I received the following email last night from Lt. Jim Gordon of the Gotham City Police Department. With the events spiraling out of last week’s hostage situation involving Harvey Dent, there is a lot of back story viewers of The Dark Knight might need to know to fully appreciate the upcoming flick.
Indictments are about to be handed down. If you don’t want your name on one, we’ll need your full cooperation in an upcoming operation.
In case you haven’t heard, we are struggling with a bit of corruption in the department. I’m not about to let the Gotham PD collapse in on itself, so we’re taking action. We’ve identified a group of offenders that need to be apprehended. Problem is, most of these cops are hightailing it out of the city. But a C.I. just like you just gave us some information on their last known whereabouts. Now all we need is to catch them. This is where you come in.
Consider yourself on deck. I’ll contact you next week, and letâ€™s just say it’s in your best interest to play along. County’s not a place you want to spend the rest of your life.
Lt. Jim Gordon, MCU
The more viral marketing that comes out from Warner Bros., the more excited I am about this movie.
