There is exciting news for all Dark Knight Trilogy fans: Jonathan Nolan, the series’ co-writer, has expressed enthusiasm about returning for a potential fourth Installment. Jonathan wrote for all three films in the trilogy alongside his brother, Christopher Nolan, and screenwriter David S. Goyer.

In 2005 came the Batman Begins, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale. The film follows the story of a young Bruce Wayne who grapples with the trauma of his parent’s murder, which drives him to adopt the persona of a vigilante in a bid to safeguard Gotham City. Following the success of the film, Nolan returned to direct two further installments through the release of The Dark Knight in 2008 and The Dark Knight Rises in 2012, with Bale reprising his role in both films. Both the sequels earned over $1 billion worldwide, making Batman the second film franchise to have two of its films earn more than $1 billion worldwide.

Referred to as “Dark Knight Trilogy,” the critical acclaim and commercial success of Nolan’s films have been credited with restoring widespread popularity to the superhero, with the second installment considered one of the best superhero movies of all time.

Will there be a fourth installment to the Dark Knight series?

The “Dark Knight Rises” is the latest movie in the Dark Knight series and the concluding installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. While the ending was quite satisfactory, the co-writer of the film seems to have plans to expand the trilogy.

During an interview with SHOWSHA,  Jonathan Nolan shared his sentiments, describing how returning to the world of The Dark Knight Trilogy would be a dream come true. In the same interview, it was also mentioned that even the Batman actor Christian Bale expressed his enthusiasm in a conversation with ScreenRant that he would be keen to reprise his role if Christopher Nolan were to direct again.

Meanwhile, Nolan recounted his decade-long journey with the franchise, highlighting the exceptional cast and the iconic status of the films. He stated,

 “Wouldn’t that be a dream. That period was about 10 years of my life, from when I got the call to work on Batman Begins in 2003 to putting out The Dark Knight Rises In 2012 and it was epic. The chance to work Christian, Heath, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and the extraordinary cast of those films. A sort of American icon. So, if I had the chance to go back and work on that again, absolutely.”

Since there is no official news regarding the fourth installment of the Dark Knight Trilogy, let’s consider Nolan’s statement as a hypothetical vision. Though, if it were to come true someday, it would be more than thrilling for any Batman fan.
