Now for the latest on The Dark Knight Rises, once again brought to you by Cosmic Book News.
This time we have some possible info on Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character, John Blake.
Blake is said to be a new police officer in Gotham City, drafted into the police force as part of a special task force with the sole purpose being to capture Batman. The initiation is a joint implementation between Mayor Garcia and a reluctant Commissioner Gordon.
At the start of the film, the Batman Squad are still on a mission to capture Batman, but when Bane and his mercenaries attack and take over the city, the police force becomes almost none existent.
Those early reports of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character working with the League of Shadows are false.
Blake is one of the more pro-active police officers who wants to fight Bane's mercenaries, but no police officer will stand up to them after Bane put Gordon in the hospital.
Batman's return, and also Matthew Modine's character, inspire the rest of the force to take back their city from Bane. This eventually starts with smaller attacks on Bane's forces before an all out battle at the film's climax takes place. Batman, with the help of Catwoman, are trying to stop Bane and a revealed Talia al Ghul from destroying the city and finishing her father's work of destroying Gotham.
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.
