Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)
Not with Bruce as Batman, unless they're going to ruin Nolan's story, which they aren't.
Bane wants the people to rise up and take back the city from the rich... but he's going to blow it up anyway? So what's the point?
He explained that pretty clearly to Bruce/the audience: he's going to slowly torture the city until it dies. Ra's always wanted the city's destruction to be a giant spectacle for the rest of the world.
