Dark Knight’ sequel gets official release date
LOS ANGELES - Warner Bros. has set July 20, 2012, as the release date for the third Christopher Nolan-directed Batman movie.
The studio has barely begun the process of developing the movie, which isn’t yet titled. Nolan is in postproduction on the sci-fi thriller “Inception,” which opens July 16, but is hammering out a story with David Goyer.
With Batman 3 on the docket, summer 2012 is shaping up to be one of the greater geek movie seasons. Marvel’s “The Avengers” is slated to come out May 4, board-game adaptation “Battleship” leaves port May 25, the “Star Trek” sequel beams up June 29, and the rebooted “Spider-Man” swings into theaters July 3.
