If you're new, Subscribe! → /> Christopher Nolan's epic Batman series ended on a somewhat confusing note. Batman was essentially dead, Bruce Wayne retired in Italy, and all the villains met a slow, dramatic end. But every resolution seemed to bring yet another cliffhanger. So what exactly happened with the finale of The Dark Knight Rises? Here's an explanation of what really went down in the ending of Nolan's Batman series, and what it meant — and still could mean — for the future… Blast survivor | 0:26 The light knight rises | 1:41 Room for a sequel? | 2:30 Setting a tone | 3:47 The standalone series | 4:37 Read more here → /> Comic Book Movies /> Doctor Strange Easter Eggs You Didn't Notice /> The Real Reason Marvel Won't Give Hulk A Movie /> How Marvel Characters Should Really Look /> The Real Reason Amazing Spider-Man 3 Didn't Happen /> Dumb Things In Civil War That Everyone Just Ignored /> The Real Reason Marvel Won't Give Black Widow A Movie /> Website → />Like us → />Follow us → />Instagram → />Vine → /> Looper is the go-to source for the movies, TV shows and video games we all love.

Am I the only one that absolutely loved The Dark Knight Rises?
Took Looper 5 years to explain the ending of The Dark Knight Trilogy.
Mr Magnificent
Christian Bale is the best Batman ever.And Heath Ledger was the best Joker ever.Infact all the cast of TDK Trilogy is perfectly match with characters.Hit like if u agree
i still stand on the fact the dark knight was the best batman movie the best DC movie and has the best joker/ dc villain. I dont see another director today doing what nolan did for batman. He literally saved the name.
one of the best trilogy ever made
Sean-Luc Shanahan
Video explained in 1 sentence: Everything you thought about the series and its ending is absolutely correct and not confusing or ambiguous whatsoever.
A friend has always said this to me: "The dark knight either dies a trilogy, or lives long enough to become batman and robin." XD
Brett PGH
Don't forget what happens next. All of Gotham's criminals are still on the loose, and the new Batman has zero training. Batman spent years training with the League of Shadows and could barely keep Gotham safe. Blake is a cop and...well that's it. He might have access to Batman's toys, but he has no idea how any of it works. He's dead, week one.
5 years too late Looper
Krabby Patty
that franchise ended 5 years ago and now u make a video about the ending

Christian Bale is the only Batman in my eyes
Nate M.
Oh man! I so badly wished Nolan had continued this series. JGL as Robin fighting alongside Bale's Batman would have been so freaking cool!!
confusing? it wasn't confusing at all. it was a great ending
Marvel may be winning now but most of those movies I watch once and that's it, this trilogy I find myself watching a lot I literally watched the one with the joker two nights ago lol
zaim rozaan
Nolan, please.. Continue this trilogy
the dark knight trilogy will be the best dc movies and in general superhero movies ever in my opinion and no other superhero movie will get the same respect as the nolan trilogy
Jack Gran8
i litterly just watched the dark knight rises about 20 mins ago 😂😂
Yo Chris Nolan is such a crazy good filmmaker and he should make a Robin movie. Or Denis Villeneuve.
Sub Zero
The Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises are the two best comic book movies ever made. Nolan completely changed the game. Even Marvel fans (myself included) pay respect to this masterpiece of a trilogy.
Jonathan Hollingsworth
Joseph Gordon-Levitt for Red Hood in the DCEU
Christopher Nolan needs keep making dc movies
Vincent Maliga
I know Joseph's character most likely became the new Batman. But remember when Bruce said the point was Batman can be anybody. I believe he meant that metaphorically bc remember he also said he didn't want copy cats and that if John Blake were to fight crime he should wear a mask. I think John became his own hero and actually became something similar to Nightwing with the help of Lucius. Their relationship is probably exactly like Dick Graysons relationship to Lucius in the Arkham Knight DLC. And his approach to fighting criminals is head on instead of ninja like. I don't think he would use guns like Red Hood bc as soon as he kills someone with it he throws it away. He's a master Detective like Tim Drake. The villains he probably would have to face are Riddler, Black Mask, and Penguin. They should make a quick short comic book about his adventures since we obviously can't get a movie
Stormin' Norman
The DC Expanded Universe should just drop Snyder and Affleck, and bring Nolan and Bale back.
Does this trilogy need explanation? No. It's pretty straight forward if you just pay attention.

I'd love for Nolan to come back and do batman movies again
maybe joseph Gordon levitt should have played some sort of version of batman beyond
Haroon K. Wazeer
I saw the Dark knight rises more than 50 times😍😍😍
Yahir Lopez
My 2nd favorite movie trilogy next to Star Wars the OG trilogy
Batman beyond/Batman of the Future! Would make an amazing movie.
No super hero movie from DC or Marvel comes close to these films. Great trilogy.
you're a couple years late....
The Almighty god
love this trilogy becoze batman doesn't try to show him self as a superhero !! he's a guardian .... A SILENT GUARDIAN ...THE DARK KNIGHT
Cam Crawford
Not going to overlook that you totally never explained the ending at all...
Army of Blood
There are people who needed this explained?
Nikhil Rao
It would be so good if Nolan makes a sequel of the dark knight rises...😭😭😭😭... Nolan we beg you....
Pablo Cuadras
Perfect trilogy
your gonna need some real balls to try and add more to that trilogy
What's the point of this video, TDKR came out like 6 years ago, are there people who need clarification on the ending for some reason?
Joey Doe
why can't people just make a movie that tells it's own story instead of changing the entire story based on trying to intertwine other characters into it just to make a spinoff. that's why I live the dark Knight trilogy
Hossein Maz Sr.
And who can ever forget the legendary performances by the 3 actors, Tom, Heath and Bale..
3 is enough!
rishi kumar
its not batpod(batman's bike) its called the bat(it has some long, uninteresting Wayne Enterprises designation), whats wrong with this voice over guy, first it was joker's car from suicide squad (Vaydor) now on batman
Sidney Tucker
Batman Begins is good. The Dark Knight is the best one, and that's for the Joker and not Batman. The Dark Knight Rises is the worst.
Nolan's masterpiece- batman trilogy still remains connected with my soul from the day i watched last movie. Sometimes movies are made that brilliant nd if u watch nd realise this trilogy with full depth, i think batman movie is 1 of the best movies of the whole life
Why would I even need an explanation?

I dont want a sequel, some things are perfect, just who they are now
Troy Castles
well done Captain obvious
The Spongy Mallard
He's Batman, why do we need to explain anything?
king Nate
Anyone else miss Heath?
Be Fresh
but who uses their legal name as alter ego😁😁, they would die within couple of days of being hero. Bad guys will know their identity pronto.
Vishal Bhadhoriya
I Loved Christian Bale as Batman as Dark Knight Trilogy Ever....& Forever.....
Cervantes Miller
Why are we getting this like 3 years later 😂
Frank Houttave
There is only problem with the trilogy : The fact the Joker hasn't been mentioned once in the TDKR isn't logical, it's absurd.
Reed Birmingham
I really want a sequel for the dark knight
Christopher Nolan's version of batman ends perfectly, no more sequels are needed.
Alot of people like to use TDK trilogy as a pass for every fail that DC has had in the past. Green Lantern sucked, catwoman suckedd, Man of steel sucked.... BUT DARK KNIGHT MAKES UP FOR IT!!! not really. Im not gonna lie. TDK trilogy were the greatest batman movies ever. No one down the line will come close to what Nolan created because Batman is more grounded there then in the DCU. And what ever DC throws down the line with the next batman movie, we know what to expect but we shouldn't be dissapointed if its not The Dark Knight. In the end though, I can savely say that we will never get a sequel to TDK and that all we have to rely on is Batfleck... He is way better batman anyways because he actually kills the bad guys instead of throwing them in a stupid jail in which they can escape.
imperator maxim furiosa
so it took 5 years for guys in the looper to understand the ending😂😂
Eddie Canales-cortes
Who here thinks that Jospeh Gordon levett will make a decent Shazam
It would be crazy if they went the Injustice route.. or something like Batman(Ben) meets Batman(Bale) .. 2 universes that actually interact with each other on a movie type bases
OMG they killed Kenny!
you never knew what happened to the joker. He just got arrested. Or the scarecrow.
An Alien from outer space
Too bad he became an assassin and killed his time traveler self.
One of the best trilogy's Hollywood has ever produced. It's up there with Star Wars IV-VI and The Lord of the Rings I-III.
Rahul Mandal
Gotham is at its best in Batman Begins! Best Villain in The Dark Knight! Best story & Best ending of Trilogy in TDKR!

This video is 5 years too late...
Y.V-Young Vinny
Christian Bale is by far the best for Batman, in fact, The Dark Knight series and the cast were all amazing. Nowadays, movies are trying to recreate the great series which cannot be replaced..
blueberry smasher
Tom Hardy really killed it in his portrayal of Bane... as did Ledger as the Joker... great actors forever enshrined in DC Universe.
If anyone paid attention, you would know that John Blake (Joseph Levitt) is Robin.

Nooooooooooooooo oooooooooooo Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo 2 hours later oooooooooooo Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooo Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Christian Bale should return as the Batman he was the best
Batman Begins 9/10 The Dark Knight 11/10 The Dark Knight Rises 10/10
James Anthony
Actually, before the bomb blew up, Batman activated auto-pilot, so my guess is he jumped before the bomb went off
Andrew Agbay
He died, look at all the facts. Alfred said he had a FANTASY of seeing Bruce in Italy. Why would he sell everything he owned if Batman had died, not Bruce Wayne.
Sayantan Biswas
Wow. This video was completely and utterly pointless. You guys had literally nothing of your own to say
Baba Yaga
your 5 years late
Sjaak Purple
So It took them 5 years to realise...

baleman vs murderman I prefer baleman
The Batboy
I love the Batman nolanverse so much that I wish they made a small novel that takes place after rises.
Sayan Sadhukhan
Nolan should have take over dc!😒
I don't need the ending explained (it's pretty straightforward). I just hate it. lol
Yonatan Makara
I would love to see a batman beyond movie. They did a fan made one and it was good. If Clint Eastwood was bruce wayne older that be awsome.
Johnny Favorite
Why did Batman get his shit put out in the street by Bane at the the beginning, but when he returns at the end he's suddenly able to fight circles around Bane? Seemed like shitty writing. They should have choreographed the final showdown so that Batman only wins by default or he cheats to win because the clock is ticking.

I wish all the DC movies could be like the dark knight was being more serious and dark and less humorous but that's just me
Malyssa C
Sequel meet nightwing. GIVE US NIGHTWING!!!
Rufus stoned

Marvel Presents
904th like
Thanks for telling me what I already knew, and for helping decide what movie I'm putting on next
Martin R
Christian Bale did a phenomenal job as Batman. No interest in seeing Ben as batman, just doesn't seem to fit. Wish they would have cast someone else
Sean Murray
if there were to be a sequel the only logical choice would be Batman Beyond.
Masked Singer
The ending was straight forward. No need to explain except to roll out more videos to cash in.
Patrick McHale
A great Batman film series.
It would be nice to make him NightWing so it leaves batman as symbolic to save the city
tyler slaven
I still pray Joseph Gordon Levitt with be Nightwing in a movie one day
