If you’ve been following our coverage for The Dark Knight Rises, the final film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, you’ve noticed that we’re getting just a bit obsessive about the mysterious new film.  So it should come as no surprise that we’re geeking out about a recently leaked plot summary for The Dark Knight Rises, courtesy of FilmCells Ltd., an official licensee of Warner Bros. film products.  And so, it goes without saying, spoilers after the jump.

First off, the leaked plot summary isn’t the most revelatory to anyone who has paid attention to the first full trailer for the film, featuring as it does clips of a mysterious Catwoman, a vengeful and destructive Bane, and some discussion about an absent Batman.  The leaked plot summary is more of a confirmation of what has already been suspect by many fans:

When Commissioner Gordon stumbles upon a plot to destroy the city from within, Bruce Wayne gets back into action as the Batman. Waiting for him is the mysterious Selina Kyle and Bane, a lethal adversary on a crusade to tear apart Batmans legacy piece by piece.

The information was found on a product page for a “limited edition plaque [that] contains pieces of film and images from The Dark Knight Rises” on the FilmCells Ltd. website.  Again, it’s not a shocking reveal, but it is a confirmation of some suspected plot lines, though the line about Gordon discovering a plot to destroy Gotham “from within” does raise an eyebrow or two.

Well, only four months to go.  The Dark Knight Rises is set for a July 20th release.

What do you think of the plot details?
