Latest Dark Knight Updates

Batman-on-Film reports that a “Batman” anime project is in the works in the vein of “The Animatrix”.

A memo says that the PG-13 anthology project would consist of short stories which help bridge the gap between “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight.” It also indicates the likes of Josh Olsen (“A History of Violence”), David Goyer (“Batman Begins”), and famed comic book writer Brian Azzarello amongst others are attached to write stories for the work.

More pics and filming from “The Dark Knight” in Chicago are up and include Batpod Action, More Batpod Action and Joker preparing for a scene. There’s also talk that scribe Jonah Nolan has started work already on a first draft of “The Dark Knight” follow-up project based on the original David Goyer/Chris Nolan outline (the pair came up with outlines for three films when they penned ‘Begins’).

Finally, a new Joker site will be revealed in September, releasing new images from the film. The first trailer with footage is expected to be attached to “I Am Legend”.
