Bat-Timeline – Batman in 2012



The epic “Court of Owls” storyline in BATMAN by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo came to a conclusion.

BATMAN: EARTH ONE (Vol. 1) by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank was released.

The second volume of Grant Morrison’s BATMAN, INCORPORATED is included in DC’s New 52 with issue #1 dropping in September.


Part 1 of THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS animated film is released in September.


LEGO BATMAN 2: DC SUPERHEROES video game is released.


THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, the final installment of director Christopher Nolan’s DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY, is released in July.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES starred Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Tom Hardy as Bane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate/Talia, and Michael Cain as Alfred.

RISES earned $1,084,939,099 worldwide making it the #2 film at box office in 2012.


For me, Batman 2012 is all about THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.  What a great ending to a great Batman trilogy.  Or should that be a great Bruce Wayne trilogy?

Comic book-wise, I was all-in from the get-go with BATMAN by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo.
