The Dark Knight Breaks Box Office Records, DC Comics Fearful, Perplexed
These are the words heard emanating from the offices of New York-based DC Comics.
"The California boys (Warner Bros.) are gonna start wanting things again. They're (the suits) gonna want changes.
They're gonna want us to put Katie Holmes in the comics. We can't do that. We already gave Batman a girlfriend, a black one."
"Warner Bros. is already sneaking around the office. They keep touching my stuff, holding up my action figures, asking "Who is this?"
"It's Superman, noob."
"Man, it's coming. This guy over here, he keeps asking us what happened to that "Jack Black Green Lantern vehicle."
"Geez, man, it's coming."
When reached for comment, Warner Bros. issued this brief statement:
"We at Warner Bros. couldn't be happier with the performance of The Dark Knight. It did Iron Man-type numbers."
