A few days ago we reported that Warner Brothers and IMAX had signed a whopping 20-picture deal for several future films, one of which being Batman 3. Now Box Office Mojo is reporting that Warner Brothers has set a July 20, 2012 release date for Batman 3.

The release date mirrors the release of the studio's incredibly successful sequel The Dark Knight, which opened on July 18, 2008 and took in a whopping $533.1 million at the domestic box office and more than $1 billion worldwide.

No further information was given, but it's worth noting that the release date comes just a few weeks after Sony's Untitled Spider-Man Reboot, which is set for release on July 3, 2012. As of now, they are the only two films slated for a July 2012 release.
