Rumor: David Goyer And Jonathan Nolan Working On Third Batman Script?

You're going to be seeing this one everywhere today, so let's get it out of the way quick. In a report about David Goyer leaving FlashForward, Nikki Finke pegs script duties on the third Batman movie as one of the primary reasons he walked away. The direct quote from Goyer was pretty vague ("As my feature projects have started ramping up again, I felt I was being pulled in too many directions") and Finke spins that directly into a statement about Goyer and Jonathan Nolan writing Batman 3. ("Goyer's feature career is really heating up, since he co-wrote Batman Begins, and penned the story for The Dark Knight, and is now writing the third Batman installment with Chris Nolan's brother Jonah.")

Without any further confirmation, don't get too excited about that yet. Goyer has a lot of feature projects in the fire, and while Finke has had a lot of good info lately, this one sounds like she's spinning a broad statement into something too specific. There may be work of some sort going on, but read this one as unsubstantiated for now.
