Gary Oldman Says ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Brings The Story Back To ‘Batman Begins’

When it comes to “The Dark Knight Rises,” it’s always difficult to get any details about the project from its cast and creative team, but that doesn’t mean we’re not trying.

The latest focal point of our efforts was “Red Riding Hood” actor Gary Oldman, who will likely reprise his role as Jim Gordon in the third and possibly final installment of Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” movie franchise.

“I haven’t seen the script yet,” Oldman told MTV News. “I know the story and it’s a great story. You look at ’The Dark Knight’ and you go, ’How’s he going to top it?’ But I think he has.”

While he couldn’t reveal any details about the aforementioned story (of course), he did offer a tease of sorts by hinting that “The Dark Knight Rises” returns Nolan’s Batman arc to where it began.

“The scope of it and also the way he brings it back to ’Batman Begins,’ and really what Bruce Wayne discovers about himself, what he learns about himself at the end of this one [will top off the trilogy],” he said.

As for the role his character, Jim Gordon, will play in the film, Oldman said only that he’s “heard it’s a good role.”

“But I’ll have to wait and see, won’t I?” he added.
