Some Dark Knight Rises Spoiler Speculation Confirmed

Whenever the first trailer for a big tentpole picture comes along, some nerd or another will spend an awfully long time going through it with a fine tooth comb, looking for clues. It really didn’t take much combing to find one such “hint” in the first promo for The Dark Knight Rises, but it’s still nice to have its meaning confirmed.

Here’s a shot from the first Rises trailer.

And a shot from Batman Begins.

It seemed obvious that Selina Kyle is wearing Martha Wayne’s pearl necklace. And so she is.

Harper Collins are publishing a kids’ book tie-in to the film called Batman versus Catwoman, and they’ve revealed this official blurb:

There’s a ferocious feline in town, and she’s out to steal from Gotham’s wealthy citizens. Unfortunately, Catwoman makes a mistake when she visits venerable citizen Bruce Wayne and takes Bruce’s prized family heirloom. She thinks she made a clean escape . . . but she doesn’t know who she toyed with!

Incdientally, the blurb for their other spin-off, I Am Bane, reads thus:

Bane is a super-villain with a bad attitude. When he decides to take over the Gotham City Stock Exchange, the city’s in big trouble! Can Batman get there in time to save the day?

The books are published on June 5th, meaning that slightly more info about these particular episodes in the movie’s plot will be coming along shortly.
