It Goes Without Saying That This Is Completely Read At Your Own Risk
I told myself I wasn't going to do it.... but I did. The Dark Knight Rises comes out Friday at 12:01 in the States, but has been out overseas for a short amount of time. That being said, a lot of people know what happens already, and are posting it on the internet. If you're the person that likes to know these things before you see a movie, then by all means keep reading. If you're not one of those people, seriously, just stop now. This is a film that's going to be much more worth i if you go in blind. You've had your final warning, so here it is.
Here we go. Until I see the film myself, this is in list-form. After that I'll update to summarize each point.
Miranda Tate (Bruce's love interest) is Talia Al Ghul, Ra's Al Ghul's daughter
Bane breaks Batman's back, and sends him to the same prison where he himself was kept
The film takes place over several months, and Bane holds the city of Gotham hostage with a nuclear bomb.
Bane is carrying out the vengeance of Ra's and the League of Shadows on Gotham
Although the world believes that Batman sacrifices himself, Bruce actually lives on and falls in love with Selina
Alfred does not die
There is a Bat-cave as well as a Bat-Bunker
Gordon discovers the threat of Bane, and is brutally savaged by Bane
