Warner Brothers, the studio behind the summer blockbuster, is banking on it, launching an aggressive campaign to get the conclusion of director Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy into the Oscar conversation.

Nolan himself, notoriously shy when it comes to participating in the annual awards-show horse race, is even shilling for the cause. On Wednesday, he caved to years of requests and participated in a Film Comment Selects Q&A at Lincoln Center in New York, offering a detailed retrospective on his Batman series.
