The Dark Knight comes out this summer, July 20th.

In these new trailers, the movie depicts an uprising of the have nots. It mirrors the class warfare that we are seeing today. We all have seen how some movies placate to current events and sometimes even hint at predictions of what may come.

This movie looks freaking awesome. I don't put it past Hollywood to use the occupy movement, the civil class warfare or whatever you want to call it. This has my attention and I cant wait to see it.

The more I watch the new trailers the more "coincedences" I find. Feed my conspiratorial mind, feed it.

It seems like their conditioning the people for what "they" have planned. Civil unrest is what Obama and the rest of his ilk want in order to put all there orwellian laws in action. It's all about marshall law, and the subjugation of the people.

I'm not sure if it's because I just woke up, but it looks like it's going to be pretty lame. Faceless villian. Catwoman. Lame explosions. The only reason the last batman movie was a hit is because of Joker, not "sweet batmobile action"

Social unrest is a pretty common theme now a days, so I doubt it's foreshadowing anything. Plus the group causing the uprising looks to be full of gun toting prisioners and thugs. Hardly a good way to incite class warfare because no one wants to associate themselves with the underbelly of society. If anything, it's trying to connect the audience to the upper class so batman can become a hero to the audience when he brings about order.

I won't be paying to see this. Glad to see his batman voice is a lot less ridiculous this time around, but anne hathaway as catwoman? Final nail in the coffin.

To be fair the screenplay was done and filming had started months before Occupy started. We keep assuming it's a haves vs. have nots that we're seeing in these trailers but I don't think that's it. We already know R'as al Ghul will return in at least flashbacks. We also know that his daughter Talia will be in the movie. So I think what we're seeing is Bane performing the function that R'as originally wanted Bruce Wayne to perform. That is completely destroy Gotham. I think the sociopolitical aspects we're seeing in these trailers is the simple fact that when Bane begins destroying things the only ones who really have a means of escape are going to be the rich while everyone else will be trapped in the city.

What I find creepy, is how much the cop looks like Heather Ledger.The Joker,dead and deceased.

Then there is the line from the movie in which Ann Hathaway says... " You're all gonna wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us..." Seems a bit have and have-notty to me.

Assuming they keep Selena Kyle's backstory intact it makes sense. While she eventually works her way into the upper echelons of society she's always pretty much considered herself part of the lower class. There's also the fact that most people consider Catwoman to be a villain. Nolan had to come up with a way to portary her in such a way that makes the audience sympathetic towards her. An easy way to do this is to pretty much have her act like Robin Hood. So there may be a sub-plot of haves vs. have nots with Catwoman but I see it more as a way to develop the character. It's not going to culminate in this massive riot people seem to be expecting and I just don't see it as being a major theme of the movie.

I just read a piece in "ScifiNow" magazine #68 that states this is the last of this trilogy and there will be a reboot sometime after, Produced by Christopher Nolan.

It may even be a new character taking up the Batman role, (if Bruce Wayne is put out of action).

Just thought some might like to know.

Oh on a slightly unrelated note: The Green Arrow will get his own show, by the producers of Smallville, saying it's the new Smallville and it's titled "Arrow".

I really don't know how to feel about this. I feel like it's too soon to do a reboot after the Nolan movies but at the same time I have been wanting a live action version of Year One and I do want to see a proper version of Robin on the big screen. I also feel like Green Arrow deserves more recognition but I hate the style of Smallville.
