Alright everyone, let the baseless, frenzied speculation begin! Gary Oldman recently revealed details (yet again!) concerning The Dark Knight Rises’ production script to Absolute Radio, which is going to set more than million or so fanboy hearts a-flutter. And it turns out that the big climax of the film, along with the villain, is…
…still unknown (don’t hate me, guys!). Turns out, security is so tight surrounding the script that you’d need a WikiLeaks-style crack squad to nab the film’s details and ending. According to /Film, Oldman, who plays Commissioner Gordon in Christopher Nolan’s soon-to-be-completed Batman trilogy, told Absolute Radio about the hoops he had to jump through to read the script:
“To get into the production office, you have to have someone meet you and there are keys and various doors that lock. The script you read in the production office, and there is no ending because [Nolan] tells you the ending so that it doesn’t leak and get out, and people spoil it on the internet.”
Oldman also notes that the film connects back to Batman Begins, the first entry in the trilogy: “He sort of brings it back… he brings it around.”
While all of these security measures may sound extreme, the frenzy surrounding the film—Who is the villain(s)?!?! Will Batman die/ retire/ carry on by the film’s end?!?! Will there be nipples on the Batsuit?!?!—pretty much ensures that the script is going to leak sooner or later, meaning that lopping off the ending may be the only way to prevent spoilers from slipping out (although, odds are we’ll figure out the villain soon enough).
