It’s been postulated that James Holmes may have set out to impart destruction not at the local town’s Dark Knight Rises premiere but that of NYC because it would have been in keeping with the grand statement he sought to make about the decay of society and to put his acts on a world stage outing that so few could possibly have envisaged.

What though may have tempered his decision to stay local was the fear that he risked being caught with a car load of weaponry.

The National Enquirer reported that actors Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway and Gary Oldman were Holmes’ original targets, with their deaths being in the very city the movie was filmed in, according to an initial police investigation.

Said a source: 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.’

Of course it would have been no coincident that NYC the center of the 9-11 attacks drew a type of perverse nostalgia for mortal danger and the ultimate high of kitsch debasement. Then again perhaps the comment from one reader below comes quite close in exploring what may have been in James Holmes mind when he initially contemplated his attack in NYC:

I still don’t think the films and their content triggered this, I think he chose this premiere because, since pop culture is a major part of people’s lives and this is the pop culture event of the year, choosing it as a platform for his massacre would be a much surer way of getting a huge reaction than, say, shooting up a school or a mall. Because sadly those things happen often enough that people expect them to happen, but no one expected a movie theater shooting in the middle of the night at the first screening of a film that already has been getting extensive attention from the media and the public as it was. And that alone is why the huge deal. Not because of the film, but because no one has ever done it before. If he thought shooting up a sports game or a TV station or a screening of Madagascar would get the biggest reaction then that’s what would have happened instead. It’s not about the movie itself, it’s about what would be the most shocking and unexpected.
