Well if some things are lead to be believed this is the final chapter/movie of Christopher Nolan's Batman.

In a few years another Batman reboot is planned

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

It seems like Bruce is visiting Gordon in the hospital and not Batman, but it's hard to tell. With the dialouge, it seems Gordon may know Batman's identity, again it's hard to tell. What my guess is that obviously Gordon is in the hospital and is probably due to Bane. I think Batman will take a beating, but I think his "rise" will be a mental challenge. This movie is supposed to bring things full circle, so I imagine he will be re-inspired to take up the fight. I definately think there will be some suprises and Nolan style twists or whatever, but I really hope they leave us with Bruce alive and well and Batman bieng "accepted" somewhat as a good guy.

Yeah, but the format of the other two movies didn't really make it seem like it was leading to an epic conclusion of any kind. He's Batman. He doesn't conclude.

Batman Begins- Bruce figures out how to become Batman

The Dark Knight- Batman faces his first major threat in the form of the Joker. The Joker wears down Batman mentally and emotionally. In the end, Batman is hunted down.

The Dark Knight Rises- Bane tests Batman both mentally and physically.

As does every single one of his other villains. What's your point? There is nothing inherently epic or final about another random bad guy fighting Batman.

My point is that the series never had a clear destination, so it's very hard for me to get a sense of anticipation about this next movie being the end of an epic story because, really, it's not. It's just another Batman story. I know there will be more in some way or another.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

It's been more of a psychological journey, as we see Bruce learn what it takes to become a hero and accepting that role, and obviously the end will be him accepting that role.

Uhm, err, didn't he already do that in Batman Begins? And again in TDK?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

^ The whole trilogy has been about Bruce's journey to becoming Batman. Each film is a step towards Bruce fully becoming and accepting being Batman. Nolan has pretty much said this himself in prior interviews.

Love it.

As far as plots and such...

I think Bruce will be broken physically. Perhaps not broken spine, but something significant. Why?

Gordon's dialogue for one -- saying how Batman was "just gone" as if he disappeared, and that "the batman must come back" as if he's been out of action for a while and left Gotham.

Then we see someone doing push-ups. It looks like Bruce. Like Bruce sporting some facial hair. Batman would not grow a goatee unless he wasn't being Batman anymore.

^^^Well, Nolan could certainly have Batman badly injured and then jump ahead a year or five to a Gotham that's had to do without the Batman for all that time...

And that's fine. I'm not saying the story can't have an ending. But as far as epic conclusions go, there's a huge difference between "Harry finally battles Voldemort!" and "Bruce Wayne finally accepts his role as Batman!"

If someone destroyed Wayne Enterprises, Batman would be forced to retreat.
