Maybe he is the creator of Bane's mysterious device?
BabyGroot - 12/7/2011, 2:09 PM
Probably negotiations, setting up the plan for Bane's arrival to Gotham. If not then probably an old record hinting on Bane's untold origin. :P

@mctrinket, yeah that was also another assumption i had in mind.
goatmilk - 12/7/2011, 2:11 PM
bummed he's not Hugo Strange. Don't know what this means though. Probably bane related. Isn't Modine's character supposed to be CIA? Maybe he's following this guy and that's how he comes to Gotham.
RorMachine - 12/7/2011, 2:11 PM
Well I deciphered it and it says that Pavel is actually The Mad Hatter!
rsahadi - 12/7/2011, 2:12 PM
Maybe he designed the spherical weapon/bomb that is shown with Bane.
Wildaniel - 12/7/2011, 2:12 PM
He made that big ball thing, lol.

superotherside - 12/7/2011, 2:14 PM
Yeah, probably the guy that made ^^^

Interesting... I wonder if they'll reveal more stuff this way...
SUPERSP00NS - 12/7/2011, 2:19 PM
Nothing will trump the genius of the viral campaign for TDK... however i'm happy to say, let the madness begin again! ;)
NerdyGeek - 12/7/2011, 2:20 PM
Well, now we know one character that will be in the prologue ...
Steping - 12/7/2011, 2:20 PM

jf11mm - 12/7/2011, 2:22 PM

I think the big cultural event is the prologue release. Isn't there an invite only event happening tomorrow night?
Gyasiman - 12/7/2011, 2:29 PM
WHOA if you take all the numbers in this and put them with there corresponding letter then reverse it it spells Jean Paul Valley!!!!
NerdyGeek - 12/7/2011, 2:31 PM
@Steping: Yes! Here is the invitation people got...

MovieMaster - 12/7/2011, 2:33 PM
@Steping- Yes. And the trailer was shown at a Russian Film Expo today, so we might get a decent description sooner or later.
MovieMaster - 12/7/2011, 2:36 PM
@gyasiman- You serious dude?
AC1 - 12/7/2011, 2:37 PM
Oh, I love mad libs!
I can't be bothered filling it out though...
CraptainAmerica - 12/7/2011, 2:38 PM
Jean Paul Valley?! Really?!
NeoBaggins - 12/7/2011, 2:40 PM
And this is why Nolan is the G.O.A.T.

Let's go!
PapaEmeritus - 12/7/2011, 2:41 PM
This dude will die in the prologue... Bane will go after him and will kill him inside the plane, then will steal the device! Man, that is AWESOME!
PoPcornDude - 12/7/2011, 2:45 PM

'Bout time. Here we go bitches!
Viltrumite - 12/7/2011, 2:52 PM
I was literally just wondering if The Dark Knight Rises would have a viral campaign like The Dark Knight did. Really pleased to see it kicking off.
MovieMaster - 12/7/2011, 2:58 PM
The thing that intrigues me is that it says on the first pic that he has 2 kids.
Tajin88 - 12/7/2011, 3:00 PM
@MovieMaster- Not the trailer was shown there, it was the teaser we already saw.
NeoBaggins - 12/7/2011, 3:00 PM

Spidey91 - 12/7/2011, 3:03 PM
