With just one week to go before it’s release, some very interesting news has just dropped regarding the highly anticipated third installment of the The Dark Knight saga. As it turns out, Frank Miller will have little or no input on the story or it’s art, leaving writing duties solely to Brian Azzarello.
In an interview with Newsarama, Miller was asked if he always knew how the story would play out, to which he replied:
It is in Brian Azzarello’s hands right now, and I thoroughly applaud what he’s doing. But now that he’s doing his, it’s now a four-part series. I’m doing the fourth.
Which brings us to the second piece of news to come out of this interview; namely, a fourth part to the saga, which Miller will start sometime in the new year.
We are also given a few nuggets of information regarding some of the characters involved, with seemingly more focus being placed on women this time around, with Wonder Woman, her child, Carrie Kelley, and Superman’s daughter Lara, all taking prominent roles.
So, does this news change your view on The Dark Knight III? Are you happy that Miller has less involvement? Or do you feel cheated that it was promoted and sold as a MIller story?
Sound off in the comments, folks!
