- IESB is claming that Christopher Nolan's involvement with the next Superman movie is two-fold: Nolan's brother (and Dark Knight co-writer) Jonah will direct the Superman film which will lead to Christopher Nolan directing a Justice League film after the third Batman. I find this hard to believe for two reasons: it would be a giant risk to hand a major franchise like Superman to a first time director, and Nolan and others have said that the Batman of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight exists in a world with no other superheroes, so doing a Justice League movie would seem off. But we'll see, I guess.
- Speaking of Superman, a high quality issue of his first appearance, Action Comics #1, sold for $1 million recently. But, proving once again that Batman is superior, a copy of Detective Comics #27, Batman's first appearance, sold for $1.075 million.
- Topless Robot has a list of crazy foreign knock-off movies, including a pretty terrible Turkish Batman one.
- Io9 lists 75 DC comics you should own for DC's 75th anniversary. I disagree about A Death in the Family (I'd get Arkham Asylum or The Long Halloween or a second copy of Year One instead) but the rest of the Batman stuff (and the rest of the list in general) is pretty good.
