While the Nolan Batman films have done many terrific things with the film franchise, one of the best things about the two films is how well the Nolans and David Goyer have been able to choose the correct supporting characters to inhibit their Batman Universe. Mainly the villains; each villain they have chosen has carried much more dramatic weight and meaning to the films. After Christopher Nolan's announcement that The Riddler will not be in the upcoming film, The Dark Knight Rises, many fans now are scratching their heads wonder who will be villain?
Well before I run down the…

Not even a month after director, Christopher Nolan officially confirmed that he would return to direct a third Batman film back in September, within the following days a group of rather intriguing rumors began to surface.
Dating all the way back to August, the first rumor to reach the internet was when several websites learned that Batman 3 was to begin shooting in April of 2011 in the city of New Orleans. One speculated reason for this is that Warner Bros. would like to take advantage of the tax incentives that the city has offered after they have formed a…

SuperHeroHype has posted an article stating that they have learned that Batman 3 will begin shooting in April in New Orleans.
This should be taken with a grain of salt right now until Warner Bros. confirms this. We know that WB was scouting locations in Chicago for Batman 3 over six months ago. Also, New Orleans seems to be the hot spot for filming lately so Batman could be grouped into that.
Chris Nolan does not like to use CG if not necessary. So why would he film in a city that doesn't have a skyline that matches what we…
