First Tidbits of 'The Dark Knight Rises' Viral Found in a CIA Bulletin?
Alert! Dr. Leonid Pavel is wanted by the CIA, he went missing after working at a Russian nuclear facility, but has re-appeared recently and is a "high priority." So what do we have here? Wired (via SuperHeroHype) is claiming to have some interesting Central Intelligence Agency documents, a bulletin to be exact, that are part of the very first pieces, tidbits so to say, of a viral for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, which has had threads of a viral before but not much. On top of that, Empire has posted another memo, a transcript of an interview, that also somehow connects in with everything. So what does it all mean, Basil?
Here's the first CIA document showing Dr. Leonid Pavel, apparently a photo of actor Alon Abutbul, and a lot of info about him and how he's wanted, with plenty of it redacted. How it all connects, no one knows yet, as even Wired says "why the spooks want to find him is a mystery, even to us." What is there to find in here?
Here's the second interview document as posted by Empire, that also features a lot of redacted lines, too:
Now the really weird thing is that both Wired and Empire don't even mention The Dark Knight Rises at all, it was only SHH/CS that put it all together and said that's what this is for. So is that what this is for? How does it connect and what does it have to do with anything? Wired actually specifically mentions this was "provided… to provide you with an enigmatic plot clue to an upcoming cultural event." Is there an event to attend coming up, or is it just the IMAX prologue teaser, hitting some IMAX theaters with Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. Only time will tell unless someone figures out there's actual clues hidden within these images. Maybe it's the connection between everything. Anyone know? We'll add any updates below.
