Dark Knight Rises synopsis revealed
Don't panic! There are no spoilers here. It's just an outline, as seen on the latest Warner Bros press release.
"Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane."
This ties together a lot of the snippets we've been seeing in the various trailers. "Cunning Cat Burglar," refers to Selena Kyle but there's no inference that she'll turn for the good here.
Batman is still in seclusion and his return is prompted by Bane. Will his 'seclusion' involve the return of Ra's Al Goul (Laim Neeson)? Seems likely. Remember, Neeson's coming to the premiere on the 18th.
All will be revealed when The Dark Knight Rises reaches us on 20 July.
