The Dark Knight Rises and the Riddler falls for Chris Nolan

Christopher Nolan has revealed to the L.A Times that Batman 3 now has an official title: The Dark Knight Rises. And he also won’t be using a popular Batman villain: Edward Nigma, better known as The Riddler.

“It won’t be the Riddler,” Nolan said without revealing just who exactly would be the new antagonist of Batman (Christian Bale).

The sequel to The Dark Knight, the third highest grossing film of all-time, is set for release on July 20th, 2012.
