Christopher Nolan will conclude his adaptation of the infamous Batman story in one of the most successful film franchises in the world. Nolan has the tremendous burden of topping his Herculean sequel, The Dark Knight, and creating a successful closure to the Batman story, a feat which has yet to be accomplished or even attempted. Nolan has chosen to finish the trilogy with Batman facing off against foes like Bane and Catwoman. A winning third installment will cement Nolan's awesome abilities in filmmaking. The Dark Knight Rises will fly into theaters July 20, 2012.
