One of the most anticipated movies of the year is “The Dark Knight Rises,” and even though it’s being released in a few short months, not much in terms of plot details have emerged from Christopher Nolan’s camp. So when FilmCells Ltd., a company that makes products and merchandise for Warner Bros., accidentally put information for an upcoming product online, Batman fans on the net ate up the plot description attached to the product.
When Commissioner Gordon stumbles upon a plot to destroy the city from within, Bruce Wayne gets back into action as the Batman. Waiting for him is the mysterious Selina Kyle and Bane, a lethal adversary on a crusade to tear apart Batman’s legacy piece by piece.
This is interesting because it reveals a couple of things:
- All of the rumors about a doomsday-type device Bane (Tom Hardy) plans to use on Gotham might be true.
- Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) sounds like she’s going to be a traditional villain, rather than an antihero. This really does remain to be seen, though, but it’s something I’d like to see in the movie.
In a related note, ComicBookMovie has a great speculation piece about Bane’s doomsday device. They surmise it might be something that creates earthquakes across Gotham. Check it out.
