Its has become apparent now that there are usually a few weeks of nothing and then all of a sudden lots of viral marketing for The Dark Knight appears everywhere. There has been updates to existing viral sites, new viral sites and a new edition of The Gotham Times. There is also more, which I will allow SuperHero Hype to tell you:
UPDATE #1: The official Gotham Times website has updated to this new issue of the newspaper. Also, IBelieveinHarveyDent.com has received an update.
UPDATE #2: Talked about in the newspaper’s new issue, MaidenAvenueReport.com is also online.
UPDATE #3: GothamCableNews.com, Dana Worthington.com, CitizensforBatman.org and SaintsWithunsChurch.org have launched as well.
UPDATE #4: Be sure to e-mail some of the above sites to see what kind of replies you get!
UPDATE #5: GVAFoundation.org has been updated with a message from Dana Worthington.
UPDATE #6: Joker’s back too! Fans are receiving this text message from firstname.lastname@example.org:
Hey clown! Long time, no crime spree! Well, put on your floppy shoes and answer this question: are you ready to get to work? (ReplyY/N)
If you reply Y, you’ll get back:
“Glad to see you’re still alive and kicking. I’ll be in touch before Poisson d’Avril.”
So, looks like we’ll hear from The Joker before April Fools’ Day (April 1).
UPDATE #7: GPDIAD.com has updated with officers of the month, while you can now call GothamCab.com at 1-877-530-2227 to hear a message about how they’ve shut down, something that was also mentioned in the new Gotham Times (the cabs were being used for mafia delivery jobs). As before, you can enter Breitup’s badge number (6773) when prompted at the end of the message for more.
