The agreement licenses Microgaming to develop online slots based on 2 DC Entertainment movies. These are The Dark Night Rises and The Dark Night. Video slots will be developed by Microgaming with characters, themes and animation material from the movies. The Dark Night will be released by the software provider this summer, around the same time when The Dark Night Rises will hit the big screens. The film has been scheduled to release on July 30th. The Dark Night was released in 2008.
The Batman character was introduced by DC Comics in 1939. Since that time, the character has become extremely popular. It features in about 15 DC Comic books every month. The books are distributed in close to 60 countries in 30 languages.
