Spoilers! New THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Info On The Bat, Batman's EMP Gun & Bane's Device

Click the jump if you'd like to read some spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises. Ther is information on Batman's new flying vehicle "The Bat," his EMP rifle, and Bane's mysterious device.

If you read my article yesterday then it's no surprise that Bane's mysterious device is actually a fusion reactor. Today, we have some more new information on the device. It comes from a fictional letter that was included in the tie-in book, "The Dark Knight Manual : Tools, Weapons, Vehicles and Documents from the Batcave." The letter is from Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) and it's intended for Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard).


One such project is a clean fuel source - a new kind of safe energy poised to change the world: a fusion reactor that produces zero radiation and uses no fossil fuels. Rigorous testing is underway to eliminate all potential complications prior to launching the reactor on a global scale. Many aspects of this project are classified due to their sensitive nature.

The reactor is kept below Wayne Enterprises recycling plant located on the Gotham River. In the event of a security breach or, in a worst-case scenario, a meltdown, the reactor can be flooded and cooled down before it reaches a critical point. Tubing and shaft-ways lead directly to the device and can funnel river water into the reactor's core were its temperature to reach critical levels. Entry into the reactor is marked by a tamper-proof fingerprint identifier to prevent infiltration.

THE BAT - Lucius Fox encouraged the use of a prototype air vehicle that Wayne Enterprises once developed for the Department of Defense. It was created as a tool for urban pacification and could handle tight geometric maneuvers between buildings without recirculation. Fox dubbed it "the Bat." the craft has large propellers on either side of its undercarriage, which create a vortex of air and lift the vehicle off the ground. The dual rotor downdraft from the propellers can also function as a weapon. The cyclonic winds from the spinning blades have the power to force individuals to the ground and cause general disruption to an area. The Bat's autopilot function, which effectively kills the floodlights and shuts down the craft's main engines, allowing it to quietly hover through sensitive areas, is currently disabled.

EMP DEVICE - In order to effect a communications blackout, a device is used that delivers an electromagnetic pulse that can disrupt electronic equipment. The pulse is able to activate and deactivate at a preset time for the requested length needed. this gadget effectively cancels all closed-circuit camera feeds as well as cellular transmission, whith a predetermined distance. It must, however, be within close proximity of the area that it is affecting in order to remain effective.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.
