While attending the Producers Guild of America's Produced By conference, Nolan explained why he refused to create the fourth Caped Crusader film and opened up about how he built the film series, reported Ace Showbiz.
"No. I don't want to hold anything back. I always envisioned the Batman tale as a trilogy, resulting in Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises," Nolan said.
