News: The Dark Knight Rises Flying Vehicle Named And Spoilers *WARNING*

So, last night I dreamt my friend, @BunchOfSteve, and I were invited to see the première of The Dark Knight Rises. No, true story. I’m not making this up for an interesting intro. I would never do that. Anyway, we were watching the film and it was AWFUL. I mean, George Lucas could have done better. Turned out Chris Nolan had made the film deliberately dreadful as part of an elaborate practical joke… and then I woke up. What’s this got to do with anything? Well, not a lot, but we may have a name for Batman’s new flying vehicle and some fairly big spoilers too.

Firstly, what is this thing gonna be called? We’ve all been happy calling it the Batwing, happy in the tradition that all Batman’s flying vehicles have been called that (probably). As we know, though, Nolan isn’t one for tradition. His Batmobile was called The Tumbler, his Batcycle the Batpod. What has his Chrisiness settled on for the big black flying thing of doom pictured up there? According to a leaked tie-in toy, it’s simply called The Bat. I like it. To the point. And I bet it finally gives Morgan Freeman’s Lucius Fox a chance to say the ‘B-word’. Expect to be rolling in the aisles when he finally says it.

*WARNING*

OKAY, NOW HERE COME THE SPOILERS.

NO FOOLIES, IF YOU WANT TO REMAIN SPOILER-FREE FOR THE FILM, STOP READING NOW. 

THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE. CLICK AWAY NOW.

*WARNING*

We all know by now that Marion Cottilard has been cast in the film as Miranda Tate, but there’s  been a swirling of rumours for many many months as to whether that was cover for who she was really playing. Things got a little clearer this week when little Joey King revealed that she was playing a young Talia Al Ghul. Could this be the confirmation we need that Marion is playing the Batman Begins villain Ra’s Al Ghul’s daughter? I say YES.

And speaking of Ra’s Al Ghul, Liam Neeson revealed that he had been on set during the filming of The Dark Knight Rises! Here’s what he had to say – “”I can tell you nothing about Dark Knight Rises, seriously. I was on set for maybe an hour-and-a-half and the director didn’t tell me anything of what it’s about. So, I’m being very honest when I say I have no idea what’s going to happen.” I think you can put a big giant tick next to the Ra’s Al Ghul appearing in The Dark Knight Rises box, even if it is in a brief flashback sequence. Sweet.
