A media release for The Dark Knight Rises may have a spoiler regarding another villainous cameo

06.29.2012

With just about a month to go until THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, the news is ramping up. This will be the third story on the final chapter of the Batman trilogy today alone. But, when you make movies as good as Christopher Nolan does, you can expect there to be lots of chatter.

With that being said, I do not want to take away the excitement and surprises that THE DARK KNIGHT RISES may have awaiting audiences. So, consider this a spoiler warning. If you do not want anything ruined for you, stop reading now. For the rest of you, scroll past Batman looking all badass below.

Still there? Okay, here you go.

In a recent media release for the upcoming London premiere of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, a listing of cast members who would be attending the premiere included Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. No surprises there, but also listed are Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy.

The Liam Neeson rumor has been known for some time, leading to rampant speculation that Marion Cotillard would be playing Talia Al Ghul. But, this is the first mention I have seen of Cillian Murphy being involved with the final film in anything more than a rumor capacity. Murphy played Dr. Jonathan Crane in both BATMAN BEGINS and briefly in THE DARK KNIGHT. Having him return for the last installment would be pretty cool, even if it was only for a cameo.

While this media alert could just be listing any and all cast involved with the three Nolan Batman films, Murphy was also recently asked in an interview if he would be in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. His response was, "It's coming out in July isn't it? That's not long to wait. All these questions!"

We will all find out just how many villains appear in the conclusion to the best superhero trilogy of all time when THE DARK KNIGHT RISES open on July 20th.

This is great....but...

This is also on IMDB so it's not really a spoiler. The only thing that breaks my Batman heart is that Heath won't be able to be back as the Joker. If Heath was still alive I bet everything he would either be the main villain again or just team up with the other villains against Batman. It would have also been cool to see Bain release the Joker from Arkham. I want my Joker.

Not realy that newsworthy

Cillian Murphy has been listed as one of the only members of the cast to appear in all three films since they started production on this. Awesome tidbit, but I wouldn't consider it spoilerish since it has been out in the internets for a while now.

What? I've known about this for like 6 months. Wasn't there even pictures of them both on set posted on this site? PLEASE bring back the old style site!

So when is it revealed that it was really The Sandman who killed Bruce's parents?

Yeah, they're not jamming too much in to this one.

Look at the other two movies again before saying they have too much stuff going on. Begins had Ra's, Scarecrow and Falcone. TDK had Two Face, Joker, the entire mob and a Scarecrow cameo. TDKR has Catwoman, Bane, possibly Talia and a Scarecrow cameo.

The Spider-Man 3 comparisons should stop, the other movies haven't been light on villains either, they've just handled them well. At the end of the day that's what matters. Not how many villains are in the film but how well each of them is

JOBLO, PLEASE BRING BACK THE SIDEBAR

I love this site and have frequented it for years. I love the new changes in aesthetic but getting rid of the sidebar was such a mistake. It takes too long to find news and what I always liked most about joblo (compared to the many other competing movie news sites) was the easy accessibility of information and convenience in design. That is gone now, and judge me as you will, I have been visiting the site less because of the new changes. Maybe I am lazy or impatient in getting used to the

Maybe I am lazy or impatient in getting used to the new system but I honestly feel that Joblo got rid of something that made me choose them every time: being able to cut through the bullshit and see movie news.

I hear what you're saying, but we had that same look/navigation for about 5-6 years and times have changes since and we need to move forward with those times. That said, we truly believe these changes have made the site stronger but also understand that some of you were "used to" the old ways, etc... To that end, here's a small FAQ on the _8 different ways_ that you can now access our news headlines in the "new look", many of which were not available to you before. Please take a little time to

@Joblo - We understand the "Changing with the times" thing. That's not the issue, (Not mine at least), but how hard is it to put a side bar with headlines on the side in addition to the redesign?
I personally don't mind the rest of the changes. I like it. But, having that sidebar is so easy and accessible.
You guys do a great job and I will continue to visit your site, but please bring the sidebar back. It's so convenient.

Ok so let me get this straight, you are surprised Scarecrow shows up again in TDKR, its probably just as brief as it was in TDK.

Cool!

I love the character. I hope be pops up briefly like in TDK. He'll kinda be like the Boba Fett of Nolan's "Bat" trilogy. And it would make sense if Bane releases all of Gotham's prisoners (and also Scarecrow was working with the League of Shadows in the first movie.)

Don't jump the gun on this before seeing the movie. I am a bit worried if this movie is going the Spiderman 3 route. Too many villains. Too many plot elements.

This isn't much news if you've been keeping up with reports for this thing. Neeson was said to have shot a short scene--most likely a flashback sequence with Marion--and Murphy is acting as a judge in Bane's kangaroo court.

You say that this is the best superhero trilogy of all time and challenge us to name one better? Well I can't even think of another superhero trilogy, let alone a better one. The term "trilogy" is one of the most misapplied words in Hollywood. Two sequels do not make a movie a trilogy. The Iron Man movies all feature Iron Man, but they are not a trilogy.

A trilogy is one self-contained story. Spin-offs don't count. Wolverine and First Class are spin-offs and don't count towards the main X-Men trilogy. Reboots are separate trilogies. We have Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy and now with the reboot it'll probably become a Andrew Garfield trilogy. I don't call Avengers an Iron Man movie. It's an Avengers movie, it just has Iron Man in it. Iron Man 3 will make the Iron Man series a trilogy. Now if they make Iron Man 4 with the same cast and story then it

Now if they make Iron Man 4 with the same cast and story then it wouldn't be a trilogy anymore, it'll be a series. Die Hard isn't a trilogy anymore, Indiana Jones isn't a trilogy anymore, Alien is a trilogy anymore, as the 4th ones of them count as the continuing stories. Nolan's Batman trilogy is a trilogy because it's the end of his story. Is there going to be more Batman movies? Yeah obviously. But it won't follow the same story as Nolan's so Nolan's trilogy will be contained as 3 movies.

There have been rumors of Scarecrow making a brief appearance for many months now. Supposedly he acts as the judge when Bane puts Gotham's elite on trial.

With this, I am fairly convinced that the League of Shadows will be apart of the film. It's possible that Scarecrow will have just a cameo, like Dark Knight (maybe it's an inside thing for Nolan, like how Sandler likes to have Rob Schnieder in all his films), but I also wouldn't be surprised to see him as part of the League of Shadows.

Unless he was brought in by Liam Neeson's Al Ghul as a member of the League of Shadows, which has been speculated to be apart of this final film. Wouldn't be surprised.

Why wouldn't it make any sense? We already know from the TV ads that Bane releases all of Gotham's prisoners.
