Did Michael Caine Give Away a 'Dark Knight Rises' Spoiler?

Michael Caine and Christian Bale
I liked this little tidbit of info about The Dark Knight Rises that ReelzChannel posted (via Collider). It's just a few comments from Michael Caine, who of course plays Alfred Pennyworth in the third and final Christopher Nolan-directed Batman film.

Caine's comments about "them" and "they" in the quote below are leading some to wonder if the plot involves ol' Bruce partnering up with someone in this installment - a certain feline hottie, perhaps?
"It’s fantastic. I started filming last week and I film next week. As the butler, I do a load of filming at the beginning, and everybody goes off and does all the adventures and they all come home shot to pieces and I patch them together when they all get back.  
Christopher Nolan, I think, is one of the greatest directors in the world and I’ve been lucky enough...this is my fifth movie with him. It’s such a pleasure to work with him and he’s so clever. We’ve all signed the Official Secrets Act. I’m lucky to be able to tell you the title of the movie. I remember I did an interview and someone said to me, "What are you doing next?" I said, "I’m doing Batman." I saw Chris and he said, "Why did you tell them you were doing Batman?" I said, "Because I am." He said, "You’re supposed to keep it secret." I said, "I couldn’t keep that a secret. 
Let me tell you…the plot is extraordinary...really extraordinary. I know why he wants to keep it a secret. You really need not to know till you see the movie."- Michael Caine

  1. The comment is certainly catnip for Fanboys like me who would like to see the Cat and The Bat Get Friendly in the sequel!

  2. Hey Tom - sorry for the late reply. Yep I'm betting Bats has company in this one. Should make for a fantastic finale to the trilogy!
