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?
