About the film: The title "The Dark Knight Rises" is the upcoming Christopher Nolan film known as Batman 3. Based on the DC Comics character Batman, the film will be the third and final installment in Nolan's Batman film series. The film is scheduled for theatrical release on July 20, 2012 by Warner Bros.
Pre-Production Review: If you love the film The Dark Knight then I guess we will all love this next film. Well this is because the film makers are making sure that this next film will be much better than the last one. They are very secretive about this film and they even find it hard to name this film, which later took the title "The Dark Knight Rises". They may have not told the public what the film is all about but the title itself already give us some clue about this film. "Rises" in the title simply means that Batman will be back on the hood. As you can recall in the last film, it seems like Bruce Wayne already quit being Batman as they destroyed some of Batman's stuff, but then of course there will be NO The Dark Knight Rises if Batman will not return.
The big question in this upcoming film is who are the villains. They keep saying who are not the villains, so if you know all enemies of Batman then you can guess who might be the next nemesis in this film and try eliminating from your list The Penguin, The Joker, Dr. Freeze, The Riddler. Batman had a handful of enemies so I think you can now guess who it is.
About the Robin character, well Christian Bale one condition when he signed-up for this film is "there should be no Robin". I also agree if I am Bale. In the previous Batman films before Bale, I think one of the factors that flop such films is by introducing another heroes. So I for me, as long as they keep Robin and Batgirl off this film, they'll stay boxing the office!!!

News & Updates:
Security is always tight around movie scripts nowadays as there is always a chance it could leak onto the internet. The script for The Dark Knight Rises, easily one of the most anticipated films of 2012, is no doubt locked inside a vault somewhere, but to ensure nobody leaks the ending director Christopher Nolan is keeping it in an even safer place. His brain.
Absolute Radio recently interviewed Gary Oldman, who plays Commissioner Gordon, and he spoke about the security surrounding the film, working with Tom Hardy (Bane), and said he expects to start shooting in May.

Warner Bros. president of production Jeff Robinov had hoped a third film would be released in 2011 or 2012. Nolan wanted the story for the third installment to keep him emotionally invested. "On a more superficial level, I have to ask the question," he reasoned, "how many good third movies in a franchise can people name?" He returned out of finding a necessary way to continue the story, but feared midway through filming he would find a sequel redundant. By December 2008, Nolan completed a rough story outline, before he committed himself to Inception. Later in December, Alan F. Horn confirmed that while discussions with Nolan about a third film were ongoing, no casting had been done, and Horn denied all such rumors.
Before Nolan confirmed his involvement, Gary Oldman had said he was confident Nolan would return. Nolan explained that as long as he is directing, Robin will not be appearing in the franchise because Christian Bale is still portraying a "young Batman," which meant "Robin's not for a few films." In addition, Nolan considers the Penguin difficult to portray on film, explaining, "There are certain characters that are easier to mesh with the more real take on Batman we're doing. The Penguin would be tricky."
Oldman, while taking questions from an audience at the 2009 San Diego Comic Con, was asked about a third film, to which he replied, "We start shooting next year. You didn't hear that from me." He subsequently clarified his comment, saying, "... well, I'm sure they want to do another one... it might 2 or 3 years." However, in 2009, Michael Caine had told MTV News that the film was not being worked on and he did not know any details. On February 9, 2010, it was announced that Nolan has "cracked" the story of a sequel to The Dark Knight and has committed to return to that project. In February 2010, work on the screenplay was commencing with David S. Goyer and Jonathan Nolan.
