What the hell is going on at the Dark Knight Rises web site?

05.20.2011

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?...

Go watch the Halle Berry Catwoman movie. Hopefully Nolan has more respect for the character and she will be wearing something better. Then again I guess he doesn't have much respect for the character has he's cast Hathaway to play the part...

i see it as...

The Fire Rises, refers to a scene in which Bane is on fire as a child and Raz Al Ghul finds him and notices that he has no reaction to being on Fire thus Bane can't feel pain. Raz sees this and knows its advantage and thus takes him in and trains him. He uses the Laz Pit to heal him as a child and thus a Father, Son relationship is born. So when Raz is killed in Batman Begins, Bane finds out and thus is out to kill the Batman. How does that sound?

I am as excited about this flick as the next guy. But am I the only one who doesnt really want to see anything from the film before it actually comes out ?

I might be old fashioned, or simply too old, but I've never gotten the excitement about those one-year long marketing campaign, where only bits at a time are revealed throughout the year.

You would probably do best to avoid movie-news sites, if you are spoiler averse. That's like going to a movie theater and complaining about being cooped up in the dark for 2 hours.

Actually, I like getting my movie news. Knowing what project is up next and knowing who is involved. I take a quick look when its about marketing. And Im not complaining that some people enjoy the viral stuff. Its just not for me.

Sit back and relax

So why is it that people think they know how good or bad a movie is going to be just because a picture is released online? It seems that now a days everyone thinks they are super movie buffs who know everything there is to know about something before its even out and already know if it is going to suck or be good. just shut up and watch the movie and complain after.

My biggest question is...is Bane going to just be a villain, or is Nolan really going for a Knightfall-inspired tale? Because if so...holy shit. Thats a path that no superhero movie to date has taken.

People forget so easily how much they hated Heath Ledger's Joker before the film came out.

I don't think I heard anything positive about him until rumors about his performance on-set started leaking. And even then lots of people were skeptical (remember the whole "oh no he's on a skate board" thing? Yeesh)

I remember being underwhelmed by Heath Ledger's first Joker picture during the similar campaign for TDK.

But this... well this gets me properly whelmed.

Nolan has yet to make a bad movie, he won't start now.

I'm liking this new style of Bane. Does anyone else notice the round circle at the back of Bane's mask? I do hope Nolan does keep in Bane's venom and doesnt try to take it out of the film to make it more realistic.

Damn, Hardy looks FN' jacked.

As for the mask though we have no context for it, so it might just be something he wears in one scene like an origin sequence, or something they put on him in prison to keep him from biting people like Hannibal Lecter, or maybe he doesn't even wear a mask most of the time for all we know and its just some kind of a breather mask he wears for his venom doses, so its to early to judge, esspecially since were not seeing it from the front either. This is most likely just an early costume test, but

Bane or boon

Bane's new look is exactly what I was hoping for! It's very similar to the Joker's makeover for TDK, in that it's something realistic but with a hint of the fantastical...or crazy.

is what his eyes say to me. The mask looks like something Scorpion or Smoke would wear from MK, in a good way. Totally digging this though. It may not even be his final or complete costume. Could just be a test pic, similar to the make-up test pic that showed us Ledger as Mr. J. Can't wait to see more!!

Reminds me of viral stuffs from The Dark Knight. As for the website, it sounds like a chant - a ritual of some sort. At almost the end of the clip, it sounds like "Pick your butter" (?). Of course, anybody with advance sound program might be able to decipher what the clip is all about. My guess: sounds from The Lazarus Pit ritual. Groovy.

This pretty much confirms that either Talia or her father will have some involvement. I know someone was cast as a young Ra's, maybe its not a flashback, maybe he comes back younger?

The realism was refreshing in Begins, but with the speech at the end referring to "escalation", I figured that Nolan would start to move into the more unrealistic (and frankly, he could have done it justice considering no one really has in a live action forum) aspects of the character? I mean, TDK was still loyal to the characters (aside from Joker making two face as opposed to Maroni/Dent's self destructing obsession, although the prophetic dirty cops was a nice touch), but this just isn't Bane. I'm a Batman fanboy and I have loved Nolan's movies so far (and I'm hoping I'm just as wrong now as I was when I HEARD who was playing the joker), but unlike when I saw the first pic of the joker, I'm unimpressed and fearful of how this will turn out.

Yay for looking nothing like Bane???

I'm looking forward to this movie, but if any other director was behind this version of Bane no one here would like it.

even though i enjoy nolan's work with bruce wayne, i can't wait until this trilogy is done so we can finally get a batman movie rather than smallville, and thats not a dig at smallville, nolan or batman. i love all the work done on all three movies, my only real problem is i want to actually watch a batman movie, not him becoming the dark knight, because to me they still aren't there, it feels like brice is still struggling to deal with his duel life. i want a batman who is already good to go

also while i'm still trying to accept hardy as bane, i'm just having the toughest time given javier Bardem was the much better choice on all fronts but alas i'm not directing oh well.
But let me be clear so i'm not flamed wrongly, i'm not against this film i'm just not anticipating it. and before you ask then why read the article, i read all the joblo.com articles and only post on the ones i want.
so thank you nolan but move on, and lets have someone else at bat.

Does he get slapped with a glove a lot in his "duel life"? Or is it mostly sword fighting?
I also disagree with you on this whole topic.

fair enough people are allowed to disagree may i inquire as to why? and yes i did misspell duel, way to go you nit picked yourself a winner. but truthfully what about my points did you disagree was it my point about my enjoyment of nolans work with the trilogy, the fact its bruce becoming batman, bane miscast or what feel free to disagree, i just want to know why

I SUPER agree with you man! You are on point – you wont be getting many positives. People didn’t actually read your comment – I too like the Nolan Batman’s but they are not really what Batman should be – and they aren’t terribly exciting. I just sit and watch them and say “that was a good movie” but I don’t get excited the way I would with the Chris Reeve Superman, or the first 2 Batmans by Timmy. Nolan’s batman is good – so I don’t complain, but again, its not really

I guess I'm happy for the Nolan cultists.
But I really don't care for this movie. The 2nd was good enough but the first one was horrible.
Maybe if someone else than Bale was playing Batman I would care more.

Are you fucking shitting me? Begins is arguably better than TDK which is far more than just "good enough."

You bemoan people for being harsh on negative opinions in another post - but you start this one by belittling people who like Nolan movies.


It seems naive on your part to whine about getting respect for your minority opinion, when you can't extend that same respect to everybody else.


Most of your post is a valid opinion about Nolan's Batman movies. But if you don't recognize how your opening shot: "I guess I'm happy for the Nolan cultists" is the work of a passive-aggressive

But if you don't recognize how your opening shot: "I guess I'm happy for the Nolan cultists" is the work of a passive-aggressive patronizing troll taking aim at site members with whom you disagree - then you're going to spend a lot of time wondering where all the hate is always coming from.

Cultists is pretty much the only word for it. It's a strange phenomenon, I can't think of any other film maker who's work gets defended with such a religious fervour.

Anyway, have to disagree. Batman Begins, once you get past the ninja shit in the snow, is a vastly superior film to TDK, the latter being a convoluted, over-written mess. Although I think time will be equally unkind to both. And yes, Bale is as bland as bland gets.

who would you rather have than bale? And who is one of your favorite directors that you like to defend as a good director so people can tell you to get off his nuts.

Again with the "trolls"...you people are retarded, give it a rest.
Aren't we not allowed to NOT CARE about this movie or the picture of Bane?
Aren't places like these meant for people to post what they think? Because if not then I guess Joblo could just take away the "this is a bad idea" or the "neutral" one options.
So, you: mrwhitefolk and smooveluv and Jeff527 are the real trolls.

Sincerely,
The Angry Nerd.

John Matrix: if you don't know the difference between a dissenting opinion and deliberate trolling comment, I'm not the one who is retarded. Even fat-womanizer knows he's trolling; he does it all the time - that's his schtick.

"Aren't places like these meant for people to post what they think?" That's what we're doing. Why not take away the "Post Reply" button - if disagreeing with dissenting opinions should be done away with.

@smoovelove
I am NOT a Troll. I only dislike the Nolan Batman Franchise and more than that the radical Nolan fans who don't allow freedom of speach. So please go jerk off to TDK and don't talk as if you knew me. And FYI: I like the Burton Batman.

Oops - My bad!!

Actually you are a troll - just one who isn't aware of what he's doing. Totally my bad for giving you too much credit. I don't know you - I just know your body of posts - most of which seemed tailor made to offend people in their bone-headed one-sidedness. The fact that your offensiveness isn't intentional - kinda depresses me. It was way cuter when you were a gimmick poster.

I don't jerk off to TDK. It's a pretty good movie, but I don't die over it. So don't talk

I'm so glad I know one of your movie pics! I can sleep better at night knowing that some guy on the internet likes his Batman with more whimsy and less hair up top.

Bane is a lame villain

Why not make a Batman film with Scarecrow as the main villain? Begins made it seem as if they would go in that direction, then they completely wasted him. All kinds of hallucination induced scenes would make for a great movie.

Did you like sleep through 75% of Begins?? It was all Scarecrow and hallucinations.
