In Our Time Of Need: A Dark Knight Rises

This weekend like many of you, I went to see The Dark Knight Rises. It was an excellent end to Christopher Nolan’s trilogy and what I feel is the epitome of superhero movies. Batman is and always has been my favorite superhero. Sure he doesn’t have cool mutant powers like the X-Men nor did he get bit by a radioactive spider, Batman’s super powers stem from his humanity. Batman fans all have their favorite version of our hero but I think no one has captured the duality of Bruce Wayne/Batman better than Christian Bale. This is no doubt also a credit to Christopher Nolan for realizing Bale’s intensity matches his own dark vision of the superhero.

The build up to The Dark Knight Rises hailed it as an epic that could possibly dethrone The Avengers as this years top film, as well as this years top comicbook-to-film adaptation. The Dark Knight must return from his reclusive life in the halls of Wayne Manor to face an enemy that outdoes him in terms of both strength and intelligence- Bane. Batman must stop Bane from raising the city of Gotham while fighting his inner demons that have plagued him as well as dealing with his dark past, which has finally caught up with him. Does The Dark Knight Rises do justice for The Caped Crusader? Hit the break for the fullspoiler free review.

Anticipation has been building steadily ever since the first mention of Christopher Nolan‘s trilogy closer and now, to further the pain of waiting for the June release date, a new batch of promotional posters have been released. The posters show off the three primary characters of the Dark Knight Rises, with one batch set against a background with a colour scheme reminiscent of the original trailer. If this is not enough to get you excited for the Dark Knight’s return more information has been revealed Joseph Gordon Levitt’s character. There was original speculation that he may be Dick Grayson but it has been revealed that he will in fact be playing Alberto Falcone.
Falcone? You read that right! The name sound familiar because Joseph Gordon Levitt’s character is the son of Carmin Falcone, the mobster who was chained to the spotlight in Batman Begins. Could we see a vengeful son out for revenge against Batman? We can only speculate as Christopher Nolan has kept any plot details very under wraps.
Hit the jump for the poster in all their glory!

“Do you think he’s coming back?” “I don’t know.”
Odd to hear those words and know they’re being spoken about the Dark Knight. One thing we always could count on was him being there, in the shadows, waiting to serve justice and knock the teeth out of some filthy low-life. But after the events of The Dark Knight, it’s a different Gotham. A Gotham in need of its guardian. And no one knows if he’ll come to their aid this time.
The newest trailer for The Dark Knight Rises sets the mood perfectly for this summer’s trilogy ender. Gotham may not have been this down in many, many years and Bane is here to finish it off. He has business to take care of with Batman and it won’t be over until he’s broken Bruce Wayne. The whole atmosphere of the trailer delivers serious chills as viewers can watch the mayhem start to unfold. The desperation is visible not just in the ordinary citizens’ eyes but also those of the heroes. It’s almost heart breaking to watch.
Hit the break and see it for yourselves. These next few months are going to be long!
