Batman 3, did Oldman spill the beans?
Alas, someone was bound to ask a Batman question at Comic-Con, but when Gary "Commissioner Gordon" Oldman was asked about a third film, was he being honest? Here's what Quint over at AICN had to say (and add)...
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I'm still in the middle of the Warner Bros panel, but this one little bit of news I need to drop here.
Gary Oldman was on the panel for THE BOOK OF ELI (which looks really cool, by the way) and was asked about when the next Batman movie is coming out. Surprisingly, Oldman was open. He said he thinks they shoot next year, so look for the next BATMAN flick to come out the year after 2011 (his words).
"But you didn't hear it from me," with a laugh.
I'm sitting down with Oldman today and will follow-up.
Thought you'd want to know.
I just interviewed Oldman and he back-peddled a bit on it, going from sure to the movie filming next year on the panel to a more "well, I'm sure they want to do another one... it might 2 or 3 years..." I'll have the exact quote for you in my interview, which I hope to have up tomorrow, but maybe them horses need holdin'. Or maybe he slipped and got an earful from Warners. What do you folks think?
