And finally a very detailed text: Batman-The Dark Knight Rises The Dark Knight Rises is an upcoming superhero film directed by Christophe Nolan, who co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Jonathan Nolan and the story with David S. Goyer. The film is based on the DC Comics character Batman and it is the third part of Nolan´s film series. It is a sequel to Batman Begins (2005) and the Dark Knight (2008). The Dark Knight Rises is the end of the series. The film takes place eight years after the events of The Dark Knight. The plot The new film reveals a lot of Bruce Waynes childhood and personalitiy. He has to fight against two evils: Bain and his partner Selina Kyle. Bain always wears a mask with gas to reduce his pains from an old injury. He is very brutal and hates the whole world. There are no more informations about the plot. Nolan likes to make a great mystery about his films. Actors Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman reprise their roles from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. There are two new characters in this film: Anne Hatheway plays Selina Kyle and Tom Hardy plays Bain. The ideas of the film The film has inspirations in the Batman comic book series Knightfall(1993), which deputed the villain Bain; The Dark Knight Returns(1986), in which Batman returns to Gotham-City after a ten-

year absence; and No Man´s Land(1999), which depicts Gotham being overrun by gangs. Filming The filming took place in very interesting locations like India, London, Glasgow, Pittsburgh and Romania for old-looking city-views.
