The Dark Knight Rises News: League of Shadows' Leader, Scarecrow Rumor and Possible Plot Synopsis - SPOILERS
|Warner Bros. / DC|
The Dark Knight Rises will be in theaters in less than a month and information is starting to ooze out from all directions about writer/ director Christopher Nolan's final chapter of his Batman trilogy. Let's recap some recent stuff for you right now. Stop reading if you don't want SPOILERS that are ahead.
Scarecrow to make some kind of cameo
In a press release for a European premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, it lists the cast including Cillian Murphy to attend the screening, who was one of the main villains in Batman Begins and also made a cameo in The Dark Knight too.
Does this mean he will have another cameo in the new film? Most likely since it wouldn't make sense for him to show up for a premiere if he wasn't in the movie at all.
Here at SuperHero Authority we have our theory about why Scarecrow will only have a cameo and we'll get to that in the next section.
The League of Shadows has a new leader
It's not Bane. That's right The League of Shadows, which Bruce Wayne was once a part of in Batman Begins, is back and has a new leader but not who you'd think. It's Ra's Al Ghul's daughter, Talia, rumor to also being played by actress Marion Cotillard ('Mal' from Inception), even though she is listed as playing the character named Miranda Tate, via IMDb. Double-agent perhaps?
Seems Talia has taken over and is working with Bane and his army of goons. Seeing as how The League of Shadows is back, it makes sense to have a cameo from Scarecrow since he was working with them in the first movie. That's our guess at least.
Possibly plot synopsis
Per ComicBookMovie.com: "In this third installment of the latest Batman franchise, a new threat arises in Gotham in the form of Bane, a nearly indestructible new enemy, who joins forces with Talia Al‘Ghul, the deadly new leader of the League of Shadows (a group Batman barely defeated in the first film); and who also happens to be the daughter of the martial arts master who originally trained Bruce Wayne. Further complicating matters, Batman must join forces with an untrustworthy new ally, in the form of Catwoman, if he is to have any chance at saving Gotham from this powerfully dangerous combined new threat."
Sounds like our opinion was right when we (here at SHA) suggested Batman and Catwoman will work together against Bane—and now The League of Shadows too.
