After the three-part series of Batman, the famous DC character that every DC fan is gaga over, the fans are now living with the expectation of Dark Knight 4.
The three-part series consists of Batman Begins which was released in the year 2005, the second being The Dark Knight which was released in 2008, and lastly, The Dark Knight Rises which was released in the year 2012.
The series gained a huge fan base and has percolated through the hearts of every DC fan in the past few years since the first movie was released.
But what made the movie reach the level of a brilliant movie was the excellent manner in which Christopher Nolan had captured the essence of the original storyline of the Batman comics. He had done a good job at directing and casting the apt members who were a perfect fit for the role.
Will Christopher Nolan be making another one in the series?
The answer is, no, we will not be seeing another movie by Christopher Nolan in this Trilogy. Both Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan seem to be walking away from the idea of another movie.
While all this time, fans were eager to know whether the series is going to continue or is it going to come to an end, Nolan and Bale both have finally decided that it’s time to walk away from the movie rather than juicing out every inch of the storyline till it saturates.
Why isn’t there another movie coming out in the series?
Like any other professional and real artist, Bale and Nolan both realized that there is a saturation level to every movie. In fact, they wanted to avoid what the movie ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ was criticized for, and that was for being overindulgent.
Bale said that he also wanted to honor the wishes of Nolan which was to initially stick to just making one movie and that was what they thought they had the capacity for. But they were fortunate enough to see the movie be a hit and ended up making two more in the series.
However, it seems that Nolan had the idea of a Trilogy in his mind from the start. But nonetheless, both the actor and the director have finally moved on from the series and have subtly dropped the mic on The Batman Series. The saga ends here with its effect still prevalent over the mass of DC fans.
Will There Ever be a Dark Knight 4?
The straightforward answer is No. The possibility of Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale returning for Dark Knight 4 is next to impossible. This is because both the director and actor of the series have denied following The Dark Knight Rises with another movie. The reason they have provided is that The Story of Batman is Complete and there is nothing more they could add to the story.
