While finishing up a panel promoting his new film "The Book of Eli" at Comic-Con in San Diego today, Gary Oldman broke some massive news regarding Christopher Nolan's "Batman" franchise.

When asked by a fan when the next movie would start filming, Oldman stunned the crowd by actually answering the question.

"The next 'Batman' is shooting next year. It's at least two years away," Odlman says.

Then realizing what he may have caused by answering, Goldman joked, "But you didn't hear it from me."

Oldman received critical acclaim for his role as Commissioner Gordon in both "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight."
