Batman graces the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly, which hits shelves on Friday. The magazine also features interviews with Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale.
Here is what Bale had to say about the film:
“I can tell you the truth because I’m done with it. I felt immense pressure. And I think it’s a good pressure, because you owe it to the films — and the people’s expectations — to make great work.”
The magazine contains some SPOILERS and states that the film "returns to The Batcave (M.I.A. during The Dark Knight, as Wayne Manor was still being rebuilt following the events of Batman Begins) and that Rises takes places eight years after The Dark Knight. In fact, fans may want to revisit that second film, according to Nolan.
Nolan revealed some interesting info about the highly anticipated end to the saga. He stated that the film "explores the ramifications of The Dark Knight’s chilling climax, in which Batman and super-cop Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) hatch a conspiracy to cover up the sins of Gotham City’s so-called 'white knight,' the late Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face (Aaron Eckhart)."
He goes on to discuss the potential political subtext of the film and talks about Bane's voice:
“I think when people see the film, things will come into focus. Bane is very complex and very interesting and when people see the finished film people will be very entertained by him.”
The Dark Knight Rises is one of my most anticipated films of this year. The movie arrives in theaters on July 20. Are you looking forward to seeing it?
