Excerpt: But everything is about to change. A violent revolutionary named Bane (Tom Hardy) has targeted Gotham with an elaborate, horrible plan that goes beyond even what Ra’s Al Ghul attempted in Batman Begins.

Excerpt: As The Dark Knight Rises brings a close to Christopher Nolan’s staggeringly ambitious Batman trilogy, it’s worth remembering that director chose The Scarecrow as his first villain—not necessarily the most popular among the comic’s gallery of rogues, but the one who set the tone for entire series.
