Some New Images from 'The Dark Knight Rises' + Nolan Talks Bane
Though six months lie between now and the release of The Dark Knight Rises, some midnight IMAX screenings in New York and Los Angeles are already sold out. At least one more official trailer will probably hit before the film's release, but until then we have a few new images which you can check out below. In addition EW recently talked with Christopher Nolan about the debacle concerning Bane's muffled voice and he said, "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." Photos below!

Meanwhile, Christian Bale felt the pressure too as he told EW, "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.” And on that note, here's a couple more images from EW (via Comic Book Movie) featuring Bale as The Dark Knight.
