The movie is nearly here, so let’s take a look at 5 things you may have missed while watching the DKR trailer. I bet that you haven’t caught all of this while watching it.
So here’s the trailer. Read below and stop at the appropriate times to see what I’m talking about.
5. The Robin logo
At 0:14, take a look at the guys holding up letters. The R is the same type of R that Robin used back in the day. This could be hinting at Robin/Nightwing rising up to take over Batman’s place as Gotham’s hero. There has been ongoing speculation about John Blake being Robin/Nightwing, so this isn’t as improbable as one would think.
4. Bruce Wayne with a Cane
At 0:22, you could clearly see that Bruce Wayne has a cane. Is this a clip at the beginning of the movie, or from the end? In the comics, Bane breaks Batman’s back. Maybe something similar happens in DKR.
3. Harvey Dent’s Memorial
At 0:36, you could see a picture of Harvey Dent, and Gordon going up on stage to give a speech of some sort. You probably noticed this. But it’s more important than you may think. The Dark Knight Rises takes place 8 years after the events of the Dark Knight. 8 years after Dent’s death, the people of Gotham are still remembering him. This is proof that Joker’s plan of an “ace in the hole” didn’t pay off. The people of Gotham are mourning Harvey Dent, whose death they see as Batman’s fault. They aren’t going to be very welcoming to Batman when he returns. Not instantly, that is.
2. Anne Hathaway and the Pearl Necklace
At 0:54, you see Anne Hathaway wearing a pearl necklace that is very similar to the one that was Bruce Wayne’s mother’s in Batman Begins…is it the same one? Catwoman is a thief, and we saw her in Wayne Manor in the trailer. Is her whole motivation for being there revolving around stealing this necklace? Maybe so. It’s obvious that the Cat and Bat won’t get along instantly regardless.
At 1:31, you see the back of the player’s jersey. It reads ‘Ward.’ Hines Ward is a player for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He and a few other big Steelers are said to be in the film, playing on Gotham’s football team. Believe it or not, the explosion was real, of course dramatized through post production, but Ward had to literally run for his life.
So that’s all I have for you guys. For all those going to see the movie at midnight, enjoy. I will be seeing it on Friday, and the review will be up before I fly out to Jersey. Have a great day, and let me know if you didn’t catch these things before this post. I love your comments. 🙂
