well, it seems that Christopher Nolan is having a touch of fun by hiding one or two things in the trailer for the, to put it mildly, hugely anticipated film The Dark Knight Rises
. i would guess they are there to get fans "talking" and speculating, so let us oblige him!
first up and a look at the crowd in the hugely anticipated "stadium scene".
do you see it? no? look again. still don't see it? here's a close up.
yes, that's the familiar logo of Robin! the extra who made this sign has owned up that he "did it for fun", but Mr Nolan exacts such strict control over his films he must have been aware of it and decided to leave it in.
and thus this must have been quite deliberate.....
hmn. Dick Grayson was always described as "Bruce Wayne's ward", and of course in the celebrated 60s TV series Robin was played by one Burt Ward.
it is, however, unlikely that any of this means Robin shall turn up in the film. Christian Bale said that "you will know if Robin is in it because i will not be", which seems to be a pretty conclusive denial.
there's been an incredible, if not astonishing, build up of hatred for Robin over the last decade or so, really. i am pretty sure it started out around the time he was introduced to the last series of Batman films, the dislike and hatred stemming from that horrid actor Chris O'Donnell giving his standard horrible, almost unbearable style of performance in the part.
no doubt there are more things "hidden away" in the trailer, if i spot them i shall share them!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
