New details have been released regarding the much anticipated new installment of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman series. A title has been decided on, production is rumored scheduled to begin March of 2011 and Nolan has recently revealed his thoughts on Hollywood’s latest obsession, 3D, and if 3D has a place in Batman 3.

The Dark Knight Rises is to be the third installment of Nolan’s now near prolific series about the caped crusader. The script is being finalized now with both Nolan and his brother coming back to pen the movie.

Given the critical and commercial success of both previous movies, it is no surprise that Christopher Nolan hasn’t wasted much time putting together the movie. Fresh off of his most recent blockbuster, Inception, the director is pursuing production of Dark Knight Rises with vigor.

It remains to be seen what the line up of actors will be for The Dark Knight Rises. Actor Tom Hardy is rumored to be cast as Det. Harvey Bullock. Batman veterans Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman and Michael Caine are all to reprise their roles. The villain in the The Dark Knight Rises has still not been revealed but Nolan has confirmed that it will not be the Riddler.

Nolan has recently gone on the record to say that Dark Knight Rises will not see a 3D release and will not be shot in the format at all. Citing a desire to complete the story he and his brother started and that the franchise would continue with the status quo established by the first two, saying, "Our ambitions are to make a great movie."

The Dark Knight Rises is set for release on July 20, 2012 in time to potentially make a big splash at the summer box office.
