Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Jean Paul really didn't have that much bulid...sure he did but he wasn't over the top monstrous. He continued to "pump iron" and improve himself over the course of his time as Batman. At first he was pretty athletic looking when he first took over as Batman and wearing Bruce's costume. It wasn't until the St. Dumas conditioning kicked in that he became a beast.

I don't think John Blake is going to be corrupt. As a matter of fact, I think he's going to be one of the only good cops and an indication of the future.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

That's that other possibility. Maybe he's Gordon's inside guy on the police task force which maybe is headed up by this Nixon character?

Yeah, that's what I thought. Nixon (Matthew Modine) will presumably be corrupt with a name like that (I am NOT a crook!)

Sorry. I didn't know you couldn't to this.
This message board forcing you to essentially steal content to host it on your own webspace is nothing new. Which is funny, because inline linking does not violate copyright law, rehosting does.
It hardly violates copyright law to rehost an image unless you claim it's your own image and some how profit from that.

Anyway, the hosting thing is less about law and more about not stealing bandwith (money) from someone else.

Seems like it's the real deal. Bane sounds good to me.

^Well, that might explain the persistant rumor that Liam Neeson is in the movie.

Hmmm, not sure. Maybe there's some kind of loophole that she's using so she's not lying?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Not a liar...misdirecting us for the sake of preserving a plot secret maybe. Remember as we've discussed before this has happened in "Batman Begins" with Ken Wannatabe and Liam Neeson. Can't remember how the two of them handled the press questions about their characters but I think the twist regarding their secret was contained well until the movie's premiered. Unless you were one who read the leaked script you probably wouldn't have known about it until you saw the movie.

It's also very possible that Marion didn't know about her character until she started to film her part. I remember when she was first cast that the question regarding Talia came up on a red carpet event before filming started and she first said no. So this could have changed during production. It's not really a big deal if they're trying to preserve a plot twist.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Nolan talks Bane and the 8 year jump here http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=85075

"I didn't know him very well," says Nolan of the comic book iteration of Bane. "David Goyer got me a bunch of stuff on him and we looked into him. I only knew him by name, I wasn't familiar with his back story. He's a very cool character. And getting an actor like Tom to take it on, you know you're going to get something very special. Tom is somebody who really knows how to put character into every gesture, every aspect of his physicality in the way that great actors can... With Bane, the physicality is the thing. With a good villain you need an archetype, you know, you need the extreme of some type of villainy. The Joker is obviously a particular archetype of diabolical, chaotic anarchy and has a devilish sense of humor. Bane, to me, is something we haven't dealt with in the films. We wanted to do something very different in this film. He's a primarily physical villain, he's a classic movie monster in a way but with a terrific brain. I think he's a fascinating character. I think people are going to get a kick out of what we've done with him."

"It will make a lot more sense to people when they see the film," Nolan explains. "But it's not a great mystery, it's the jumping-off point for the film, but it's hard for me to articulate it. I think the mood at the beginning of the film will make a lot of sense. If I had to express it thematically, I think what we're saying is that for Batman and Commissioner Gordon, there's a big sacrifice, a big compromise, at the end of the 'The Dark Knight' and for that to mean something, that sacrifice has to work and Gotham has to get better in a sense. They have to achieve something for the ending of that film and the feeling at the end of that film to have validity. Their sacrifice has to have meaning and it takes time to establish that and to show that, and that's the primary reason we did that. It's a time period that is not so far ahead that we would have to do crazy makeup or anything, which I think would be distracting, but it gave them something to get their teeth into, particularly Christian in terms of [portraying] this guy who has been frozen in this moment in time with nowhere to go. He really has done an incredible job figuring out how to characterize that and express that."
