“The Shadows betray you, because they belong to me!”, by Ridureyu
In everything with Batman ever, we are used to Bruce saying, “I am vengeance, I am the night! I… am… Batman!”
And then in The Dark Knight Rises, somebody else gets to say it. Bane, initiated into the League of Shadows, has this to say:
“You think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding! The shadows betray you, because they belong to me!”
The Dark Knight Rises is the only movie of the trilogy with a final battle in the daytime – at dawn, in fact. Batman is no longer the “Dark Knight.” He now represents the hope of a new dawn.
