There's not a whole lot to see, but Warner Bros. has thrown up a teaser page for next summer's The Dark Knight; a sequel to Christopher Nolan's very awesome Batman Begins. So far, all we're getting is what looks to be the Batman symbol going through warp speed; it's a cool image -- one that's definitely a tease -- and you can't help but wish they gave us a little bit more. A release date, perhaps? Or how about a nifty tagline that went something like, "Bats eat spiders for breakfast?"

Thankfully, it appears all that commotion surrounding The Dark Knight's Chicago production has calmed down; there was a time not long ago when every day brought new spy photos from the set -- some of which (like those pics of Heath Ledger as Joker) were fake. Since then, however, things have remained fairly quiet. A little too quiet if you know what I mean. Some reports claim Warner Bros. will release their own photo of Ledger as Joker at some point this summer in order to beat out the eventual set leaks. Since The Dark Knight is set to be released on July 18, 2008, maybe they'll give us something on July 18th of this year? Who knows. But anyway, this time around Batman (Christian Bale) helps LT. Gordon (Gary Oldman) and newly appointed DA Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) track down a crazed killer who goes by the name of Joker (Ledger). Meanwhile, the very cute Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is lingering around, while Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) returns to help Bruce Wayne collect cool gadgets and, of course, Alfred (Michael Caine) will be there to put him to bed each night.
