Hi, first of all, let me say that I'm primarily a lurker and rarely ever create threads. If this topic is unnecessary or is already a subject in another thread, I apologize, and a moderator can lock it. My question regards who the "true" villain of this movie is. I've seen a lot of debates throughout the Internet, and I want to make sure I've read this movie the right way, since I've only seen it once so far. Spoiler I see a lot of people refer to Talia as the mastermind behind the whole plot, with Bane as her lackey/henchman, but I didn't think of Talia as the main villain. I thought Bane and Talia were both equally the main villains, and neither was taking orders from the other. They were partners in crime, if you will, and they both executed equal parts of the master plan (Talia orchestrated getting the bomb in Wayne Enterprises, while simultaneously weakening Bruce Wayne's defenses, and Bane organized the mercenaries and planned out the scheme, also while breaking Bruce Wayne physically). Was I wrong in assuming this? Feel free to discuss, and again, sorry if this thread is redundant.
