Trivia

In 2019, Christian Bale revealed that sometime after the third film was released, Warner Bros approached him to make a fourth film. Although he said he would be delighted, he would only accept if Christopher Nolan was involved as director. Obviously Nolan rejected the offer and the project wasn't continued. See more »

Epic
2 June 2013 | by CaptKeshavSee all my reviews

The Dark Knight Rises was a perfect sequel to a masterpiece. Christopher Nolan took a different direction and focused more on Bruce Wayne/Batman. This movie is filled with lots of emotions. It has such great characters and of course the dialogs is so good. The performances are incredible. It was my most anticipated movie of the century. The more I watch it, The more epic it gets. Personally, I think The Dark Knight Trilogy is the greatest Trilogy of all time and this movie gives the greatest ending of all time in the movie history. I remember seeing it thrice and the more I watched It the more respect it earns. Thank you Christopher Nolan, You Sir Are A Master.
