There are just too many bad guys in Gotham City for Batman to retire. And we just got word today that The Dark Knight sequel is a go!
The bad news is that we still have to wait another two years for it. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers has just decided it’s well worth it to get Christian Bale back into that bat suit. The sequel will fly into theaters on July 20th, 2012.
Christopher Nolan is back on board as director, and there’s talk that this installment of the franchise will focus on the Riddler character. (Please be Johnny Depp!!!)
Sources tell EW that the title of the next flick will be Gotham City. And it’s already got its competition cut out—here’s what else is lined up for summer’12: The Avengers (May 4), Battleship (May 25), Star Trek 2 (June 29), and Spider-Man 4 (July 3).
Talk about a comic-tastic summer!
