New Batman film announced

After Christopher Nolan's stirling work on this summer's thinking person's blockbuster, Inception, you'd think he might fancy a nice lie down for a year or so. Not so - he's just signed up to direct his third Batman, bringing back method man Christian Bale to star.

Nolan told The Sun, 'It's becoming inevitable, I'll put it that way. 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.'

While reports have confirmed that Bale is back in the saddle (we mean Batmobile), the identity of the villain remains a secret. Michael Caine, who will reprise his role as the butler, and confirmed that filming would 'probably start in May of next year'.
