Okay. There’s something that’s shown up on the web the last few days that *could be* The Dark Knight Rises related as the three virals do have some kind of uprising at Arkham, where the inmates are supposedly chanting Bane’s name. However, there’s two other connections to the films as well. The big question is if they are legit or not.
A new Youtube channel called The Fire Rises have posted three short videos which show fires raging across Gotham City. Anthony Michael Hall appears in the final short clip as the news anchor Engel, who was originally featured in The Dark Knight. This third clip also leads to a Facebook Page containing an image of Matthew Modine as Nixon.
Not Richard Nixon, of course, but “Nixon” is allegedly a crooked politician of some sort and it loosely reminds one of the “campaign for Harvey Dent”. Also, the previous film had viral marketing as well.
I viewed the clips, to me, it’s garbled telecasts and the inmate chant.
But Gotham burns, as The League Of Shadows wanted it to…
What say you- fan made or the real deal?
***UPDATE*** Despite the ‘chant” appearing here word is getting out that these videos (especially the impressive third one) are faked due to ‘silence from WB’. The site, however, is not.
