SAGES lecturer Brad Ricca talks “Dark Knight Rises” anticipation

‘Batman’ ready for box office battle

The Detroit News: The third and final film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, opens Friday and is expected to pull in big money at the box office. The movie does well because it represents “the perfect teenage male fantasy,” said SAGES lecturer Brad Ricca. “You don’t have to come from outer space, you don’t have to have superpowers. If you are rich enough, and you can devote 10 years of your life to learning this kung-fu fighting technique, you can be Batman if you really wanted to.”
