Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is proud of his movie, but there's one major special effect that he's not happy with. Christopher Nolan is handing Superman over to Zack Snyder, and he won't say no to another Inception. Spoilers forever!
Director Joseph Kosinski discusses the special effects of the movie, admitting that the de-aged Jeff Bridges as Clu doesn't quite work:
I feel like ... um, honestly I feel like Clu, I don't think he's at 100 percent in 100 percent of the shots. But I feel like there's a couple glimpses in there, especially during Clu's speech in the Rectifier, [that] I'm really happy with. For a moment, you buy this thing as a real character, which to me is exciting. I just don't think that's been done before.
And here's a video detailing the creation of the light bike with designer Daniel Simon: [/Film]
The Dark Knight Rises
We already told you this rumor was unlikely to have any truth whatsoever, but now Warner Bros sources are apparently vehemently denying any possibility of a Joker cameo, using old Heath Ledger footage and/or CG. And, of course, there's the fact that Christopher Nolan was already very definite about not doing it. [Moviefone]
Nolan also recently reaffirmed that this will be his last Batman film, describing it as "the last chapter of our Batman saga." [EW]
Christopher Nolan's producer (and wife) Emma Thomas says they, along with screenwriter David Goyer, are now turning their attentions to The Dark Knight Rises and their input into the rest of the Superman film will be minimal. She explains they wanted to complete a good screenplay and explore an idea Warner Bros had not previously considered, but now it's Zack Snyder's movie. [Hitfix]
Longtime Christopher Nolan composer Hans Zimmer will be scoring the movie. [Thompson on Hollywood]
I doubt we'll be busting out this tag again anytime soon, but Christopher Nolan does say he wants the world of Inception to continue. Right now, his main efforts in that direction are an original video game, which he says he's begun developing. As for the possibility of an actual film sequel, he certainly didn't rule it out:
"As for [movie] sequels, it's not something I want to say no to, but it's not something I've given a lot of thought about."
There Will Be Blood actor Paul Dano is reportedly in talks to join Brick director Rian Johnson's time-travel thriller, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis as a time travelling assassin at different points in his life. [Variety]
Looks like we'll be waiting a little while longer for a sequel - director Reuben Fleischer is reportedly negotiating to take on another movie as his next project, which would push back any potential start date for the next Zombieland. [Deadline]

We're probably not finding that out quite yet, but stay tuned. I think you'll get really great clues in the coming season.
He also seems to deny the rumors about an episode filmed in Egypt (although that doesn't rule out a story set in Egypt), and says the bifurcated season was done for specific story reasons, and won't necessarily be what they do for series seven and onward. [Crave Online]
