The plot for The Dark Knight Rises could be...

Mar. 2, 2011by: Niki Stephens

Badass Digest had some words with a good source near the Batcamp about THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Devin at Badass Digest feels pretty confident that the info is solid, but with all Bats related rumors you never know. Nolan and his people like to throw everyone off course, keeping the goods all to themselves.

Here comes the possible plot. Devin states that it could technically be a MAJOR SPOILER if it turns out to be true. So if you want to be left in the dark don't read the red text:

"As she herself confirmed, Anne Hathaway will be Catwoman in the movie. I cant tell you what role she has in the beginning, but by the end of the story Catwoman isnt a villain but rather an ally of Batman. And who are they teaming up to take out?"

"The League of Shadows."

"Headed by Talia AlGhul. With Bane, who is her muscle/possible love interest. And with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in tow. Is he playing Black Mask? My source didnt know, but did know that Levitt is certainly an antagonist and involved with the League of Shadows."

When it comes to Talia and Bane, as far as I know that was a love connection that was set up by Daddy al Ghul. He thought Bane could lead the League of Shadows, but she wasn't into him so Ra's gave that idea up. I know for a fact that Black Mask and Catwoman have crossed paths. However, I don't remember if Batman interfered or not. Still, Catwoman does go after Black Mask and Nolan could have Batman help her out.

Thoughts on this possible plot?

Marion Cotillard as Talia? Perfect.

Extra Tidbit: I'm still sort of partial to the Knightfall storyline. Can we use the t-rex?

I like the plot and think this would be a great way to end the trilogy.

I like the idea of Batman and Catwoman becoming allies at the end to take down Talia and Bane.

Makes the trilogy come full circle and I couldn't be any happier if this was indeed the plot.

Skeptical

TDKR is easily my most anticipated film so far, and I really want to like it. However, the beauty of TDK was it's simplicity. The Joker was the main villain, and Dent and Maroni added some welcome density to the material. Whereas here I'm getting a bad feeling of "Green Goblin Jr. helps out against Venom and Sandman". Granted it's Nolan so I trust him big time but I'd feel more comfortable if there were less villains. Anywho, I guess we'll all be wowed in the end. I was skeptical when I heard

I was skeptical when I heard the sentence "a heist film set within the architecture of the mind" too so... what do I know ?

I really don't get why people would want less villains in this film--especially as Nolan has shown he can juggle multiple subplots and characters.

I also just highly doubt that Nolan will follow Raimi's Spidey 3 folly--esp. when Nolan has Spidey 3 and X3 as guideposts of what NOT to do in a third comic movie. Time will tell, but I think TDKR will be rocking..

Spiderman 3?

So the hero teams up with a character who was a villian earlier in the film (spiderman & new goblin) to fight 2 new villians who have teamed up against the hero (sandman and venom). I know I'm over-simplifying and Nolan will most likely make it work. But 4 possible villians? Unless JGL just gets an extended cameo like Wantenabe in Begins or Fichner in Dark Knight, this has me slightly worried. If it's even true.

So Talia is the domme in charge and Bane is her muscle/love interest/gimp/pet? I don't like the way it sounds. I thought Bane would be the main villain. I actually expected him to be introduced as a new criminal mastermind taking over Gotham underground left in ruin after the Joker's chaos run. Would make much more sense to me. As for Catwoman being an ally, I can believe that. But Bane wasted like this? No way.

Following on from this Batman-On-Film.com posted on their Facebook page that this plot summary is indeed true:
FYI: Some TDKR details have leaked. I know that they are true because Ive known about it for a few weeks now.

one thing i hate about current superhero movies is every villain is connected directly to the hero or the hero's girl.. who ends up at the final battle. I think they could've left Talia out of this run and had Bane simply set on taking down batman for unrelated reasons like self justification.

This few sentences can't show how a 2+hours movie will turn out.
If it wouldn't be Nolan I would say "lame" because of the League of Shadow again and Talia...But Nolan is behind this so I think he will make something great and interesting out of it!

this really isnt a spolier or a surprise as Batman's & Catwoman's romantic relationship has always been one of the most intriging aspects of the Batman universe.

Also with the League of Shadows returning, it brings everything full circle, thus completing a trilogy.

Bane has been courted to be Talia's husband before in the comics, but when Batman kicked his lily ass they tossed Bane aside.

Feels anticlimatic, I don't want full circle I want a unexpected ending. We didn't know if the joker was going to live or die in the last one. Now I feel like it won't even be talked about. You have to up it a notch over the joker or bring us something different and ezciting. I hope we see bane, black mask, catwoman, and either harley quinn or two face. Bane has to break batmans back and catwoman takeover ala azreal

This is the real thing....

So Batman on Film.com, which is the most credible Batman-movie site out there, and has been for over ten years, has confirmed this. No ifs and or buts, this is it! Don't know about you but I'm very excited :D

No hate here...

I shall pass no judgment until I see the final product. Not too long ago I was not happy with the casting of Heath Ledger as the joker. I bitched and moaned, and I was proven quite wrong by the final product. All that trolling only ended making me look like a giant ass. (Plus, Nolan has not disappointed me thus far so I have no reason to go around bitching about him)

I'd say 99% of comic based movies share the same thematic elements...Nolan hasn't failed yet...I say let the guy do what he does best...direct never fail movies...name a poorly made Nolan movie?

That's all great, but...

I have still got a crazy feeling that - despite everything Nolan has ever said to the contrary - Gordon-Levitt will be playing the Joker.

Also, Hines Ward is going to win the next season of Dancing With the Stars, Charlie Sheen will complete a hostile takeover of CBS studios within the next year and the Cubs will never ever again win the World Series before our sun goes supernova in the year 2237.

I'm loving this!

I hope this is indeed the plot. I've always seen Catwoman as an vigilante like Batman, but does break the rules. But what's got me really excited is Talia and Bane being together. I've always liked this idea and with the possibility that Bane being a former member of the League, I think this would indeed bring things full circle.

I like the idea, it's probably not 100%. But I assume the part about Catwoman and Batman being allies will be what we get. The rumors of Catwoman acting alone in Gotham which brings Batman back sound like a good starting point. Catwoman not caring if criminals are killed rather then put in Arkham/jail seems like a possible conflict.

Let's remember a rumor is a rumor because it isn't true.

And in order to truly figure out the finale, you'd have to find the moral basis for all these events. Nolan is good, and so are his stories. Good stories have a lesson or general theme.

NO!

I will be so disappointed if this is the actual plot. Bane needs to be the Bane from the comics, and not someone's lackey. That is that.

I don't read comics, so I've never heard of the black mask. I would kinda like to see the penguin come back. Maybe only danny devito could do him justice though. It is nice to see a character added that we haven't seen before.

There's no way that's the plot! Nolan likes to keep things close to his chest and also he wouldn't waste Tom Hardy's Bane as a sidekick in this way. Bane will be a major protagonist, mark my words...

wait so the villains are gonna be Cotillard, Hardy, and Gordon-Levitt (not to mention Cillian Murphy and Ken Watanabe were previous batman villains).... see the trend?

this movie will end with Christian Bale waking up to realize that all the Batman stuff was a dream. he's still in the prison from the Prestige and Hugh Jackman has donned the mask of Wolverine. now Christian Bale must escape the prison and send Kyle Reese back to the past to save the future. Leonardo DiCaprio is in there

I like this plot as it manages to use everyone and put them in a coherent storyline. However, Christopher Nolan usually uses disinformation (I can't be the only one who remembers the Anthony Michael Hall as the Riddler in The Dark Knight rumor) so either this is completly bogus or only parts of this are true. Regardless, I know being snubbed for the Best Director nomination and losing Original Screenplay to King's Speech probably inspired Nolan to make TDKR even better than he had thought or we

I know in the comics, Catwoman killed Black Mask, but as for this movie, I'm kind of cold to the idea of Bane being a side kick. He needs to be a major player. I'm hoping Black Mask isn't in this movie because he is too good a character to waste as a third villain.

I don't like the fact that so many people are getting dragged into this. I do like that Catwoman is in the film. hopefully that adds a new dimension to the film by making it very personal for Bruce Wayne/Batman (as they really should play their attraction for each other up). I'm still a little puzzled as to how they will handle Bane, and now this whole league of shadows thing is going to make things more complicated. I trust Nolan 100%, but I don't want to see this be the film turns into the

An Additional Side Plot

I think what would be a good side plot, would to have Robin become an actual foe of Batman. Dick Greyson (Robin) is actually one of the members of The League of Shadows. He joins, or was recruited, inorder to get training so he could get revenge with Batman for killing his Uncle, Det. Michael Wuertz (who was actually shot by Harvey Dent / Two Face). Young Robin is The League's "star student" and stands toe to toe with Batman for the most part. As the rest of the plot goes, Robin finally finds
