Massive Dark Knight Rises spoiler found in set video

Do not click on this news story!

 
We’ve been back and forth with our readers on whether we should post Dark Knight Rises spoiler stories.
 
Some of you hate them, but at lot of you seem to enjoy them. 
 
So, this one’s for those of you who enjoy reading every single detail about the most exciting upcoming film of our generation.
 
The rest of you, look away now. We’ve warned you in the headline, we’ve warned you in the strapline, and now we’re warning you again. Stop reading. Stop it.
 
Seriously. This is your absolute last chance. From this point on, everything you read will upset you. Gone? Good. 
 
The below footage shows Bruce Wayne arriving at a party, and having significant trouble getting from his sports car to the venue. He’s hobbling, and appears to need a cane to walk.
 
Added to the set pictures we’ve already seen of Bane breaking Gotham’s goons from prison, and it’s starting to add up to one thing: elements of the Knightfall plot which sees Bane breaking Batman’s back WILL appear in The Dark Knight Rises.
 
In Knightfall, Bane frees the inmates of Arkham Asylum, to weaken Batman by forcing him to face all of his foes at once. 
 
After facing his most famous enemies – including Joker, Scarecrow, Two-Face and Victor Zsasz, who have all appeared in Nolan’s Bat-verse – Batman returns to Wayne Manor a broken man. 
 
Which is where Bane strikes, fighting Batman and breaking his back in the Batcave. 
 
Obviously elements have changed – in Knightfall, Bruce is left paralysed by Bane, and is forced to name a successor; the set pictures we’ve seen suggest Rises features a prison break, not an asylum break – but enough elements are there to suggest we’ll see that iconic image of Bane breaking Batman over his right knee.  
 
The video is below, have a look and let us know if you're excited about the possibilities.

      I loved the story you are referring to and I would love to have this form the final part of Nolan's trilogy (I just with the git who borrowed my graphic novel would remind me who he is so I can get it back). It is the kind of story that will fit in well with Nolan's universe - if slightly adapted and changed - and would make for a perfect send off for Bale as the Bat.

      Bearing in mind that Batman/Bruce was shot at the end of TDK. maybe this is a continuation of this?
