‘Batman 3′ Gets a Release Date

Fear not, Bat-fans; all of the attention might be on the upcoming Iron Man 2 these days, but the Caped Crusader is definitely coming back to the big screen.

Warner Bros. has announced that the third installment of the revamped Batman franchise will be released on July 20, 2012. Aside from the fact that Christian Bale will be reprising the role of Batman and Christopher Nolan will be directing, other details—you know, little things like title and plot—are still unknown.

Nolan is said to be currently hashing out a storyline for the movie, which will be the first Batman movie since 2008’s The Dark Knight.
