The Dark Knight Rises (2012): Film Cell Reveals Bane In Control Of Gotham City? (Spoilers)


963 A recent image of a Film Cell for The Dark Knight Rises has made its way on to the net, which features a description of the plot as well as a couple rather interesting images.

We see that Commission Gordon is listed as a "fugitive" as well as to "report on site."

Then we have an image of Bane, with "I have Your Back!" and Gotham City in the background.

Update: FilmCells Ltd. asked us to take the pictures down as it wasn't approved for public display.

The description also reveals that Bruce Wayne will get "back into action."

We know from set images and video that all hell is to break loose as Batman is to lead Gotham's finest in an all-out battle against Bane and his mercenaries.

What we don't know is, just what leads up to that point?

Various rumors we have been told stated that upon Bane's arrival he takes out Batman, which enables him to take control of Gotham. The citizens of Gotham turn to Bane, as they believe siding with the villain will save them. Bruce eventually returns, where Gordon was attempting to save the city on his own, which is why he is hospitalized in the trailers. And this inspires Bruce to return as Batman even faster!

The same Film Cell company,, also released the following Batman Vs. Bane promo image, which seems to feature Bane jacked up on Venom.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th, 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christian Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred, Juno Temple and Josh Pence as a young Ra's al Ghul.
