Batman or The Batman would be better and I expect the studio to reconsider once they hear the lack of buzz towards it.
I highly doubt that. WB wanted 3-D for The Dark Knight Rises
but Nolan convinced them otherwise. After the mega success of both The Dark Knight
, WB is smart not to piss Nolan off or step on his toes. If he wants to call the film The Dark Knight Rises
, then that's what it is going to be called.
