DARK KNIGHT RISES - Bane Story Details and Description of 6-Minute Prologue
There is so much about The Dark Knight Rises that we don't know, and I actually kind of like it that way! But when stuff hits the internet most of the time I read it because like many of you I just can't contain myself! It's like giving me a box of Jr. Mints at the movies and telling me not to eat it. Of course I'm going to eat it, I love Jr. Mints!
The following information come from RamaScreen who got it from an anonymous source, so we have no idea how legit this intel is, but it sounds like it could be. Just take what you read here with a grain of salt, and it does contain potential spoilers if it turns out being true.
Here's the description of the 6-minute prologue which will screen in IMAX with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol:
It is one of the assassinations ordered by Ra’s al Ghul. A mind blowing action sequence set aboard the Hercules plane, involving some innovative camera work ala Inception hallway fight scene. Bane and his mercenaries hijack a military plane transporting a dictator of a country which is in unrest (think Saddam Hussein type figure). He successfully kills the leader, but makes some mistakes along the way and is unable to safely land the plane. Because of the resulting injuries from the accident, he has to undergo complicated surgeries and that is how he winds up with that scar down his neck and the need for the mask to numb the pain.
Here's the detailed description of Bane:
Nolan has significantly rewrote the story of Bane from the comics. He is raised by Ra’s al Ghul and his up bringing mirrors that of Bruce Wayne. It’s a mirror of Bruce, except it’s darker and twisted. Bane is trained to be an assassin for the League of Shadows. He kills political figures that are deemed unfit by the LOS. So he is a bit of a Che Guevara/ Jason Bourne type character. A revolutionary and an assassin. He comes to Gotham to start a revolution by revealing the cover up dealing with Harvey Dent and killing the Mayor, among other key political figures.
Like I said, we cant count on this information being accurate, but I sounds like it could be! There are several details here that are right in line with what we have heard already. This just brings all of those bits and pieces together and makes it all make sense. This could very well be real, and if it is... awesome! I trust Nolan with this property and this is going to be a hell of a film!
What are your thoughts on these leaked details?
