TDKR? Had so much potential.

I really wish Chris Nolan took a little more time to come up with a title. Something catchy, but now too much of a mouthful. The Dark Knight Rises? The writer/director of Inception came up with this?! I really hope Chris Nolan and the studio hears our pleas and re-titles the film to something bad ass and just as catchy like "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight".

mehhh

im soooo not sold by this title, if they were going in this direction it SHOULD have been The Dark Knight Returns.

Obviously I still have absolute faith with the film but it wouldve been nice to have a better title...

I'll admit when I first heard it I didn't like it, but now I just don't even really care about it.

Bland and uninspired! This seems like a cheap rip-off of TDK, that The Asylum or some such would make (I love the Asylum, fyi). For this title, it ends to be clear that an ending is happening.

It's not a bad title, it just feels more like Dark Knight 2 than part 3 of a trilogy. I mean, does the studio honestly think people won't know this is a sequel to the Dark Knight when they see the trailer if the words "the Dark Knight" aren't in the title?

Everyone complaining about this title would have been ecstatic if the title were "The Dark Knight Returns." One word, both verbs. Some people will never be happy. I'm looking forward to this.

Meh, a bit underwhelming.

I still think Begins should've been called 'BATMAN: Legend of the Dark Knight' and then 'BATMAN: The Dark Knight Returns' and finally 'BATMAN: Shadow of the Bat' or something like that.

Exactly. "Batman Begins" was original on it's own. "TDK" was different from "BB" and original. Why should this one be any different?

Its lame. Rises, returns, comes back, strike, 2, any of those are horrid. I would have liked something with Gotham involved with the title. Like, Gotham City, Knight of Gotham, Gotham Knight, Gothomomotherfu*ker

That's what I was thinking. "Rises" falls into the category of all those other cliche titles.

"Rises"

I just really don't understand why folks still feel it's necessary to spoon-feed the viewers by giving them a lame title so they won't question what the film is about. What's wrong with an original title?

What it comes down to is that Batman "rose" at the end of Begins. At this point he's not "rising" to anything.

I was certain they'd chose THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS as another nod to Batman lore. BEGINS always seemed odd, TDK was bold, but now we're back to odd with RISES.

Not very appealing if you ask me. The Dark Knight was such a concise and bold title, and then this one kind of just adds on and waters it down. Too similar to Batman Returns.

Eh

It's not terrible, just a little uninspired sounding because it simply tacks a verb onto the end of TDK. If this is indeed the final chapter and will have a more uplifting ending, I'd have rather seen something different but that also alludes to the fact that, by the end of this film, Batman will be back to full strength and fighting crime in Gotham for a long time..Something like "The Caped Crusader".

I don't think it is a bad title, i wish it was independent from the previous films, all the same. I'm glad as hell it is not 3D, and i think it is same to assume that when he says "high definition cameras", he doesn't mean HD digital, he means pure, sexual IMAX. HELL YES.

the interesting thing about the title, like it is mentioned in the article, is the The Dark Knight refered to Harvey Dent too. Add to that, Nolan said we'll be seeing familiar faces, and if the bad guy were to be Hugo

the interesting thing about the title, like it is mentioned in the article, is the The Dark Knight refered to Harvey Dent too. Add to that, Nolan said we'll be seeing familiar faces, and if the bad guy were to be Hugo Strange (Tom Hardy?), then we will definitely be seeing some more Arkham, which all leads to more two-face as well. Either way, if there is anything the previous Nolan Batman films have taught us, it is that the title of the movie makes sense at the very last frame. So The Dark Knight Rises is probably more indicative of where the characters are by the end of the film than at the beginning.

Hugo Strange is also the main villain in the new Arkham Asylam video game, which will come out around the time we start getting trailers for The Dark Knight Rises.

To me..

The Dark Knight Rises feels like an alternate title idea being held over from Batman Begins.

I'm just glad Hugo Strange is still being considered as the villain. He makes the most sense in the framework of Nolan's Universe.

I think just "Gotham" would suffice. But of course, we don't know the story so it probably will make more sense once we see the movie (the "rises" part, I mean).

I don't think it's a particularly bad title - and I know it has nothing to do with the quality of the actual film - I was just kind of hoping to get that same feeling I had when I found out Part 2 was called The Dark Knight. Something about it just seemed so cool and so perfect, like I was immediately excited because, by that title alone, I automatically just knew that they were bringing something really awesome to the mix.

It was nice having a break from Batman articles, looks like they're revving back up. I'll look forward to this movie in 12-18 months.

The title sucks. I was hoping for "Gotham City" or "The Battle for Gotham". I think those titles sound alot more appropriate for the final movie of this trilogy.

"The Battle for Gotham"? Understand that not all "trilogy's" end with a massive fight with gregorian chants. Unless you're into how the X-Men trilogy went out.

as i stated on the main article, it's no worse a title than "Batman Begins"

Plus, I could give shit what the title is. As long as the movie is tits, the title could be "Yippee, Mr. Batman Saves the City."
