Gotham City's mayor passes The Dent Act in response to Harvey Dent's death

We're one short month away people. One more month until Christopher Nolan's THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is unleashed upon the world. Can you believe the IMax midnight showing for this shite is already sold-out? Now I'll have to wait all day to see it... I suppose since we've waited this long what's one more day, right?

But enough of my belly-aching. Let's get to today's update, which just so happens to be more viral goodness from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. You see, the guys over at ComicBookMovies got their hands on a new document from the city offices of Gotham City. It seems Mayor Anthony Garcia has gone and passed The Dent Act!

What is The Dent Act? Well it's a piece of legislation that is meant to "close the loophole that existed in the previous laws that hampered the city's ability to stamp out organized crime." The Mayor is also planning on following this up with another piece of legislation that would make the day Harvey Dent died into a holiday - Harvey Dent Day. Mayor Garcia offered the following in response to The Dent Act:

"Before the Dent Act, our city was so desperate that we place our trust behind a masked vigilante who ultimately murdered the man who was truly Gotham's shining hope."

When Commissioner Gordon stumbles upon a plot to destroy the city from within, Bruce Wayne gets back into action as the Batman. Waiting for him is the mysterious Selina Kyle and Bane, a lethal adversary on a crusade to tear apart Batman's legacy piece by piece.

Will Gotham ever be able to exist without The Batman? We find out when THE DARK KNIGHT RISES hits theaters everywhere on July 20th.


Extra Tidbit: Christopher Nolan is also producing the new Superman flick MAN OF STEEL along with the long-in-development JUSTICE LEAGUE movie.
