If you’re trying to stay spoiler-free about The Dark Knight Rises, now is a good time to stop reading. This post contains spoiler about a scene in the movie.
So at some point in the movie, Bruce Wayne apparently becomes Bane’s prisoner, and Catwoman is either working for Bane or pretending that she’s working for Bane to rescue Wayne. Not sure whether Bruce Wayne is in Bane’s captivity because Bane knows he’s Batman, or because he’s rich-guy-billionaire Bruce Wayne. The description of the scene from LA Times Hero Complex Blog:
Gotham City is a war zone. A ruthless madman named Bane has ripped away any sense of security and the citizens, haggard and clutching suitcases with refugee anxiety, sit behind barbed wire waiting to see what will blow up next. A hooded prisoner is dragged in – it’s Bruce Wayne, one of Gotham’s most famous faces – but the eyes of the crowd go instead to the woman in black standing at the top of the staircase.
“Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane needs these guys himself,” says sultry Selina Kyle, played here by actress Anne Hathaway, navigating the steps with stiletto heels that, on closer inspection, turn out to have serrated edges capable of leaving nasty claw marks in a fight. She also wears high-tech goggles that, when not in use, flip up and resemble feline ears.
I guess this explains the scene in the trailer when Bruce Wayne was shown bearded and unshaven, asking someone (is that Alfred? Have they captured Alfred, too?) what the others were chanting. I thought that scene is a flashback to when he was training with The League of Shadows.
The article is actually about Anne Hathaway and her thoughts about playing Selina Kyle/Catwoman. The spoiler-laden scene description is just the opening. Definitely worth reading in full.
