'Batman 3' may be shot entirely in IMAX, the film's director of photography Wally Pfister tells MTV News.
"I can't say until I read the script, but it would certainly be my preferred, amazing goal to shoot the whole movie in IMAX," Pfister says.
Pfister is still waiting for the script in order to figure out which direction to take the movie. Neither director Christopher Nolan nor Pfister are fans of 3-D. Pfister worked with Nolan on 'Inception,' and he's waiting for the talks to start regarding 'Batman 3.'
"I must say I'm a huge IMAX fan. I like IMAX more than I like 3-D," Pfister says. "Chris' films are so densely layered and have so much going on visually in every way that IMAX helps enhance that because of the scope and the scale of it - it becomes a much larger canvas to paint on. That's what we found on 'Dark Knight.'
"We usually have lunch and he asks me, 'Tell me what your thoughts are,' " Pfister continued. "It's very casual. It's not very technical. And then we start to build toward, 'How are we going to shoot this? Where are we going to shoot this?' My preproduction is about four months long before principal photography begins.
"I can't imagine how we're going to step it up [after 'Inception']," he added. "But we will."
