Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

You know, there's another way of looking at the title. Consider "Rises" in the context of the word immediately preceding it. After someone is knighted, he rises from a kneeling position. "Rise, Sir Bedevere, Knight of Camelot." He knelt as an ordinary man and now rises as a knight, as one who has taken on a new honor, a new role. So if the story is about Batman being rehabilitated in the public eye and maybe taking on a new role as their protector in a more formal capacity (or something), the title The Dark Knight Rises could be symbolically appropriate.
