Oops! Did one of the stars of The Dark Knight spill something he shouldn't have? Anyway, it's out:

A sequel to the megahit batflick will start shooting in 2010, according to Gary Oldman, aka Commissioner Gordon. He let word slip to fans today at San Diego Comic-Con, on the panel promoting The Book of Eli, which totally isn't about Batman.

"We start shooting next year," Oldman 'fessed. "Which means the movie won't come out for another two years. But you didn't hear it from me!"

Oh, but we totally just did!

He offered no other details, but confirms that, after making Inception, director Christopher Nolan will team up for a third romp with Batguy Christian Bale. And if your last flick was the second-highest grossing movie ever, you would too, right?
