Do we have plot details for The Dark Knight Rises?

It sounds like we do, thanks to the crafty folks over at Badass Digest. And the details certainly work for me!

As written by the Badass boys, who cite an unconfirmed but trusted source, Anne Hathaway is indeed Catwoman, but she's not the villain of the piece. She and Batman go after the League of Shadows, who were the bad guys in Batman Begins. The League is led by none other than Talia Al Ghul, Ras's daughter. Bane (Tom Hardy), is Talia's possible love interest and the League apparently tries to finish what it started in the first movie. Somehow Joseph Gordon-Levitt figures into all this and, according to The Digest, he's a bad guy too.

This makes sense, and it sounds pretty damn solid. Writer/director Christopher Nolan is known for his misinformation, but it's fun to speculate on what could be. If this is indeed the plot for The Dark Knight Rises, then I'm sold.

The final Batman film is due in theatres July 2012.

  1. It'd be interesting to see Anne Hathaway as Catwoman- and what style of costume they're going to use- classic black one piece catsuit... or the leather catsuit with googles currently being used in the comics.

    And I could see the League of Shadows returning, especially since Batman's been "discredited" after Dent's death, they'd see it as a chance to strike amongst the instabilit.

    Bane as Talia's love interest? Don't quite see it, as Ras had always intended for her to father Batman's child (which she actually does in the comic).

    Otherwise, sounds like a solid and decent premise to me.
