Lately there’s been quite a lot of information flying around the internet about The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s third (and seemingly final) Batman movie. Very little news has actually been officially confirmed as of yet, but rumors of all sorts have been making the rounds, so of them stranger than others. Being a huge fan of the Nolan Batman movies (and Nolan movies in general, for that matter), I took it upon myself to do a little research on the film and see what I could find. Anyway, my goal here is to attempt to sort through as much information as I can, hopefully separating fact from rumor as I go (which is easier said than done, I might add).
Next stop – new characters and cast members! This part is pretty tricky though, as it combines casting rumors with confirmed roles, so try to bear with me.
And now it’s time for miscellaneous cast members, because I’m too lazy to give everyone their own paragraph. Josh Pence will be playing a younger version Ra’s al Ghul, so I guess we can expect some flashbacks. He does kind of look like a young Liam Neeson, so I guess I understand why he was cast. According to a tweet from Variety's Jeff Sneider, "supporting roles" are also being filled by Daniel Sunjata, Diego Klattenhoff, and Burn Gorman (from Torchwood, yay!). Apparently you must have a silly name to be part of The Dark Knight Rises’ supporting cast.
