    Trailer looks interesting, you can see wayne with a broken back and the batcave being invaded.

    Going out on a limb and saying Batman dies in the film.

    i doubt they kill off a money making franchise. btw there is a famous batman comic where someone breaks his back. i'm blanking on the name of the villian. I'm too old i guess.

    If Nolan wants this to be his last, it wouldn't surprise me.

    Im thinking it goes the way of the comics. Batman gets back broken by bane and trains a replacement. Ras al ghoul? Something like that

    Bane breaks Batman's back at the first of the movie. 7 years goes by and the movie picks up there.

    Ra's al Ghul is the person who trained Batman in the first Nolan Batman movie.

    Replacement ends up not working out, and Batman comes out of retirement.

    I said Batman dies, not wayne, huge difference.

    It is Bane in the comic who breaks Batmans back. This was a possible movie plot after Clooneys bastardization of batman. Eastwood was approached to play Batman.

    Also, back to the trailer, the tumblers are not under control of Batman.

    I thought this was intended to be a trilogy the entire time?

    It says in the trailer it's the conclusion.

    I don't think he breaks his back, but I do expect Batman to die taking out Bane.

    Bane is involved in this film, right?

    As far as it being a trilogy I imagine that refers to Nolan's involvement. Seems to me there's too much money in Batman for him to die, but even if he does, reboot.

    My best guess is that Bane's goal is to implode the city given the scene with the football stadium and the skyscrapers.

    Bane's deal has always been very personal with Batman. It'll be interesting to see what other villain is involved.

    Looks like Wayne can be seen walking around with a cane in several scenes. I too believe his back will be broken early in the film.

    Possible that he breaks Wayne's back and not Batman's per se?

    Who played Al Ghul in the first movie? Liam Neeson? So you all are expecting Wayne to be taken to his healing pit? Wasn't he killed in the first movie of the trilogy?

    Interrogation over.

    In other adaptations he knows Batman = Bruce Wayne
