I’ve been waiting for that movie since the Dark Knight and unforgettable Heath Ledger. I knew that Nolan and his team and specially his brother, who wrote the script, have a big shoes to fill in. I always had faith in Nolan even when he cast Ann Hathaway as a Cat Woman! Last Wednesday there was a European Premiere of Batman the Dark Knight Rises in London, at the famous Odeon cinema in Leicester Square. I work near by so I went to get the feel of the excitement. I was not disappointed with the buzz around the movie, the more committed fans were wearing Batman and Bane outfits and were waiting for the cast to sign their DVDs probably since early morning. I got a glimpse of all the main stars, including Tom Hardy, Morgan Freeman, Christopher Nolan and the Batman himself, Christian Bale accompanied by his wife Sibi.

I saw the movie a couple of days after the premiere and I must say it ticked all the boxes! I won’t go into details but I am very excited about how the film finished. Now I am hoping for the Batman & Robin movie, even though Nolan and Bale promised that it’s the end of the road for them in terms of Batman saga. I guess easy to figure out who should play Robin!? As I was watching Batman it was one of the two big shockers; that through the whole movie I’ve been following the development of Batman & Robin relationship. I didn’t notice it because Nolan dropped the circus, which is a hallmark of Robin’s life.
The biggest shock for me was the fact that the main villain was not actually Bane! The main story is about Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter, who is on a mission to finish what her father started in Batman Begins.
