It has already been stated by director Christopher Nolan, that The Dark Knight Rises will complete his Batman trilogy and he will no longer direct the Batman movies. Therefore, Warner Bros. have decided that they will once again reboot the Batman franchise with a new director.
However, one person who is not so eager to leave the Batman movie series behind him is Michael Caine, who plays Alfred the butler. Michael explained, "I think it will be the last Batman that Chris Nolan will make. I never say the last time for me for anything."
It is not yet known who the new Batman
director will be and if they will even want Michael Caine
involved in the movie but he is keen to continue portraying the role. The Dark Knight Rises
is set to hit cinemas in both the US and the UK on July 20, 2012.
