What the hell is going on at the Dark Knight Rises web site?
To coincide with the DARK KNIGHT RISES Start of Production announcement yesterday (even though filming technically began about a week ago), Warner Bros. quietly launched the TDKR official website this morning. And? Your guess is as good as mine!
The page is completely black with absolutely no imagery. All there is at this point is a sound file (titled "rises") that plays automatically when the page is loaded. It's some kind of chanting like TEMPLE OF DOOM style. Or perhaps more correctly, Lazarus Pit style.
Of course this is all speculation at this point and no one really knows what this is just yet. Maybe someone will recognize the language and be able to decipher exactly what is going on here.
Head over to the site yourself and see if you can figure out exactly what's going on (or find something hidden that no one else has seen yet...).
UPDATE 3 - It's the first photo of Tom Hardy as Bane! The hashtags are still filling in but this is what you'll see when the mosaic is complete. Click to see in hi-res!
UPDATE 2 - Tweeting that hashtag apparently fills in an image hidden on the official site. See image below:
UPDATE - A poster on the Superhero Hype message boards was able to decipher the sound spectrum of the audio message and found something interesting hidden inside. A Twitter hashtag?...
