    According to a News Report from ONN, which you can read here.

    At first I was angry with Nolan, but when he said "I mean, it's Batman, for God's sake, not Richard III. We should just go goofy with it. And so we did," it all made sense. And you know what? I trust Nolan no matter what and I know that even if it doesn't sound quite right to me, in Nolan's hands it will be genius.

    Trust Nolan. :up:

    I wish Nolan did say most of those things in that article, it's a damn shame how some fans hate "camp"...or fun for that matter.

    It's about time Nolan dropped the whole serious act.

    I love the Onion, but their best bit on The Dark Knight Rises was the short skit they had on the Week in Review titled "Movie Fans demand to see Heath Ledger reprise role as The Joker in The Dark Knight Rises."

    "Referring to their impossible demands they simply responded that they didn't want to get into a whole existential debate about who's alive or dead, they just want to see it done.""

    The three trailers including the teaser have a darker tone than the whole past movies. I don't see that hapenning

    I'd like to see the look on Christian Bale's face as he read that script.

    He and Nolan would be done professionally.
