MAJOR ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Spoiler Leaked

If you want to keep your movie's storyline a secret, you probably shouldn't tell a 13-year-old. Rumor confirmed!

Seriously, you probably don't want to know this. Christopher Nolan certainly doesn't want you to know, and if you're a big enough fan to click on an article with the words "MAJOR SPOILER" in the title, you probably trust that the man who brought you Batman Begins and The Dark Knight knows what he's doing. It's okay. We can forgive you. Christopher Nolan can forgive you. You can forgive yourself… if you click away right now. Otherwise, well, you've been warned…

Seriously? You're still here? My god, you must be desperate. Don't say we didn't try to stop you, since the makers of the movie you obviously want to see planned to keep this a total secret.

There appears to have been a break in the code of silence surrounding The Dark Knight Rises, stemming from 13-year-old co-star Joey King, who revealed the nature of her part in an interview with My Entertainment World, as reported by Total Film. She mentions that she's been sworn to secrecy, stating, "I can't give too much away because I promised Mr. Nolan I wouldn't say anything." Unfortunately, she must not have realized that one, seemingly innocuous thing she did say means an awful lot to anyone familiar with the Batman mythos. Frankly, we're surprised that anyone even reported it, since she probably didn't know what a big deal it was, and clearly stated that she was sworn to secrecy. It seems unfair to take advantage of a young person that way, but the information's already out there and it's too late to take it back now. We hope everyone at Warner Bros. is being kind about it, because what she said was…

Are you sure…?


She's playing a young Talia al Ghul.

There. You ruined the film. We hope you're happy with yourself. 

Well, maybe you didn't ruin the film. It's not like Talia al Ghul wasn't already heavily rumored to be in the movie anyway. We all suspected that's who Marion Cotillard was playing, after all. It's been a popular rumor for over a year now. But knowing for sure seems kind of lame. Don't be too hard on Joey, anybody. If you didn't know that Talia al Ghul is the daughter of Liam Neeson's villain from Batman Begins, as anyone dedicated enough to follow the rumors closely almost certainly does, you probably wouldn't think that her very name is an important plot point in-and-of itself. Unfortunately it is, and the fact that Christopher Nolan didn't mention that Talia al Ghul was in the movie earlier clearly means that it was intended as a twist. Geez, no wonder he's leaving the franchise.

CraveOnline will be back with more Dark Knight Rises news after Joseph Gordon-Levitt blurts out that he's really Clayface or something.
