Christopher Nolan's third Batman film is titled "The Dark Knight Rises." As far as who the main villain will be, it's NOT the Riddler. That's about all we know so far. [ Hero Complex]

Huzzah! Let's celebrate with elevensies! After rigorous negotiations, "The Hobbit" movies will indeed stay and be filmed in New Zealand. This will fill the country's coffers, get lots of perks for studio shooting there and of course please the fans and Peter Jackson. [ Deadline]
