    That would make a very surprising twist though. In the end Bats is completely broken or dead so Nightwings dons the cape and cowl and becomes the new Batman. Then Supes flies down while Bats is perched on a gargoyle and asks him if he is interested in joining the Justice League.

    At best I could see it end with Bruce talking to a young man about carrying on his legacy. Toss in a couple "wink/wink" moments to this young man being nicknamed Robin or Nightwing and you have a nice little Easter egg for fanboys to end the franchise with.

    Supes inviting Batman to join the Justice League? Bruce handing down his legacy? LOL.

    You guys are aware that these films aren't directed by Joel Schumacher anymore right?

    What's outlandish about the film ending with Bruce deciding to mentor a young man to carry on his work?

    This is what I understood from the trailer. Bane takes bruce out of the game, then he "resurfaces" and they go at it for the last battle.

    I'm fairly certain that the movie will follow many of the themes of the comic arc Knightfall. We have already seen in the trailer that Bane breaks open the prison and lets everyone out. Batman will probably get worn down having to help capture many of these fugitives, making it easier for Bane to take him out. I doubt he will actually break the guys back, but messing him up royally will be close enough.

    This is how I'm seeing it to. I don't see him breaking his back, I see him breaking him mentally and physically wearing him down.

    Trailer shows bruce walking with a cane at some point so we do know he gets injured at least.

    It looks like Bane hurt him early in the film or it might just be due to the fall he suffered on the final scene in TDK. Some say the movie is supposed to take place 8 years after TDK so it might be Bane that caused the injury if true.

    It's been interesting how little they have shown of Talia in the film or even talked about her. I'm wondering if they are keeping most of the connection to her and the Demon's Head in the film a secret like they did Two Face in TDK. Could be a larger role then we suspect.

    The only time they refer to her in articles is that she's one of Wayne Enterprises board members. They are definitely keeping her true identity a secret. It'll be interesting to see what transpires to make her reveal who she really is.

    Sucks for Nolan that the leaked set photos pretty much spoil Cotillards character.
