The Final Scene Of The Dark Knight Rises Was Actually The First One Written
Christopher Nolan’s 2012 film “The Dark Knight Rises” made some bold decisions for the movie and gave Batman what few superheroes get in this modern climate of extended cinematic universes: a conclusive, peaceful end to his journey. After supposedly sacrificing himself to save Gotham, Bruce Wayne is spotted by Alfred — and the audience — at a cafe in Paris.
“Rises” co-screenwriter David S. Goyer revealed that the film started with the idea of Batman retiring into anonymity, even before the inception of the villains, action set pieces, and plots. As this was to be Nolan’s final Batman film, Goyer knew that addressing the end of the character was vital and met the director at a diner in Los Angeles to work out the details.
Goyer explained, “The final scene of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is exactly that scene we talked about then. [...] 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.”
