Batman Vs. Batman
From an article at variety.com:
Batman has a new adversary: Batman.
The mayor of an oil-producing city in southeastern Turkey, which has the same name as the Caped Crusader, is suing helmer Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. for royalties from mega-grosser "The Dark Knight."
Huseyin Kalkan, the pro-Kurdish Democratic Society Party mayor of Batman, has accused "The Dark Knight" producers of using the city's name without permission.
"There is only one Batman in the world," Kalkan said.
"The American producers used the name of our city without informing us.
I notice on the page at Variety that Christian Bale may have had his own name at one time, but he is now identified simply as "The Dark Knight."
