A sequel to "The Dark Knight" will swoop into theaters in 2012.

Warner Bros. scheduled July 20, 2012, as the release date for the next installment of the Batman film franchise.

Director Christopher Nolan brought the Caped Crusader back to the big screen in 2005's "Batman Begins" and 2008's "The Dark Knight," which earned over $1 billion worldwide and garnered Heath Ledger a posthumous Oscar for his role as The Joker.

No other details about the film were announced Friday.
