Re: Is Batman going to become a fascist conservative in the Dark Knight Rises?
I found the film took an apolitical stance; there's plenty of it in the dialogue and scenes, but its simply put out there and used as it benefits the story. No preaching etc.
"..the mere intimation that there might be more to a heroic narrative than the heroes are the Good Guys, the villains are Bad Guys and the heroes should Win a rousing Victory appears to be in itself such an offensive contention that it arouses a kind of defensive knee-jerk hysteria just by surfacing." - Richard K Morgan
