Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christain Bale and now… Harvey Fierstein. It was announced today the gravely voiced actor would don cape and cowl in “Batman 7: The Dark Knight Comes Out of the Closet.”

Fierstein will also write the script based on his original idea. When asked how he came up with the idea, Fierstein related, “this relative said ‘if being gay is so cool, why isn’t there a gay super hero?’ And I’m like ‘what do you call Batman?’ A guy in his late thirties, not married, wears spandex to work… has an older man who takes care of him… won’t be seen without his special belt. It’s obvious!”

A spokesman reported that billboards will go up soon announcing, “Batman, Coming Out This Summer!”
