Conspiracy Or Coincidence: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ + Aurora + Sandy Hook

I’m not sure what to think of all of this, but I thought I’d share it anyway. On Tuesday morning, the caretaker for my store and surrounding business randomly came in and told me about this crazy video he had watched that points out footage in The Dark Knight Rises that makes reference to Aurora (the Colorado city where the shootings happened in the theatre during the premiere of the film) as well as Sandy Hook, which of course is the name of the elementary school where the devastating shooting happened this past Friday.

A site called DiscloseTV uploaded a video on December 16 that points out the references in The Dark Knight Rises that he believes indicate that all of the tragedies were a big set up. Aside from the Aurora sign in the footage, another clip shows a close up of a map. On this map, the other other legible name on the map other than Gotham is… Sandy Hook. Not only that, that Gordon says, “To mark the truck. Get a GPS on it so we can start to figure out how to bring it down.” A few seconds later, he literally points to and puts his finger right on the name, “Sandy Hook.”

The uploader/narrator of the video then makes reference to The Matrix and mentions that Neo’s passport expired 9/11, 2001 in that movie. I’m not sure how to wrap my head around this. Is he suggesting that people in Hollywood and media are sending out subliminal messages to people to carry out mass murders? Is he saying that people in Hollywood are so sick that they’re leaving clues to murders they intend to carry out? Or is this all simply a coincidence? Watch the video below and share your thoughts in the comments.

    The Aurora sign is from the movie Skyfall

    The skyscraper with Aurora is an CGI edit of an actual famous skyscraper in Shanghai made to look like it is in Gotham, the building has appeared in several other films including Skyfall and Mission Impossible III.

    As for Sandy Hook appearing on a map, it is established that Gotham is a interpretation of NYC/Chicago so there is a chance that we’d see Sandy Hook appear on a map of the US North East. I wonder how many more we’d see if we combed the film archives of any movie that had a shot of a map of NYC and the surrounding area.

    This guy sounds like a joke.
