now that his brother has a decent draft written up. But he gave no info regarding the story, because he continues to keep that locked in a box, wrapped in a blanket, buried under ground. This is one secretive man.

Production on Batman 3 is said to begin sometime in May of 2011.

Are you relieved that Nolan has confirmed that he’s directing Batman 3?
