RUMOR: A Major Character Will Meet His/Her End In TDKR

The rumor mill suggests that a major character from all three Christopher Nolan Batman movies will be killed off in this final installment. Obviously major (potential) SPOILERS ahead so do not even click on the article if you don't wanna know em..

I have received word from a source working on the Pittsburgh set of The Dark Knight Rises that a major and well loved character from Nolan's movies will meet a violent end in the director's third and final movie. Having checked into it a little more and seeing several other reports of this on various forums I figured it was worth posting as a rumor at least. So this may not be true, but obviously don't read any further if you don't want to know who might kick the bucket.

Apparently Lucius Fox played by Morgan Freeman in all three Batman movies by Christopher Nolan meets his end in TDKR. Word is that he is murdered but by whom seems to be little more than guesswork, some saying Bane more feeling that it will be Marion Cotillard's character Miranda Tate(believed to be Talia Al Ghul). My source didn't mention any of that, just that he is killed and he reckons it is a prelude to the Batman/Bane scrap on the steps we have seen so much footage of.

What do you guys think? Could we be saying goodbye to Lucius? I'm not sure it really makes to much sense given what we already(think we) know of the story so far. Jim Gordon already seemingly suffers at the hands of one of Batman's foes, most likely prompting Batman to "come back". Killing Lucius might be a bit much. But, it's all conjecture at this point anyway. We will find out soon enough. For now confirm or debunk below.

It's possible. We do see Bane with the prototype tumblers.
CherryBomb - 8/7/2011, 2:35 PM

Damn, I would've hoped it would be Gordon!
and then Joseph Gordon Levitt's character takes over or something.

Why would anyone kill a character that Morgan Freeman is play? I mean the man is MORGAN FREEMAN
hoperidesalone - 8/7/2011, 2:38 PM
You put "spoiler" in the description above, and say not to read ahead.. yet you post a giant [frick]ing picture of Morgan Freeman?
DaenerysTargaryen - 8/7/2011, 2:38 PM
Aww man....they can't kill god....wait I mean Morgan freeman...whatever he played god once. :P
hoperidesalone - 8/7/2011, 2:39 PM
I stand corrected :) Didn't read the description properly.
SugarYumYum - 8/7/2011, 2:40 PM
Nah.... you can't kill God. :-P
zmikey - 8/7/2011, 2:40 PM
It's obvious if any main character will die it's him-
Gordon will remain alive because he's the tie to the police, also his daughter's got a chance of becoming Batgirl if any other film's made in the future
Alfred is impossible to kill- many have tried, each time he's came out alive.
Bruce'd never die, as he's the main character

It's the conclusion to Nolan's trilogy, so it wouldn't surprise me. It will most likely be back to reboot land after this one so they can kill off anyone they feel will add more to the story in this film.

@HopeRidesAlone The description says not to click on the article if you didn't wanna know the rumor...yet you [frick]ing click on it. :P
Anyways, I kinda called this. Figured Lucius was the most likely to get killed off. Pretty sad though, great character.
PaulRom - 8/7/2011, 2:41 PM
@Hoperidesalone NVM, just saw your second comment. ;P

silverdog - 8/7/2011, 2:47 PM
guess bruce wayne has to find a new "Q" for the next movie..
Supes17 - 8/7/2011, 2:47 PM
Yeah it's Thalia, she takes over..
I mean she obviously gives the bad guys Batman's toys...
Bane and henchmen with the Tumblers.

Supes17 - 8/7/2011, 2:48 PM
Lmao I love the "Kick the Bucket" pun
Gamester76 - 8/7/2011, 2:48 PM
^^Lol
AC1 - 8/7/2011, 2:49 PM
I actually thought he might. It'll be heartbreaking, but if it's done right it could be a great part of the film
Lert - 8/7/2011, 2:50 PM
how in the hell is stuff like this leaked if it is in fact true.. we didnt hear a damn word about TDK throughout the whole shoot and we're given this and all else we've seen lately... what gives
Gamester76 - 8/7/2011, 2:50 PM
That was supposed to be @Despero.

Anyway, I smell Oscar in this film's future...

Skip to :55
Joker08 - 8/7/2011, 2:54 PM
I don't believe it. The exact same thing was being spread around the internet by people on the "inside" while The Dark Knight was in production...
JWStubner - 8/7/2011, 2:55 PM
Makes total sense considering we've seen Bane and the League of Assassins racing around with tumbler prototypes.
TheYesGuy - 8/7/2011, 2:58 PM
TOLD U SO.. Either him or Alfred had to die..!!!
JackDexx - 8/7/2011, 3:00 PM
let hope it's nolan's fanboys!
TayDee - 8/7/2011, 3:06 PM
That would suck, lucious doesnt deserve to die
JackDexx - 8/7/2011, 3:12 PM
better no [frick]ing be morgan freedman. he's the only good character in these films god damn it.
revloveR - 8/7/2011, 3:14 PM
the black guy dies in a movie? what a surprise.
spidey1994 - 8/7/2011, 3:16 PM
I thought it would be Gordon since he's in a hospital bed in the trailer and looks pretty banged up.
AlexDeLarge87 - 8/7/2011, 3:16 PM
TayDee@ thats why it might happen.
GillytheKid33 - 8/7/2011, 3:17 PM
I dont want him to kick the bucket. But he really didnt have much purpose in TDK except to run Wayne Enterprise and play with the big computer. But I guess this will mean Bruce will be running the big company at the end. He will be missed the last 45 mins of the movie :(
Hawksblueyes - 8/7/2011, 3:17 PM
This is probably ture. Nolan has killed "good guys" in both of the other Batfilms. Of course Bruces parents were supposed to die but then he killed Racheal Dawgface in TDK. Of course he has to kill a good guy in this one.
revloveR - 8/7/2011, 3:20 PM
i said i'd stop reading stuff about this movie, nd here i am. :(
LucasMend - 8/7/2011, 3:23 PM
how do you kill God? lol
But who knows, Lucius may be the hostage on that scene with Bane at the Gotham Rogues game
jjmeylar - 8/7/2011, 3:23 PM
That sucks. I was hoping that Bats would die and someone else would take up his mantel.
AlexDeLarge87 - 8/7/2011, 3:27 PM
I wouldnt kill any of Bruce´s/Batman´s "mentors"

It would be enough if someone of them almost dies through Bane´s or Marion Cotillard´s mysterious character´s hands!

But im not against it if they kill one of them.
DoctorAlgernopKrieger - 8/7/2011, 3:31 PM
hopefully he has some sort of Heart Attack like he had in the Comic Books except he dies.
PirateOpossum - 8/7/2011, 3:31 PM
i have totally lost interest in this movie.
Otisburg - 8/7/2011, 3:35 PM
about damn time! Luscious should of died in TDK...I thought wayne built his own stuff anyways like in the comics...but in the nolans movies he has someone else building his stuff....so its about time.
