chris-nolan-breakdown-thumb.jpgThe geeks truly have taken over the world. Hot on the heels of the news that James Cameron is planning to make two Avatar sequels, comes actual news about Christopher Nolan's next Batman sequel. The director tells Hero Complex that his third foray into Gotham City will be called -- drumroll, please -- The Dark Knight Rises. Huh. Guess Batman Returns was taken. Nolan also reveals that the main villain won't be The Riddler, meaning you can begin anew your Tom Hardy character speculation. Enjoy! [LAT/Hero Complex]
