The Dark Knight Rises Movie Highlights

Updated on July 21, 2012

The most anticipated movie of the 2012 year is finally here: Christian Nolan’s epic conclusion to the Dark Night trilogy – The Dark Knight Rises. *This article contains spoilers, so if you plan on watching the movie you may not want to continue reading* For those of you who can’t find a baby-sitter so that you can watch this two hour and forty-four minute movie, or may have been spooked about watching due to the Colorado tragedy that happened at the midnight showing, or you just want to know some surprises that happens – here’s some spoilers. *A lot of these spoilers are those that are well known by comic followers but are nice surprises for those who aren’t*



Bane (Tim Hardy) is a great villain – terrifying to say the least. But throughout the movie it is hard to understand what he is saying, so expect to say ‘huh?’ a lot. Bane breaks Batman’s back and imprisons him for some time. Bane is assumed to be killed by a gun shot by Catwoman, but it is not confirmed if he dies or not.



Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard) is revealed to be Talia al Ghul, who is the true mastermind behind Gotham’s destruction.



Batman takes a bomb away from Gotham city in ‘The Bat’ and dies in the explosion. However, Alfred later sees Bruce in Florence, Italy with Selina Kyle (Anna Hathaway). Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) learns that Bruce was able to fix the auto-pilot patch before the explosion. Batman dies but Bruce Wayne lives – a more than fair ending.



John Blake (Joseph Gordon Levitt) is revealed to be Robin at the end of the movie. He says that his name is “Robin John Blake” and the ending shot of the movie shows Blake in the Bat-cave. He never suits up, but his Batman signal is revealed.



Alfred (Michael Caine) quits, hoping that it will convince Bruce to stop being Batman. At the end of the movie Alfred gets that wish.

So those are a few highlights from the movie. Hopefully you’ll be able to see the movie and experience the action for yourself.

      Good overview that was useful to me because many of my landlubber friends really like this movie and I have not seen it. At least now I know basically what happened.

      I've found that a LOT of people don't like Robin - but I'm a huge JGL fan so I would love to see him play Robin =)

      I don't usually like Robin, but the way they included him was cool. JGL would be an interesting Robin.

      I would have to add Bruce returning the dark inner place of the well he fell into as a young boy and now must climb out of from the depths of his pain for full resolution of character and personal victory... I too loved the Robin bit at the end, in fact, somehow the way the story was constructed, Robin and Talia both came as surprise twists to me, weird as I'm a 50 year reader who was a fanzine editor as far back as the 60's... anyway, if you care to read my own hub review check
