The mayor of the city Batman in Turkey is suing Warner Bros and Director Chistopher Nolan for royalties from "The Dark Knight"
"The mayor is prepping a series of charges against Nolan and Warner Bros., which owns the right to the Batman character, including placing the blame for a number of unsolved murders and a high female suicide rate on the psychological impact that the film's success has had on the city's inhabitants"
This unprecedented lawsuit could set off a chain of similar litigations
For instance, what would keep the king of Nepal from going after 70's rock icon Bob Seger for royalties associated with the hit Katmandu
If successful, Turkey could effectively put a stand still on this years Thanksgiving Day celebrations, demanding a cut of the profits from every Butterball sold...
When reached for comment one Turkish ambassador had this to say:
"My barbor didn't know when quit...do you?"
Cryptic at best...
Though, not all cities on the world stage are behaving in such a way.
Citizens in one Japanese town are happy to share a name with another dark knight...
Of course its all just a way for this glassy eyed turk to drum up some publicity for his town that's know for little more than a high suicide rate for female outcasts. He actually has no case being that the town was named in the 50s. Long after Batman (the character) was introduced in the 30s.
If you wanna go after someone go after Danzig...You hear me Germany? Sue the leather pants off of him...and the fish net sweater...and those shitty tatoos...Man, i hate you Glen Danzig
