Who Should Direct The Next BATMAN?

By AMC June 7, 2012

Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy will officially come to completion when "The Dark Knight Rises" opens in AMC Theatres on July 20th. Given the speed with which Sony began to develop  a "Spider-Man" reboot once Sam Raimi's trio staring Toby Maguire was complete (just four years later) it seems likely that we will see a brand new series of "Batman" films in the not to distant future. Particularly given the financial success of the Nolan helmed films.

In light of the likely reboot. the AMC Movie News team got together for a friendly debate about which director should follow in Nolan's path.

Take a look at the video and the synopsis for "The Dark Knight Rises" below.
