TDKR: David S. Goyer Discusses The Theme Of The Film And Occupy Wall Street Relevance
The Dark Knight Rises co-writer David S. Goyer spoke to MTV about the themes present in the film and its possible association with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Check it out!
While attending the red-carpet premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, David S. Goyer spoke to the guys over at MTV about the theme of the film and its possible relation to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Goyer promptly dismissed it as nothing more than a rumor, stating that is was "kind of luck" that the theme of The Dark Knight Rises ended up sharing similarities with that of the movement.
Batman has always been the most grounded of the major superheroes, he doesn't have any superpower, doesn't come from an alien planet, things like that, but our approach from the very beginning was that we were going to treat this as real-world as possible within the superhero confines. It was just kind of luck that the themes we were dealing with in this film happened to coincide with the Occupy Wall Street, 99 percent thing. We couldn't have planned that. It just sort of happened. We try to make them as meaningful. Hopefully, they're sort of like a Greek myth that reflects back on what's happening in today's politics.
The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, and Anne Hathaway, and is directed by Christopher Nolan. The film can now be seen at your local theater.
