Gary Oldman Talks About The Dark Knight Rises

— Posted by Ian Fay

In a recent interview with MTV, Gary Oldman spoke a little about his thoughts on The Dark Knight Rises story, saying how he thinks its better then The Dark Knight. Check out the vid guys.

I find it very interesting how he says the story comes back to Batman Begins, probably refering to Talia Al Ghul making an appearance. I like the idea of the trilogy coming full circle, as long as it doesnt feel forced. Io9 also highlighted a rather interesting quote regarding tha main villain of the piece:

“I think it’s a villain from one of the old, old, from way back from the old comics… It is a Batman villian… It’s not going to be the Joker.”

Hmmm… could be refering to Catwoman, because Bane is a reletively modern character. Io9 also speculate it could be Hugo Strange. Time will tell.
Any thoughts on who it might be?

    Ian you may be right, it could be refering to Hugo Strange cause he’s a really old villian too, who appeared before the Joker in a 1940 Detective Comic starring Batman. I still don’t know how Nolan could top Dark Knight. Impossible feat in my opinion. Can’t wait to see the result though.
