Will ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ feature the Bat-coptor?

A Twitter post from a professional sound operator, supposedly working on The Dark Knight Rises ,reports that the caped crusader may finally take to the skies in Christopher Nolan’s epic conclusion to his Batman series. Whether this is official or not cannot be determined so take it with a grain of salt.

The Dark Knight Rises’: Inside Info, they are Building 2 Attack Helicopters in the same design as the Bat Mobile from The Dark Knight! BOOM


Christopher Nolan has been known to pull inspiration from a few of Frank Miller’s Batman comics, so this does not sound too surprising since Batman gets himself a military helicopter in The Dark Knight Returns. With a budget of over $200 million we can expect all the stops to be pulled and I cannot wait to see what comes of it. If they just happen to feature Batman riding in on a black horse (image below from the same comic) this will officially be the best Batman film ever. The Dark Knight Rises is set for a July 20th 2012 release.

Fernando Caire is a cosplayer, an artist, an aspiring Video editor, a prop builder, a writer, and a cinephile, with a PHD in awesome. He loves cinema, both good and bad. You will catch him once a month with a group of like minded masochists who endure 8 hours of the worst movies in cinematic history...for fun. He loves video games (shows off his "team Ps3" shirt) and loves writing about them when he gets the chance (though the only ones he ever received for review have been bad). The San Diego Comic Con is what he considers to be his once a year vacation. You will find him in line for Hall H bright and early and if you are between him and any kind of free swag...God help you.
