Early this morning Cosmic Book News posted an article about the death scene change for Matthew Modine’s character in The Dark Knight Rises.
From previous set video (below), it seemed originally the plan was for Modine to die more of a hero when he was run down by a Tumbler while pushing someone out of the way.
However, what we got on screen was far different than that as a cut-scene was just shown with Modine’s dead body.
As we said in our previous article, it left the audience wondering.
Upon getting the article tweeted to him, Modine responded on his own Twitter to Cosmic Book News with the following:
@BunchOfSteve @cosmicbooknews it’s a spoiler steve, an epic spoiler in my case.

Seems Modine may have been disappointed on the final take just as audiences were, and makes one wonder how much of the other footage Christopher Nolan changed in The Dark Knight Rises.
The Dark Knight Rises opens in theaters July 20th, 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christian Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred, Juno Temple and Josh Pence as a young Ra’s al Ghul.
