Will Christopher Nolan Kill Off Batman In THE DARK KNIGHT RISES?
In the new issue of Empire Magazine there is a great spread on The Dark Knight Rises. The article begins with a chilling quote from screenwriter David Goyer that has to make you wonder.
Shortly after the success of 2008's The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan and David Goyer sat down for lunch to discuss a third Batman film. They ran over ideas, looking for a way to top their last effort. At some point while scarfing down their meals they began to envision the final scene of the third film, that would become The Dark Knight Rises.
"The final scene of The Dark Knight Rises is exactly that scene we talked about then," says Goyer, speaking to Empire from his LA office almost four years later. "It remained completely unchanged. We both knew in our hearts that we were onto something special. I have to tell you, having finally seen everthing strung together a little while ago and seeing that scene, I got a complete lump in my throat."
With a hint like that Empire Magazine pressed Goyer a little further.
Nolan, it would seem, is committing commercial sacrilege. "Yup," agrees Goyer.
"That's why it's fucking exciting!"
The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.
