- THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Batman trilogy writer David S. Goyer recently talked about the final scene of The Dark Knight Rises and the profound emotional effect it had on him.

Courtesy of Empire Magazine:
“The final scene of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is exactly [the] scene we talked about [when Christopher Nolan and I started the trilogy with 'Batman Begins']. It remained completely unchanged. We both knew in our hearts that we were onto something special. I have to tell you, having finally seen everything strung together a little while ago and seeing that scene, I got a complete lump in my throat.”
Now, you might assume Goyer got a lump in his throat because he was witnessing his nearly decade-long dream realized (or something similarly sentimental).
However, Empire pressed the issue further and got a different response. After they inferred that Nolan was committing “commercial sacrilege,” Goyer said:
“Yup! That’s why it’s ****ing exciting!”
Could this mean the death of Batman? Does Batman end up with his back broken and JGL taking on the mask? Could Alfred die? Could Lucius be killed? Will Gordon be killed? Will Lucius, Gordon and Alfred all die?
Well we will just have to wait and see what will unfold in TDKR.
The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th, 2012.
