This is not the real opening credits sequence from The Dark Knight Rises. But it should be.
Turkish graphic designer Doğan Can Gündoğdu created these fake opening credits for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises for, according to a Tweet, a “video lesson.” One assumes this means it was made for a lesson of some kind related to the Communication Design in Bahcesehir University reference in his bio.
Can you imagine? Creating something of this caliber for a college lecture? Or from the other perspective, can you imagine what it would be like to walk into your classroom and have this as the centerpiece of the lesson you sit through? Beats the heck out of any school lesson I ever heard.
Gündoğdu’s take on the tone of The Dark Knight Rises is just brilliant. He totally gets the importance of conveying that eight years have passed since the last film, and establishing the setting of where we pick back up with the story. He even incorporates the Bane chant heard in the official trailer.
