It looks like we have a minimum of twenty-four months to get worked into a frenzy over the next installment of Batman. Batman Begins 3, The Dark Knight 2: Electric Boogaloo, whatever we’re going to call it.
Aint it Cool is pointing us to a Courier Post interview with producer Michael Uslan where a definitive release date of 2011 is laid out. The date doesn’t appear in quotation marks, but it’s fair to assume that it’s accurate. Especially since it’s a safe three years away.
So far we’ve had a mole hill’s worth of statements from co-stars, producers, and people barely associated with the crew turned into mountains, but we haven’t heard a definitive date that the production is aiming for.
If they’re shooting for 2011, that means the hype machine and viral marketing campaign should get started up right around March of 2009.
