Third Nolan Batman Date Set, 2012 to be Bat-tastic
Tip of the hat to The Hollywood Reporter for letting us know that the third installment of Chris Nolan’s Batman franchise will be hitting theaters July 20th, 2012. So long as the Mayans and Jon Cusak were wrong, and that the Earth is still in tact… consider the date iCal-able. July of course seems to be Nolan’s lucky month, as we all recall The Dark Knight was released July 18th of 2008, and his new thriller Inception will be gracing the multiplex July 16th of this year.
2012 is quickly becoming a huge year for us fanboys. In addition to Nolan’s unnamed Bat-sequel, a bevvy of heavy hitters will debut. First out of the gates will be Marvel’s Avengers assembling May 4th, 2012, followed by board-game turned blockbuster Battleship on May 25th. Shortly after that the next launch of the Starship Enterprise (in the J.J. Abrams reboot-a-verse) will be with a Star Trek sequel on June 29th. And one week later? Set your phasers to THWIP! as the Spider-Man reboot swings into place on July 3rd.
Well, there went about 100 bucks in tickets, popcorn, and milk duds.
