While Inception is proving to be an intriguing prospect for this summer, Nolanphiles should anoint the following date in their diaries as Warner Bros have unveiled the day that Batman 3 will be hitting big screens – July 20th, 2012.

That’s pretty much all we know about the film so far, David Goyer is kicking around the story with the Brothers Nolan, and they can’t be too far from a first draft and as one of the most anticipated movies of the next few years you can bet they’ll be speculation aplenty until details begin to emerge.

Let’s just hope there’s not a Marvelesque casting rumour sideshow for the film’s cast. I’m sure we could all do without that.

So, July 20th, 2012 is the day – it’s also my birthday, so I know what I’ll be doing to celebrate.
