Chris was reluctant to make another film
Jonathan Nolan remembers. He didn't want to be a super director.

Jonathan noted that Chris was very proud of Batman Begins, but was ready to give up the Batman character.

Jonathan remembers saying to his brother: We spent an hour telling this hero's origin story. What can we do about it? Can we take the same characters and twist them a little bit into a different genre? Can we go from an adventure film to a crime story to a mafia story and still have the same feeling?

Producer Charles Roven, Chris and I sat down together and I said, “My friend, don't be a coward. Let's do this!”Nolan adds. When the script was ready, I said, “This is going to be great. This is exciting. We have to make this movie.” In the end he agreed. He was able to avoid being categorized.

I have a few comments: We're talking about Nolan's “Batman” movie.
