Emotional Christopher Nolan sad to leave Batman

Tuesday December 13, 2011

Christopher Nolan has admitted to feeling emotional during the final scenes of his last Batman outing, The Dark Knight Rises.

The third instalment in his rebooted series, starring Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader, is expected to be the last one for the 41-year-old British filmmaker and his leading man. 

The director told Hero Complex: "I tend not to be too emotional on the set, I find that doesn't help me do my job.

"But you definitely get a little lump in your throat thinking that, 'OK, this is going to be the last time we're going to be doing this'. It's been quite a journey.

Christopher is keeping the storyline close to his chest, but says he was searching for a story that would deliver a true finale and close the trilogy in a powerful and definitive way.
