Some say sections of President Trump's speech sound a lot like Bane in the film "Batman: The Dark Knight Rises," so we decided to find out just how similar the two are. (Peter Stevenson/The Washington Post)

The speaker painted a bleak picture of a world run by elites, in which the little guy was being stomped on by the oppressive ruling class — a ruling class that could only be ousted by an unprecedented uprising by the masses themselves.

The solution to that oppression? Turning power back over to the people.

We're speaking, of course, about the bad guy in the last Batman movie — Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises.”

And: yes, okay, President Trump's inaugural address hit some of the same notes.

Democrats pretty much across the board slammed Trump's speech as “dark” and “divisive.”

But beyond the thematic similarities, a short section of Trump's speech sounded like it could have been lifted word-for-word from Bane. Watch and decide for yourself.
