Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Christian Bale in Uniform on The Dark Knight Rises Set


See, because Joseph Gordon-Levitt is playing a cop in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises”, and Christian Bale is playing Bruce Wayne, whose uniform, you can argue, is a suit and tie. Yeah, that’s the ticket. By the by, apparently rumors of the film shooting at the Occupy Wall Street protest did not come to fruition. Or did it?

Anyways, not a whole lot of spoilers here, just JGL and Bale on the film’s New York City set walking around getting ready for a scene. Or maybe shooting a scene. Either way, it looks like the two characters do know each other in the movie.

“The Dark Knight Rises” stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple, Josh Pence, and Nestor Carbonell.

    I see JGL’s character in this scene escorting Wayne through some kind of hostile crowd. I really hope Levitt is introduced as some variation of Robin/Nightwing. It may be going off of the beaten path and playing fast and loose with the source material but it would be wicked cool!

    When the kid from 3rd Rock seems as big next to CB you know that Bale was not good casting for the role. I just don’t see someone that I believe puts on the mask and becomes The BATMAN. I’ve enjoyed the movies but, I am also ready for a new take on the look of the character. I would love to see a BM that looks more like in the Arkham game. I also think Bale’s interest has waned some too and it comes across on film. Just my opinion mind you.

      Respect your opinion but, you got to remember these films made him a household name. Bale knows this as well and both films did well with critics and audiences.

        Yep. Totally agree. I own the first two and I’ll buy the next one when it comes out. I’ll most likely see it on opening night. I enjoyed them a lot even if I didn’t care for all of the story elements/changes. There is no denying that they are well done fun movies.

      While I think Arkham (Asylum and City) would make great source material for our next installments of the Batman Franchise (with a seasoned Batman instead of a Year1-3 verison) I think Bale really embodies the role perfectly. Sure his voice is greating under the cowel (wasn’t that bad in Begins he just needs to tone it down a little)but other than that he plays Wayne to perfection both the billionaire playboy and the obsessed vigilante. JGL is 5’10” and Bale is like 6’1″

    Wayne’s Lamborghini is being towed, and JGL won’t budge on it, as in, I don’t care how much money you have, mr. playboy billionaire, the law is the law and you are not above it.

    This of course would make a good impression on old Batman here, and he ends up asking Gordon about him, eventually uncovering his role as another cop he can trust.

    I would imagine that given the ending of the last movie, Batman is probably still a wanted man, and likely Bane is trying to draw him out of retirement to prove himself as both capable of creating enough problems to bring him out of retirement, and to prove that he is the only one bad enough to break the bat.

    I’m also going to bet Bane has some kind of terminal illness, and has limited time to do what he is trying to do. It makes sense, logically, to progress from the nihilistic and anarchistic Joker, to an all out, nothing to lose, cornered, dying psychopath.

    I would also guess that Tate/Talia wants to draw Batman out to avenge her father, and sees Bane as the perfect way, so she enlists the help of the Scarecrow to create an adrenalizing inhalant, only amplifying his already fight or flight mentality.

    While the police remain firmly anti-batman, they eventually realize that they must in fact let him stop Bane, restoring his credibility, and rightful place as gotham’s protector, with help from JGL,

    Meanwhile, I think Nolan will play Catwoman as yet another bored/mentally imbalanced, high class socialite, who turns from petty crimes for cheap thrills, to heists, to setting her sights on the ultimate mark- Bruce Wayne. She will also likely have some kind of personal vendetta against Wayne/ personal debt to Batman, discover they are the same, and choose to reconcile and aid him against Bane.

    Catwoman will die, Bane will Die, Gordon may or may not die, Batman will be critically injured/killed and or publicly outed as Bruce Wayne, because Nolan wants to end his original take with a bang, and not allow sequels that do not involve a reboot.

    Besides, what would be more “gritty” and “realistic” than Batman’s death and publicized identity?

    what do YOU think?
