No one can escape it
Although Christopher Nolan is one of the most influential film directors in Hollywood, Warner Bros is about to remind him who's the boss. The studio is reportedly going to insist that Nolan shoot the next Batman flick in 3D.

Nolan has gone on record saying he hates the over-saturation of 3D movies and wants nothing to do with it. With his latest movie, Inception, he insisted it not get converted into 3D for its theatrical debut.
He won that battle, at least for now. But he's apparently no longer the one who gets to make that call. Check out this quotation from an IGN report on this story:
"Prevailing opinions at Warner are that Nolan will not enjoy the luxury of taking a pass on 3D for the new Batman movie, which will surely be set up for 3D from the beginning."
Not only does it make sense for Warner to release such a high-profile film in 3D, because it will be the third of Nolan's Batman movies they'll be able to do the terrible thing every studio has done whenever they can - use the "3D" in its title. Yep, we expect it to be called Batman 3D instead of just Batman 3. Ugh.
Anyway, we're kind of glad to see Warner Bros strong-arming its position here. There's nothing worse than big-headed directors who think they're too good for what viewers actually want. Now, Batman in 3D...think about that. Cool, right?
