Today, we learned several new tidbits about the franchise’s next installment – which, from this point on, we will officially call The Dark Knight Rises.

In an interview with Hero Complex, Nolan said the villain played Jim Carrey in 1995 would not be included in this feature. Unfortunately, he didn’t drop any other hints about Batman’s future nemesis.

Christopher did, though, disclose news on the technology front. Nolan, who has openly discussed his feelings about 3D, said the movie will not require use of those annoying glasses. The film will instead be shot with IMAX cameras like sections of The Dark Knight were.

The Dark Knight Rises on July 20, 2012.
