MOVIES + Batman Begins…again! The second installment of director Christopher Nolan‘s reinvented Dark Knight series will be called, um, The Dark Knight. Written by Nolan’s brother, Jonathan, it will once again star Christian Bale, with Heath Ledger as the Joker. Send your best Brokeback-Batman mash-ups to totallylame andobvious@ew.com.

+ Speaking of superheroes, Joss Whedon is hard at work on that Wonder Woman script, so producer Joel Silver can start thinking about casting. ”It could be someone you’ve never heard of,” he says. (Actors, start your agents!) ”I think if you make the character strong and aggressive, really make it kind of a muscular-chick film, people will respond to it.” And Mr. Silver knows from muscular chicks: He’s also producing The Brave One — shooting right now in NYC — starring Jodie Foster as a victim of urban violence. Thank God she’s already got that panic room.
