Not particularly impressed by that title. Guess we should now call the Nolan movies "The Dark Knight series."
That would be all right as long as they don't Re-title Begins, The Dark Knight: Batman Begins ala Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Even if that was only on the dvd packaging. I was actually hoping for The Caped Crusader even if it does sound a little cheesy.

Sounds like Batmans got a boner. Yep, I went there.

I was personally hoping for Shadow of the Bat or The Batman but Nolan never goes with the expected. Always the unexpected.

Someone on another site suggested Gotham City as a title and I liked it.
I know it could never fly as a title, but I was so, so hoping the third film would be called The Goddamn Batman.
I would love to see The Goddamn Batman billboards around town. That would be awesome.

Better than "The Caped Crusader" which sounds like it belongs to the 90s.

The Dark Knight Rises, close to the Dark Knight Returns. But seriously any news on this movie is good news.

Would liek to see Hugo Strange. Played by Tom Hardy, yeah!

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

Batman or The Batman would be better and I expect the studio to reconsider once they hear the lack of buzz towards it. Also I wanted Riddler but in a way he might seem a little similar to Joker so am not totally surprised by his exclusion.

I was just going to say that Batman Begins was a lame title.
In retrospect, sure, but at the time it seemed appropriate and in line with what came before.

I'm pretty sure I found it lame at the time, too.

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 and Inception, 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.

Curious if they are going to follow the theme that Batman inspires more and more bad guys to use theatrics and masks and shit. Or if the next bad guy will simply be someone who never acts in the night, making it impossible for Batman to fight him.

I hate to say it, my friend, but the only reason this title is unexpected is because of how lame and cliche and it is. Maybe if it's actually referring to Harvey Dent or Gotham City itself...well, it'll still be kind of cliche. Sounds to me like Nolan compromised with WB..."fine, you don't have to do 3D, but we want an easily marketable title that isn't too arty!"

Guess they didn't go with my idea of calling it "Batman Continues".

Really? "Dark Knight" screams 90's to me. Sounds like an Image title. I like Caped Crusader which was certainly used heavily in the old 60's show but still has a nice ring to it.

Also, The Riddler will NOT be the villain.
For anyone who has followed Nolan's comments, this should be of no surprise. I still think Riddler could fit well into this series (what I keep imagining is something closer to the Zodiac killer, but still), but I'm curious to see who else he comes up with.

While the Joker stole the show in the second film, the film was about Bruce Wayne (and even Harvey Dent) more. Casting the Riddler could make the series too villain-centric.

Dark Knight Rises could work. I could also have seen something with Redemption in it.
