Christopher Nolan’s Batman series now includes three films. We’ll tell you whether a sequel with “The Dark Knight 4” is possible.
The “The Dark Knight” trilogy by director Christoper Nolan shows the story of the dark knight much more realistically than the Batman films by Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher. Main characters and comic roots are still clearly recognizable, but the series follows a completely different genre. The linchpin of the story is Bruce Wayne aka Batman (Christian Bale), who forges an alliance with Lieutenant Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) to defeat organized crime in Gotham. Gotham has now produced many criminal figures. One of them is the Joker (Heath Ledger). With his brilliant mind he tries to override public order and can soon gather a large following. We’ll tell you here whether Christopher Nolan lets go of other villains on Batman in “The Dark Knight 4”.
In our Video let’s show which stars almost played in comic films:
“The Dark Knight 4”: No sequel planned
The last film in “The Dark Knight” trilogy from 2012 was a few years ago and despite great success, there has been no sequel so far. The end of “The Dark Knight Rises” offered a lot of material for a possible fourth film. There is a simple reason why this has not happened so far, as Batman actor Christian Bale revealed in an interview with the Toronto Sun: “Chris had always told me that if we were lucky enough to make three films, we would quit.”
But it shouldn’t stay that way. After the success of the third film, those responsible came up with the idea to continue the series with “The Dark Knight 4”. But Bale referred to the director’s statement: “We have to hold on to Chris’ dream, which has always been to hopefully do a trilogy. Let’s not take it too far and get negligent and do a fourth.“A brave but clear decision with success. The “Dark Knight” trilogy is now one of the most popular Batman series that has ever existed.
