Director Christopher Nolan said "The Dark Knight Rises," his upcoming Batman movie, will be "the last chapter of our Batman saga," IGN reported Tuesday.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Nolan said: "I feel very glad that I'm doing another Batman film. I think it would have been daunting to sit down and write an original script after [the success of] 'Inception.' I love working within the realm and rules of our Batman world. It's kind of nice to have someplace to go that I'm super-excited about."
Nolan added, "I must say that I'm glad -- I'm very, very glad -- to be embarking on the last chapter of our Batman saga without any sense of obligation or duty to the studio. They did very well with 'Inception.' So I'm able to go into finishing our story in a very enthusiastic way."
"The Dark Knight Rises" reportedly starts filming in May.
