Batman Sues Batman!!

Albert Einstein had once said "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe." And somehow, the world comes out with ample examples proving him right!! I'm pretty sure you've figured out what this post is about: Batman has been sued. But what is funny is the fact that he has been sued for name-stealing...... now you wonder who names himself Batman. Well, its not a person, but a whole town named after the caped crusader in Good ol' Turkey!!

The mayor of Batman, Huseyin Kalkan, is suing Warner Bros. and The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan for using the Cape Crusader's name without the city's permission.

Kalkan claims to have evidence that will prove the city of Batman was founded much before the 1939 debut of DC Comic's superhero by the same name.

Why the city is complaining now about its name being used for masked justice may have something to do with The Dark Knight having grossed over $995 million worldwide so far. So even a small cut would be more than enough to fulfill the mayor's deepest desires!!

There is only one Batman in the world. American producers used the name of our city without informing us --Huseyin Kalkan
