Want "Dark Knight" Sequel News?

Sadly you won't find much of it for awhile, so you'll have to find a way to stay amused by tabloid rumors of Angelina Jolie and Cher playing Catwoman.

Warner Brothers is certainly eager to green-light a third film, but, for a change, a studio is being smart and waiting for the films' creators. Currently Christopher Nolan is on a much deserved break after making "Batman Begins," "The Prestige" and "The Dark Knight" right in a row. Warner Brothers won't move forward with anything until Christopher Nolan and his brother, writer Jonathan Nolan, come back with some new ideas.

So basically nothing has happened with a Batman sequel. Warner Brothers has, rightfully, decided to wait for the Nolans to come back with something and take time with the next project. That certainly makes me feel more comfortable than how I feel about the "Iron Man" sequel, which is being fast-tracked to a 2010 release.

I love how Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Wahlberg will talk smack about "The Dark Knight" to get fan boys ranting at each other and yet everyone from the Batman crew stay quiet and humble. It seems everyone knows what was the great, standout movie of this summer.

Take as much time as you need Nolans. I'll gladly wait eight years for a great movie, than two years for a mediocre one.
