Many of you have already picked up on the subtle, or maybe not so subtle wording in the latest issue of Empire Magazine where David Goyer hints that Batman may die in The Dark Knight Rises.

“The final scene of The Dark Knight Rises is exactly that scene we talked about then,” says Goyer, speaking to Empire from his LA office almost four years later. “It remained completely unchanged. We both knew in our hearts that we were onto something special. I have to tell you, having finally seen everything strung together a little while ago and seeing that scene, I got a complete lump in my throat.”

The MS-QotD wants you to step up with an answer:  Is this carefully worded statement simply stunt marketing to get audiences into theaters on opening weekend, or is there someone waiting in the wings to rise when the Dark Knight falls?

    For some reason, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character seems to be a lot more prominent in the trailer than it should and a couple of shots seem rather telling… It wouldn’t surprise me in the least to see Bruce Wayne die only for The Dark Knight to Rise…

      That’s exactly what I was going to suggest.

    they’re killing Jean Grey, that way it’ll feel like a trilogy.

    Frank Miller would be so proud. Tell me… do they have Clark Kent at the end to listen for a heart-beat before we cut to Bruce back in that Bat-Cave?

    I am just so not into this movie at all.
