WAIT WAS THAT A FLYING BATMOBILE?!?!?! I quite honestly have no clue what this particular Batman is going to be about! I’m not an authority on Batman, but from the characters chosen it feels kind of garbled. Anne Hathaway as Catwoman should be interesting, from what the trailer shows us she’s a lot saner than Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman was, but more vengeful almost, which makes her just as scary. Which is worse, a slightly insane Catwoman or vengeful and sane Catwoman?
I don’t know who Bane is, what I know about him was gained from the George Clooney Batman & Robin. This Bane looks less ridiculous, downright Hannibal Lecter in appearance and definitely more brains than the previous Bane. I’m unsure who Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s John Blake is supposed to be. The character Miranda Tate does ring a bell, but I can’t say who she is. I’m not about to go and look up their comic book counterparts because I’ll most probably read something that could spoil the movie.
This is the official synopsis for the Dark Knight Rises:
Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to their limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after having taken the fall for Harvey Dent’s crimes.
If they are trying to imitate the chaos and insanity of the Dark Knight I don’t think they’ll succeed. The Joker, was just absolute chaos, this film looks more like war than chaos. Not that I’m complaining. The Dark Knight Rises looks cool. Can’t wait to see how this goes.
