Light the Signal, Batman The Dark Knight Returns to theaters July 20, 2012
Even with a number of animated DVD appearances, Batman, the famed caped crusader of DC Comics’ Gotham City, hasn’t been seen in a feature film since 2008’s The Dark Knight, and Batman Begins before that. That film became the then-second (now third, thanks to Avatar) highest grossing film of all time with $533 million in the US, $1 billion worldwide. Now, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, along with Christopher Nolan, have officially announced “Batman 3“, a followup sequel to the blockbuster franchise, hitting theaters, and IMAX, on July 20th, 2012. Information on the cast and plot, at this point, is nothing more than speculation, though it is assumed the core actors will reprise their roles: Christian Bale as Batman, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Caine as Alfred, etc. The date comes almost 4 years after The Dark Knight hit theaters, but a mere 2 and a half weeks after Disney and Marvel’s Spider-Man returns. Will you see them both?
