It has been eight years since the last Chris Nolan Batman flick and the director reveals in a new interview that the time gap will most certainly factor into the story.
So much is shrouded in mystery about The Dark Knight Rises that fans will take just about any nugget of information to quench their desire for MORE MORE MORE. Chris is well aware of the growing need for intel, so he shared a bit of insight to the LA Times about how the movie will kick off. He explains:
"It will make a lot more sense to people when they see the film. But it's not a great mystery — it's the jumping-off point for the film — but it's hard for me to articulate it. I think the mood at the beginning of the film will make a lot of sense. If I had to express it thematically, I think what we're saying is that for Batman and Commissioner Gordon, there's a big sacrifice, a big compromise, at the end of the 'The Dark Knight' and for that to mean something, that sacrifice has to work and Gotham has to get better in a sense. They have to achieve something for the ending of that film — and the feeling at the end of that film — to have validity. Their sacrifice has to have meaning and it takes time to establish that and to show that, and that's the primary reason we did that."
Can you picture it in your mind? Or is he still being too vague?
Personally, considering all the photos and footage we've seen so far, we have no doubt that Chris is going to deliver an extraordinary picture, one that will most definitely live up to the hype.
He did it once before, he can most certainly do it again!
