The Dark Knight Rises

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!

Here are the new photos from The Dark Knight Rises (see EW's small cover picture right here too):

The Dark Knight Rises - Bane vs. Batman

Jonah Nolan also recently spoke with ComingSoon about Bane and said, "I gotta tell you, I think what Tom Hardy's doing with the role is spectacular. I have the benefit of seeing a little bit more than the audience has seen at this point. It's pretty spectacular." Considering the debate around Bane's voice, the pressure is on to have a villain that can be as great as Heath Ledger's Joker. 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.

The Dark Knight Rises - Bruce Wayne in the Batcave

Eight years after The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to the limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent.

The Dark Knight Rises is once again directed by Oscar nominated British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight and Inception previously. The script was co-written by Christopher & Jonathan Nolan (The Prestige, The Dark Knight), from a story by Chris Nolan & David S. Goyer (of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight). Warner Bros is bringing The Dark Knight Rises to regular and IMAX theaters everywhere July 20th, 2012 this summer. The Legend Ends...

    Bane is looking more and more like Subzero from Mortal Kombat. PREPARE TO FIGHT!

      KMFDM should have scored The Dark Knight Rises.

    Man, I wish Bane wasn't shorter than Batman....
    • JBrotsis
      i was thinking the exact same thing when i first saw the heading picture. i always imagined from the comics Bane, being this incredibly jacked dude that (not exactly towered over) but was definitely taller than Batman.

        To be far, the bat's got those ears sticking up, say 3-4 inches!

    Looks like two brothers dressed up for Halloween and started to fight.

      Yeah but they were dressed as Batman and Bane. In that regard, Obama looks like someone who dressed up as Obama for halloween and did a really really good impression of him.

    Please do note that these are shots that will probably last all of a few seconds in the film. It's reported that Bane due to the way it's shot looks much larger than Batman when they are fighting frequently. I have no doubt in my mind that not only will Tom Hardy pull it off brilliantly but that Nolan will not let us down. Let the legend end! THE FIRE RISES!

    I'm finding it so hard to recognize Tom Hardy in that Bane outfit/character. Usually you can "see" a person in a costume just by identifying small facial features like eyes, chins, or mouths....but everytime I look at Bane, I can't see Tom Hardy. That must be a good thing then!
  • Kyle Robinson
    Looks better than Green Lantern and Man of Steel. Why does WB employ the same crappy people to make their tent pole films? 
    • nate
      Christopher Nolan is heading up Man of Steel.
    • Max Renn
      Anything is better than Green Lantern.
      • Croniccris
        catwoman is better than green lantern?
  • Roderick
    i wonder if the skin on banes head that are hidden by the mask are covered with hair and he just shaves the parts that he can reach...
  • batsupe
    This movie is easily the most anticipated for me this year!! Tom Hardy is a great actor and the prologue gave me goosebumps! Cant Wait!! 
  • onurtunc
    Garry, Garry.. I felt sorry for that nobody mentions you. Actually Mr. Oldman is what makes Batman and Gotham more and more believable in these films. And I can't stop thinking that Gary would be a great Ra's Al Ghul if he was not cast as Gordon...
  • Steven
    In regard to Hardy being to small for Bane, what 'muscle' do we have in Hollywood with actor skills on par with Hardy?
