Movies on Summer 2012 Season

According to the Mayan calendar -- or, more accurate, what ridiculous disaster movies have said about the Mayan calendar -- the world will end in December of 2012. And if that's the case, well, at least we'll get to see some awesome movies first.

It was announced last week that Warner Bros. Pictures had signed a new deal with IMAX to release 20 upcoming films over the next three years in the giant-sized format. That's big news on its own, but that wasn't the real bombshell: included on the lists of titles was "Batman 3," with a release date set for July 20, 2012.

Christopher Nolan, director of "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight," stated this past March that he was planning to finish his Bat-trilogy with a final movie. But this is the first time a release date has been established. After the last movie brought in just over $1 billion worldwide, anticipation for another movie has been sky high. Still, there are some other giant movies coming in the summer of 2012 to be plenty excited about as well.

More Comic Book Action
The summer '12 movie season will kick off with "The Avengers," the movie that will bring together Marvel Comics' biggest heroes. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Hulk will team up in a massive movie opening the first weekend of May. Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson are definitely on board for the flick, which will reportedly be directed by "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator Joss Whedon. Read more here.

There are a lot of kick ass movies next year! Can't wait.
