THEORY #3 Batman dies in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’!
If you’re an avid comic book fan, you should know by now that Bane breaks Batman’s back during a fight and the caped crusader has to be replaced. This scenario is very likely to happen because in the trailer, we see Bruce Wayne sporting facial hair, looking quite beat up and presumably being held captive by Bane. Now, Netizens are already speculating that Batman will be killed in this movie, and we second their thoughts because of one very simple but powerful reason: Christopher Nolan! He has revealed that he doesn’t play by the rules, that his Batman films are his own stories to tell. So, with ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ being his last Bat film, we suspect he’ll go out with a bang and leaving everyone in a daze (remember ‘Inception’?). Not just that; some scenes in the trailer (Bane holding Batman’s mask), the dialogue (“I won’t bury you. I’ve buried enough members from the Wayne family,” says Alfred) and the tag lines (The Legend Ends) are pointing towards Batman’s death. And if this turns out to be the case, it could support the theory that Blake will sub in as the new Dark Knight.
