When a film is as big a hit as THE DARK KNIGHT, the weird lawsuits are going to come out of the woodwork.
Few are as weird as this one. The mayor of the city of Batman, Turkey, has told the press he is preparing a suit against Warner Brothers and TDK director Christopher Nolan for, er, using the city's name without permission. The mayor reportedly wants to blame unsolved murders and female suicides on the film's success's psychological impact on the Batmanians.
No word on where the mayor will file the suit. In fact, a WB rep says the studio hasn't seen a lawsuit. Could be there'll never be one.
Obviously, Wayne Enterprises needs to swoop in and simply buy the city. That'll settle things.
