Um, Trump Quoted Bane From The Dark Knight Rises During the Inauguration

13 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

pic.twitter.com/dYECwneW1R - Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) January 20, 2017 President Donald Trump (yes, it's official) appeared before the country during his inauguration ceremony on Friday, and either his speech writers are giggling among themselves or someone is in trouble. During his address to the nation, Trump used the phrase "and giving it back to you, the people." Though it's not an exact match, it bears a striking resemblance to a portion of Bane's speech from The Dark Knight Rises, in which he says, "and we give it back to you, the people." Honestly, it's really the way that both say it that's so eerie. Deadspin editor Timothy Burke was the first to call out the coincidence, tweeting out a quick video comparing the two moments. Here's Bane's speech in full - quote begins around 2:05. And here's Trump's full speech - strangely, the quote also begins around 2:05. Not a great start. »

Did Donald Trump’s Inaugural Speech Echo ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Villain Bane? (Video)

14 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Earlier Friday, Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States of America. During his speech in Washington D.C., some very perceptive and clever fanboys on social media noticed that the President quoted a comic book villain best known to DC Comics fans as the man who broke the Batman’s back – Bane. pic.twitter.com/dYECwneW1R — Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) January 20, 2017 The President quoted a line from Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” and promised to give America back to the people, saying “Today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to »

Donald Trump Quotes Batman Villain During Inauguration Speech

16 hours ago | ET Canada | See recent ET Canada news »

Donald Trump is making promises that sound awfully familiar to movie fans. Vowing to give power “back to you, the people,” during his inauguration speech, Trump — presumably unintentionally — dropped a Bane reference from “The Dark Knight Rises”. “Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from […] »

Trump Quotes Bane from Dark Knight Rises in Inauguration Speech?

16 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Today is a big day, not just in Washington D.C., or even the United States, but all over the world as humanity hangs in the balance upon Donald Trump becoming sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Yes, today is Inauguration Day! And it seems that Donald Trump is playing up his role as villain in some eyes. A new side-by-side comparison video has emerged that shows Trump just stole part of his big White House speech from none other than DC Comics super villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.

The fine folks at UpRoxx were the first to make note of this seeming bit of plagiarism. You can see the video pieced together below. And it makes a good case for Trump taking on the role of Bane in the real-life, non-comic book universe we all currently inhabit. Here is Donald Trump's speech. »

Donald Trump Paraphrases Bane Quote From ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in Inauguration Speech – Watch

17 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on January 20, and upon addressing the public during his inauguration speech, vowed to give the power back to the people. In what should have been an inspirational and hopeful address, many on social media couldn’t help but notice that some of what he was saying sounded familiar.

“Today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people,” Trump said.

Did Donald Trump Accidentally Quote Bane During Inauguration Speech?

17 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on ew.com.

A line in Donald Trump‘s inauguration speech perfectly echoed a Batman supervillain.

The 45th U.S. president pledged that power is now being given “back to you, the people” during his inauguration speech on Friday.

“Today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people,” Trump said.

President Donald Trump Seemingly Plagiarized The Dark Knight Rises' Bane In His Inaugural Speech

17 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Back in 2012, Donald Trump called The Dark Knight Rises "really terrific." He particularly loved the cinematography, but was he also a big fan of Bane? Played by Tom Hardy, one of the villain's most memorable moments came when he delivered a terrifying speech to the oppressed people of Gotham City, and if the video below is any indication, Trump may well have been inspired by Batman's nemesis. Also below is a comparison of part of the new President's inaugural address compared to the one delivered by Bane, and they definitely share some pretty major similarities, don't you guys think?  Donald Trump: "Today’s ceremony, however has very special meaning. Because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another. But we are transferring power from Washington D.C. and giving it back to you... the people. For too long a »

Inauguration Review: Donald Trump Attacks Past Presidents in Divisive Address No One Needed to See

17 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Much has been made about the connection between Donald Trump and his obsession with ratings, leading many concerned citizens to call for audiences to boycott watching his inauguration. After all, he may not have been able to see the stark drop in attendance outside the U.S. Capital building, but we know he can read a ratings sheet.

In the end, those who didn’t tune in — for whatever reason — made the right choice. What President Donald Trump said during his first presentation as president was meant for his supporters, and even they likely wondered if what they were watching was a campaign speech instead of an inaugural address.

Newswire: Donald Trump’s inauguration speech evokes fellow man of the people Bane

17 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

We always sort of pegged Barron Trump as the future Batman villain of the family, but apparently Donald Trump is also trying to taunt Bruce Wayne into revealing himself. In his unsettlingly pugilistic inauguration speech earlier today, Trump said: “Today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.”

Compare that to Bane’s big speech on the steps of Blackgate Prison in The Dark Knight Rises, where he says: “We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity. And we give it to you, the people.” You can compare the two statements below.

Donald Trump's Inauguration Speech Borrows Line from Batman Villain Bane

18 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A small part of President Donald Trump's inaugural address may have sounded familiar to those who remember 2012's The Dark Knight Rises.

As a side-by-side comparison by Deadspin's Timothy Burke points out, part of the new President's populist message was similar to what Bane told the people of Gotham after taking control of their city.

Here's a part of what Trump told the Washington D.C. crowd: "Today's ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are »

Tdkr's Anne Hathaway Controls A Giant Monster In The First Trailer For Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal

19 January 2017 2:29 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial) is back with another potentially brilliant oddity, which features The Dark Knight Rises' Anne Hathaway, and a bloody Kaiju. The movie is called Colossal, and it's about a despondent woman named Gloria (Hathaway) who somehow conjures and then psychically controls a giant monster that begins laying waste to Seoul. In order to prevent further destruction, Gloria needs to determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world. The film premiered at Cannes last year to a generally favorable response, and based on the trailer below, it does certainly look... interesting, anyway.  Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is a hard partying New York scene girl who is thrust into crisis when her boyfriend, Tim (Dan Stevens), grows sick of her antics and kicks her out of their apartment. With no other options, she moves back to her hometown and quickly regresses, »

How to Identify the Four 'Peak Tom Hardy' Types

He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company. »
