Batman 3 script is finished and there's no Joker

Today in bittersweet news, Christopher Nolan has confirmed that the script for Batman 3 is finished and the Joker will not appear. While the Joker is one of the best recurring villains in the Batman series, Nolan has long expressed discomfort over the idea of recasting the Joker. 

"For me, Heath [Ledger] was the definitive Joker. It wouldn't feel appropriate to readdress that character."

In The Dark Knight, which premiered months after Ledger's death in January 2008, Nolan did not kill off the legendary character. No new villains have been confirmed, but if they are half as well written and performed as Ledger's Joker, we're in for a treat. 

Nolan's newest film, Inception, hits theaters this Friday. I can't wait to see it.
