Gotham’s Mayor Passes Harvey Dent Act in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

     June 19, 2012


If anyone is going to have a reasonable, practical solution to a problem, it’s a politician, am I right?  So it’s no surprise that Gotham City Mayor Anthony Garcia (Nestor Carbonell) has passed a recent piece of legislation known as the Harvey Dent Act, presumably early on in the events of The Dark Knight Rises.  It serves to close the loopholes that allow organized crime to subsist in the city while marking the masked vigilante known as Batman (Christian Bale) as a villainous force who nearly stamped out Gotham’s hope.  It also honors Dent’s sacrifices and establishes a city-wide remembrance on Harvey Dent Day.  Isn’t that nice? Hit the jump to check it out.

Sure this piece of legislation isn’t as flashy as the newest trailer we brought you, but it’s a nice tie-in to the ending of The Dark Knight.  Check out the act below (via CBM):
