The film draws from The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller. In The Dark Knight, Batman joins Jim Gordon and Harvey dent to fight orginized crime in the streets of Gotham. The partnership, however, pleads to the rise of a new criminal known as “The Joker.” The film will be directed by Christopher Nolan, who directed Batman Begins in 2005.
Filming is ongoing, including explosions, for The Dark Knight. If The Dark Knight is anything like Batman Begins, it will confirm that the Batman franchise is here to stay.
