Just like one of Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' movies, the plot thickens by the minute.
As James Holmes' horrific attack at a midnight screening of 'The Dark Knight Rises' continues to sicken the world, new reports are suggesting that the movie's A-list stars Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway were his original targets.
The 24-year-old, who dyed his hair orange and referred to himself as The Joker, shocked the world when he entered a midnight screening of the movie armed with a gun, killing a confirmed 12 people and injuring over 50 more.
However new reports now suggest that the cinema goers were NOT his original targets; in fact, he had planned to launch an attack on the cast of the 'Batman' film.
A police source revealed the shocking details to US newspaper National Enquirer, explaining that Holmes wanted to "strike a blow on Gotham City":
The source said: "He wanted to kill Bale who plays Batman, along with the rest of the cast and God knows how many innocent people. In his sick fantasy he wanted to strike a blow on Gotham City which represents New York City in the movie. It was the fantasy of this deranged monster."
Had Holmes attended the New York premiere of the film, he would have had easy access to Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and countless other members of the cast and public.
The source also added that Holmes ended up changing his plans at the last minute "due to paranoia that police would catch him with a car-load of weaponry."

It took six county employees over an hour to count the money, and then stuff it into three bags to take to the bank. The couple said they were trying to make a statement that taxes were too high. But a California man had a very different reason for paying his …
