Gary Oldman Spouts Noise

In "I'm not believing this until I hear it from a legit source" news, Gary Oldman said that filming on Batman 3 will start in 2010. Keep in mind we haven't heard anything about a script being completed yet, let alone Chris Nolan signing on as the director.

Oldman's exact quote: "The next Batman is next year, so I think it's two years away." While this may seem confusing at first, I'm sure when he said Batman "is next year" he meant the filming, and the final product is "two years away."

As I said - I'm not buying into this yet. Michael Caine spouted off about how Phillip Seymour Hoffman was playing the Penguin and Johnny Depp was the Mad Hatter, and he obviously had not idea what the hell he was talking about. He admitted later that he "read it somewhere," meaning he was perusing the web like the rest of us and stumbled across the rumor, and later reported it as fact. The same could be said for Oldman - he may have heard an online rumor about the production start date and is reporting that as truth.

Then again, maybe Chris Nolan told him what's up and he just gave us all a big exclusive. Who knows? I'll keep you posted.
