The Batcave:

The set-which occupies most of a massive L.A. soundstage-is extraordinary for being exactly what it needs to be. Just a big old cave. One with a working waterfall that feeds a subterranena lake, as well as a concrete platform that rises up from the watery deep and hides secret plastic cabinetry that can pop up from the floor with the press of a button.

Bane-Dark-Knight-Rises-image-Tom-HardyChristian Bale on His Last Day in the Batsuit:

Christian Bale: “My last day in the suit was also the last day of shooting for me. I was in New York, on top of a downtown skyscraper. The day began with Morgan Freeman and then ended with Anee Hathaway. I got to say goodbye from within the batcowl. it was very quiet, just a couple people there. But in the midst of it, I said, ‘Hold on a sec. Let me take a moment. This is it. I’m never going to have this claustrophobia again!’ So I had to pause. I had to.”

“It’s a fascintating thing, that suit, don’t you think? And since I am generally within it, I actually don’t get to see it that often. Not the way that other people do.”

“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 greatwork.”

Christopher Nolan Talk about Occupy Wall Street:

Nolan denies reports that he wanted to shoot the protesters who encamped in Zuccotti Park last fall for the film. He and his collaborators conceived Rises more than three years ago, he notes, and obtained their New York shooting permits “nine months before Occupy Wall Street even existed.” Still, he’s not shying away from the implications. “The truth is, we wanted to shoot on Wall Street for the same iconic reasons that the Occupy movement chose that location: It is a symbol of American wealth and capitalism,” says Nolan, who hasjust begun editing the movie and cautions that the question of relevancy is premature. “In trying to tell as story of a self-made hero who is a multibillionaire, it raises certain issues that I do think are important in the world today, about the use and abuse of wat is Bruce Wayne’s only superpower” extraordinary wealth.”

Dark-Knight-Rises-image-Batman-new-gunInspirations for The Dark Knight Rises:

Christopher Nolan: In seeking to craft “a portrayal of a city and the different strata of people living in it,” Nolan and his brother were inspired by Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities and the silent cinema of Fritz Lang, arguably best known for the sci-fi landmark Metropolis.

Gotham’s Prosperity since the Events of The Dark Knight:

Jonathan Nolan:
“If Batman’s plan was to stamp out crime the new movie asks: What if the plan actually worked?”

Christopher Nolan: “At least superficially. The movie deals with the idea that if you’ve papered over the cracks, then you’re just solving problems in a way that may not hold for the future.”

    I’m sure the cosplay community thanks Nolan for all the close and detail shots of Banes mask.

  • Your kinda dumb

    You should look up a definition of synopsis.

    • AlbertRuncorn

      Haha Matt really can’t catch a break these days

    • Chachi

      Finding it funny that you are calling someone out for being dumb and then you misspell ‘your’. Should be ‘you’re’. Nice job for being ‘kinda dumb’.

  • Jenelle C

    Can this movie just come out already and stop teasing us? Sheesh! Anyone else disturbed by that picture of Bane just looking dead at you? I can’t tell which emotion he his eyes are trying to display – pain or confusion???

    • Rozz

      Apparently in the movie the apparatus that Bane is hooked up to is constantly supplying him with a pain-killer because he suffering from some sort of pain, not sure how true it is though. Could explain your thoughts on his eyes though.

  • Jenelle C

    That scratch on Bruce Wayne’s arm looks like a product of Catwoman

    • Eric Nixon

      It’s not a scratch. It’s the scar from the dog attack that happened at the beginning of The Dark Knight.

  • sense 11

    Not knowing why Joseph Gordon Levitt is in this movie might drive me crazy before the summer

    • Reut

      I think I figured out what his role is going to be but I don’t want to be a giant douche and ruin it if I’m right. Even a hint might ruin it

    • AlexHeyNa

      Why do people continue to think JGL is playing an extremely significant–secret–role? It’s already been said that he’s playing a cop that’s helping Gordon help Batman. There were absolutely no hints–other than early rumors–that he will be Robin or The Riddler or the new Batman or anything else.

      It’s getting annoying.

      • sense 11

        I guess we’ll see,

        don’t think its a small roll tho

    Tom Hardy’s eyes kind of remind me of Liam Neeson!

  • english gent

    The story – gotham is quiet batman has retired then bane rises and releases mayhem. He fights bane and loses broken back. Alfred sends him to india where he recovers and retrains and comes back (rises) and saves the day. At the end Gordan levit takes the suit and the role of batman.

  • english gent

    all speculation of course :-)

  • mattn

    Funnily enough, im reading a tale of two cities now. My guess is that Gotham will be in a state of revolution, with the poor taking over and brutally persecuting the rich, just like paris in the book.
    Also, it might be that the movie is told not just from Batmans perspective ,but from catwoman and JGls too.

    • News Hit

      I don’t think that the film will have multiple perspectives, however, I feel that the figures of Catwoman and Blake will be important. I suggest we won’t see Batman doing much action for the first third (echoing the structure of Batman Begins), so Blake and Catwoman will be performing action duties for the early part of the story until Bruce comes out of retirement.

      Also, what is with the spelling in the EW article? Don’t they have subs anymore?

  • henri

    will it be as good as first two,sounds like it may be

  • Jacob

    The whole of batman is about crime in a city and a guy called batman wanting to stop it. In real life you can never stop crime so if this film ends saying batman’s fixed it forever, that’s bull. And if not then it will all be about setting up a foundation to stop crime in Gotham for as long as possible. So this is called the police, but they’ll get corrupt again or continous strings of batmans… forever

  • Nina

    Chris Nolan is a genius and Bale is the best Batman!!!

    • Lizard King

      While I agree that Nolan is a genius and helped change the way comic book movies are viewed, I disagree about Bale. I’d say Kevin Conroy from Batman: The Animated Series is the best Batman.

  • Tarek

    Nolan + Gary Oldman + Christian Bale + Tom Hardy = Epic Final
