Re: Am I the only one that feels like TDKR prevents Nolan's trilogy from being perfec
I have the feeling that Bane's revolution was originally meant to be genuine but they also wanted to do all these other things like the bomb which made his motives a little more unclear. I love the movie but I think Bane having his own agenda that got him kicked out of the League and brought him to rule the corrupt Gotham with brute force would have been really interesting. Even have the bomb to keep the rest of the U.S. from interfering.
I took Bane's motive to be what he said to Bruce in the fight, fulfilling Ra's goal. There's nothing to contradict that motive, only complicate it. He seems to have affection for Talia, my guess is they reunited after Ra's died. I would assume she offered him a role in the new League where he could prove himself worthy to Ra's in his own way.
