The Batman character, on whom The Dark Knight is based, was first enjoyed by readers of the classic Detective Comics (DC) in 1939. Since then, this caped superhero has become one of the most recognized and much-loved characters of all time.
Even today, millions of fans in over 60 countries around the world, still enjoy reading monthly comics featuring Batman.
In 2008 The Dark Knight movie was released, starring Christian Bale, Aaron Eckhart, and the late Heath Ledger. The film, which became the third highest-grossing film of all times in the United States, taking in over $500 million in domestic box office takings, showed how Batman, Gordon, and Harvey Dent are forced to deal with the chaos unleashed by a terrorist known as The Joker.
The Dark Knight took in $1 billion in box office takings around the world after it was released. And later this year, thanks to the Microgaming Batman slots deal, players will be able to enjoy all the action of these movies across the reels at top-notch casinos.
The upcoming The Dark Knight Rises will also be directed by Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan and will star Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman. The film is set eight years after the events of the first film and will introduce two villains from the original comic book series, Selina Kyle and Bane.
