So as filming continues in Pittsburgh for The Dark Knight Rises it seems more of the plot is getting revealed… I don’t plan to discuss that here. We all know Bane and the League of Shadows will be a major conflict in the film. We know Anne Hathaway will play Catwoman. But as pictures are flowing from the set and small plot details are leaked, bigger rumors continue to flow. Now to make it clear these are rumors and nothing is confirmed. But it seems Bane busts several people out of prison to create an army of sorts to destroy Gotham. Rumors are circulating that there will be references and possible appearances by the Joker and Two-Face. Now Nolan has made it clear no new actor would play the Joker. So I assume he will be referenced to off hand and never really seen. The idea of seeing Two Face again though is exciting. For me I never really liked how Dent went down in The Dark Knight. SPOILER…. At the end when Batman tackles him off the ledge I didn’t really believe the fall would have killed him. Also in the comics they pulled this trick a number of times, thinking that Two Face was dead but it turned out he wasn’t. For me I thought it would be interesting if Gordon locked Dent away in Arkham so he could be a symbol. Then if Bane broke him out he could use him to destroy to morale of the city. Again I doubt either of these things are true. Maybe a Joker reference could work but bringing in Two Face might be too much in an already stuffed film.
