It does not come out for a whole year, but that is not stopping Warner Bros. Pictures from releasing a movie poster for it now.  "The Dark Knight Rises" is the 3rd Batman movie to be directed by Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale as the caped crusader straight out of the DC Comics made famous by Bob Kane.

Falling skyscrapers in the shape of the bat.  Hmm.  This Dark Knight will be different as he will be a wanted man by the police for the "murder" of Two-Face, Harvey Dent.  Although no one knew the monster that Dent became as to protect him.  There is no actual guarantee that Dent is actually dead either.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been chosen for the role of "The Riddler" although Nolan will still not confirm that is the role that Joseph has been cast for.  They were first looking for Johnny Depp to play the role of the Riddler but I think Gordon-Levitt is perfect.  Levitt stared with the late Heath Ledger in the movie "10 Things I Hate About You" so there is a connection between the stars and the Dark Knight Trilogy.

The movie also stars Anne Hathaway (Who is very excited to be attached to the filming and blown away during the first few weeks of filming) and Oscar winner Marion Cotillard.   Also in the movie will be Liam Neeson, , Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Juno Temple, and Morgan Freeman.

It may not open until July 20th, 2012 but the Doc is looking forward to making sure he has no surgeries or appointments that day.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Will Crush Transformers 3 Records Quickly

Update: Levitt Is Playing The Role Of Alberto Falcone

This is one of the most motarded (Something more than retarded) lawsuits of all time...seriously.

The mayor of a southeastern City in Turkey is suing Warner Bros, Christian Bale, and Christopher Nolan for royalties from "The Dark Knight".  The reason?  The city is named Batman.  Somewhere, the Joker is laughing. 

Huseyin Kalkan, the mayor of Batman, (not the comic, the city, Robin) had this to say:

"There is only one Batman in the world," Kalkan said. "The American producers used the name of our city without informing us."

Let's see... the first Batman big-screen movie blockbuster was made in 1989.  The classic Batman TV series  started in 1966.  The comic by Bob Kane debuted in 1939.  1939!  You guys are only 69 years late.  Could this have something to do with the last movie grossing over a billion dollars world-wide?  I'll bet my utility belt on it.

He is also trying to place the blame of unsolved murders and a high female suicide rate on the Caped Crusader of Gotham City.  They say they also have trouble doing business abroad because of the city's name. 

The mayor of Loonytown is attempting to gain evidence that the city's name predates Bob Kane's 1939 Batman debut.  Spider-Man and Superman, beware!  The crazy people could be after you next. 

Will Batman & DC win against this Joker of a mayor?

Will Batman have to change his name to Man-Bat or a Bat of a man?

Stay tuned!  Same Funkenberry website.  Same Doctor.-Dr.FB
