THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Toy Packaging Debunks Rumor Of Mysterious Character

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Toy Packaging Debunks Rumor Of Mysterious Character

Yesterday a few sites, like our own posted a story about an image of The Dark Knight Rises' toys that lead some people to believe that there might be a new mysterious character in the film. Also, I've included some new t-shirts for the film.

Yesterday a few sites made quite a big deal about the Bruce Wayne toy that you can see labeled on the packaging below. There was plenty of wild speculation of who the figure could be, but as you can clearly see it's just Bruce Wayne.

The shirts below can be purchased at

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.

LOL "Wild speculation"? I'm pretty sure everyone knew it was Bruce Wayne. Anyway, thanks for confirming it nailbiter!

This is because idiots jump to conclusions whenever they see something slightly different to what they expect.
Wildaniel - 5/24/2012, 12:42 PM
Why dont they make a Catwoman shirt for men? I would wear those Carwoman shirts, lol
AC1 - 5/24/2012, 12:42 PM
perfect naming logic there, calling the light grey/shiny blue version of Batman with Wolverine claws 'Stealth Vision Batman'... I guess wearing an all black costume and only operating at night wasn't stealthy enough :|
jazzman - 5/24/2012, 12:44 PM
we all said it was Bruce Wayne what a waste of a article LOL

hunh. if it's a "Battle for Gotham" set, why two Batmen in there? why not a cop figure or a Bane henchman or even Gordon? John Blake?.........nope not screaming anything fishy, but does seem like a wasted opportunity to me.

i don't think anyone on this site thought it was anyone else but bruce wayne.

but i'm glad the mystery has been solved.

Looks like he's decked out as head of the League of Shadows. Maybe the only way to beat them is to join them?

Batman looks like he is shoving a double dildo in Banes face.
MtnMan - 5/24/2012, 12:52 PM
Stealth Vision Batman?

ralfinader - 5/24/2012, 12:53 PM
Whoever started that rumor, and enyone else that bought into it, needs to get their eyes checked.
INSTANTJUSTICE - 5/24/2012, 12:59 PM
I don't think anyone ever thought it was anyone other than Bruce Wayne but web sites looking for a story.
JDUKE25 - 5/24/2012, 12:59 PM
Those Catwoman shirts aren't bad.

What? Fans got overexcited and made a big deal out of something insignificant? This has to be a first.

xmen145 - 5/24/2012, 1:47 PM

Thegeekygurl - 5/24/2012, 1:51 PM

KalEl1996 - 5/24/2012, 1:53 PM
"You have my permission to die." I want that shirt!
cabbie655 - 5/24/2012, 2:01 PM
Both Bane t-shirts kick ass. The others look cool too.
superotherside - 5/24/2012, 2:01 PM
Called it. :)
GiantNerd - 5/24/2012, 2:03 PM
You mean its not the villain known only as "The Vest"?
deanwilkins - 5/24/2012, 2:26 PM
I agree with grif! Who could have possibly thought it was anyone other than Bruce?

Those toys look like they came out in the 90's!
Jer3miah - 5/24/2012, 2:41 PM
No d'uh. Speculation, my left nut. The sites were just low on news and decided to create speculation on something obviously stupid.
TruePunishment - 5/24/2012, 3:14 PM
"Stealth Vision Batman" is rockin' some serious Wolverine envy!
DioFoRio - 5/24/2012, 3:30 PM
Maybe JGL's character dons the moniker of ninja Bruce Wayne. Wearing a Bruce Wayne mask and shit....
leftcoastpunk - 5/24/2012, 3:47 PM
Wait a minute, if that's bruce then that means...OMG! OMG! Three batmans in the movie! Friggin' sweet!
@monkey - what evs dude, wearing ed hardy tattoos on your clothes is wayyyy cooler than having real work done.
BillyBatson1000 - 5/24/2012, 3:57 PM
BRING ON the movie already!!!!!!!!!!
captainloser - 5/24/2012, 4:26 PM
Uh, that's a repaint of the Bruce Wayne figure from Batman Begins. My son has it in his bedroom-- the chest is gold instead of gray. Way to recycle!
monstalova - 5/24/2012, 4:50 PM
Again CBM writers like to spread stupid rumours from nothing! Why??? Morons could see that its Bruce Wayne!
preacher - 5/24/2012, 5:29 PM
Is that Bane shirt that's posted at the start of the comments section real? I'd LOVE to have that shirt! And, if so, where do I get one?
ThePowerCosmic - 5/24/2012, 7:51 PM
