Christopher Nolan started his Batman trilogy with Batman Begins in 2006, which continued with the hit The Dark Knight in 2008 and closed with The Dark Knight: The Legend Reborn in 2012.
As revealed by Nolan in an interview for THR , this space of two and four years between films is a privilege that not many can have. For example, Ben Affleck has had to give life to Batman three times in less than two years ( Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice , Suicide Squad and Justice League ), something that causes fatigue in the viewer, increases the pressure and reduces the creative capacity.
“It is a privilege and a luxury that directors can not have anymore. I think it was the last time anyone could say to a studio, ‘I could do another, but it will be our years from now’. There’s too much pressure on premiere agendas to let people do that now, but creatively it’s a huge advantage. We had the privilege and the advantage of developing as people and as storytellers and then bringing the big family together again.”
