Why we need 'The Dark Knight Rises' right now
10. Is it just us, or does everyone have a Tumbler and a Bat-cycle in this movie?
One of the most puzzling elements of the trailers for "The Dark Knight Returns" is the way it looks like there are more Tumblers out there on the streets, and possibly even under the control of Bane and his anti-Gotham mobs. Where did those come from? And why is Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) running around on the Bat-pod and stealing Batman's car? Wouldn't you expect Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox to install some sort of security system on the gear? It makes me think there are some elaborate corporate gymnastics involved in getting Tumblers out of Wayne Enterprises, and if someone has these and knows where they came from, my guess is that person also knows about Bruce and his secret identity. It raises some provocative questions about what's going on in the film, and it reinforces the idea that we know next to nothing about the actual story of film so far.
