Bruce Wayne is the 1%, Batman is the 99%

This will probably be my only non-military related post but I thought some people here would get a kick out of this new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises.


This latest installment in the Caped Crusader franchise seems to borrow a page from the Occupy Wall Street movement. Those political undertones came across via a few lines of dialogue spoken during the sneak peek.

In particular, Catwoman's (Anne Hathaway) warning to Bruce Wayne/Batman (Christian Bale) -- "You and your friends better batten down the hatches because when it hits, you're all going to wonder how you ever thought how you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us" -- struck some as evidence of distinct Occupy undertones.
