Holy Turkish city, Batman! You're being sued!
Huseyin Kalkin, the mayor of Batman, said the theft has tormented his city's people: He blamed the city's high female suicide rate on the psychological effects of WB's theft.
The Turkish city said it wants money from the latest Batman movie, "The Dark Knight," which grossed $1 billion worldwide.
Unfortunately, this is not a joke.
But my sources tell me Warner Brothers and Mr. Kalkin might reach a deal before going to court.
Apparently, the movie studio is willing to offer Batman city $300, and it'll throw in Katie Holmes free.
Kalkin said he'd prefer Maggie Gyllenhaal, the actress who replaced Holmes, but if he had to settle for Holmes, he'd need at least $400.
WB said they'd comprise at $350, and give Kalkin a one-way ticket away from the borders of Syria and Iraq, which is probably priceless at this point.
For the record, Batman first appeared as comic book character in 1939, when Batman city was just a itty-bitty town no one's had ever heard of.
Oh wait, it's still a town no one's ever heard of.
