New Dark Knight Rises Poster

Very similar to the fist teaser poster we saw, this poster has the bat symbol, which outlines a crumbling Gotham, set ablaze with a intimidating figure of Batman standing admits the carnage. While it is derivative of the first poster I do like this new version.

This poster does  raise a question for me and that is the motivation of the villain Bane in this movie. In the movie The Dark Knight the motivation for the Joker’s psychopathic rampage was to simply watch things be destroyed. That does make for a frightening and interesting villain. I don’t think they can repeat that motivation. Bane does look like he is bent on destroying Gotham but what is his motivation for doing so? Based on rumors my opinion is that this movie will come full circle and resolve elements of Batman Begins which depicted Ra’s al Ghul and the League of Shadows as a misguided group wanting to destroy evil. I think Bane will be an instrument of Ra’s al Ghul and the League of Shadows intention of destroying Gotham as a means of ridding the world of evil. 


About liamfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
