When asked by Empire if he would be helming the third instalment of the Caped Crusader franchise, the filmmaker behind Batman Begins and The Dark Knight replied: "It's becoming inevitable, I'll put it that way - I feel myself falling into it, I guess, and getting it all figured out and I'm pretty excited about what we're doing so..."

He concluded: "If I haven't announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I'm doing it. I think you can [assume] at this point, yes."

Michael Caine - who plays butler Alfred - has also spilled a few beans about the forthcoming film, which will see Christian Bale reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman.

He told the Chris Moyles Show that the film "will probably start in May next year" and revealed that Christopher and co-writer brother Jonathan are keeping tight-lipped about the lead villain.

Following Christopher's confirmation that he will not be bringing back the Joker, portrayed by the late Heath Ledger, speculation is rife that the Riddler - possibly played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt - would be Batman's main arch-nemesis.
