The Dark Knight Rises is getting ready to go before the lens, and Christopher Nolan is keeping everything as hush-hush as possible in regards to the storyline. While we can’t completely rule out that Hush won’t appear, the Intardwebz is firmly behind Doctor Hugo Strange and the Doug Moench Legends of the Dark Knight: Prey storyline as the inspiration for the movie. As the anticipation for the film grows, what better time to examine the story arc than now?
With all the talk circulating around Doctor Hugo Strange as the big bad in the third Christopher Nolan Batman film, and the recent reveal that Dr. Strange is the heavy in the Batman: Arkham City trailer, it seems pretty clear that the psychologist is going to get a fair amount of attention in the coming years. The rumor has Nolan basing his Dark Knight Rises on the 1990 Prey storyline from Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, so what better time to examine the arc than now? And what better way to check the availability of the series than by diving in back issue bin at my local Hastings.
This trailer for Batman: Arkham City is so full of awesome, it wouldn’t surprise me if elements of this game weren’t already influencing the third Christopher Nolan Batman film (or vice versa considering Hugo Strange’s appearance).
