Today, 20th July’16, marks the 4th anniversary of ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’
What Nolan siblings have accomplished through ‘Batman’ trilogy is phenomenal and unprecedented. The siblings transformed the inherent characteristics and dynamics of ‘Batman’ franchise.
Until, Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan were entrusted by the studio, Warner Bros for renaissance of ‘Batman’, the characterization was frivolous. It does not necessarily mean that, the Pre – Nolan directed films were inferior. But, they catered to an exclusive segment.
Nolan siblings created a universe for Batman, and went to the origins of the characters. Thus, the characters became more organic, intense and purposeful. The trilogy itself was an evolution. Reportedly, even people who were not fond of comic characters, enthusiastically watched the series, beginning from ‘Batman Begins’ (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), and concluding installment ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (2012) multiple times.
The making of ‘ Batman Begins’ is a tribute to the fourth anniversary of ‘ The Dark Knight Rises.’
