The Dark Knight Rises Cover

Finally a worth update on The Dark Knight Rises, since its been rather quiet recently. Thanks to a tip from Nolan Fans, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled their new cover for Chris Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, starring Christian Bale as Batman, with Tom Hardy as Bane. This cover actually features Batman and Catwoman, played by Anne Hathaway, who is definitely more suitable cover material for magazine racks. She's in full Catwoman gear standing behind Batman, but as Nolan tells EW, "She has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about, which implies an underlying darkness." See it below!

There may be more to see inside the issue, but this is all that's available for now. View their post.

The Dark Knight Rises Entertainment Weekly

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…

Is Batman smiling ever-so-slightly?

guest on Apr 11, 2012

Jericho on Apr 11, 2012


It's between two pillows.

BeepBeepRichie on Apr 11, 2012


 youre talking about his ass, right? :l

LosZombies on Apr 11, 2012


batwings, battumblers and automobiles.

JJ King on Apr 12, 2012


Catwoman looks okay I guess...she'd probably look better with shorter hair.

Thepostmaster on Apr 11, 2012


 Yep. Not digging the long hair but I'd still fuck her...

Bl00dwerK on Apr 11, 2012


she looks like Nolan has a hidden love for the 60s catwoman....

Jericho on Apr 11, 2012


i think many have a not particularly well hidden love for Julie Newmar, and who can blame them?

son_et_lumiere on Apr 11, 2012


Check out "Love and Other Drugs" for nudies of Catwoman, well... Anne Hathaway.

Bwalsh1975 on Apr 23, 2012


I was hoping for the full cowl and goggles look from the modern day series (like Ahrkam City, very sexy) but knowing that it's Anne Hathaway... This will do.

Nick M. on Apr 11, 2012


Agreed. B:AC was an amazing game and I kept visualizing Anne Hathaway dressed that way in TDKR. Oh well, I'll just watch Havok for those lonely nights.

McWetty on Apr 11, 2012


Hahaha! Havok! Good movie. Ecspecially with her.

Nick M. on Apr 11, 2012


Awkward photo...kinda kewl.

Xerxexx on Apr 11, 2012


why is catwomans hair and face unconcealed? if we wanted a more realistic take on the character, she would probably try her best to hide her features. i mean, its not too bad, but it just reminds me of those early and strange renditions of catwoman. sorry. just my own opinion.

gguy on Apr 11, 2012


Meh...still not digging catwoman too much...I still think Black Widow looks sexier...

jah p on Apr 11, 2012


Mmm... ScarJo.  Watched The Island 2 nights ago and I remembered why she is so hot.

McWetty on Apr 11, 2012


That batsuit is the business, I swear. This hypes so much.... Yeah, Anne Hathaway could use some work but I bet Nolan conjures the beast. +1, +1 Always, The Sexy and Stylish John Stamos

John Stamos on Apr 11, 2012


Catwoman.......ehhhh..I perfer the Arkham City costume for her, but still looking forward to this.

ur_babys_daddy on Apr 11, 2012


Batmans cowl look weird.

Ryderup on Apr 11, 2012


Meh... The usual horrible EW cover photography. Bad lighting. When are they going to hire a professional photographer?

HyperJ on Apr 11, 2012


what is so bad about the lighting? its not dark so i dont get it

wazzao on Apr 12, 2012


... In Nolan We Trust, but this Catwoman I don't like. Michelle Pfeiffer forever in my book.

Yahzee on Apr 11, 2012


Maybe we can swap the Batsuit nipples and put them on Catwoman?

McWetty on Apr 11, 2012


I hope Catwoman doesn't ruin the movie. Not digging her costume, but we'll see.

Elbak on Apr 11, 2012


Catwoman's suit looks pretty nice but the mask and the cat ears don't look good. Can't wait for the dark knight rises its gunna be awesome!

Jalts4 on Apr 11, 2012


Once again, nothing screams Dark Knight like a well-lit photograph. F'n awful...the only marketing pic they've got right so far is the dark, rainy poster of Bane walking away from Batman's shattered mask.

BeepBeepRichie on Apr 11, 2012


Batman: What the hell are you? Catwoman: A cat, duh (Pointing to the ears). Batman: You don't look like a cat! Catwoman: You don't sound like a bat! Batman: Touche! 

Faceman721 on Apr 11, 2012


Re: CatWoman's unconcealed mask: Gotham will be in a state of revolution. The rebels will take over the city, others will be in hiding...a criminal such as Selina Kyle will not need to hide her identity really because crime will be rampant, and her identity will not matter to them. 

wtf on Apr 11, 2012


this looks to weird.

happy camper on Apr 11, 2012


Looks to me like the "Cat ears" are actually her googles pushed up onto her head.  I don't mind it, I'm not totally sold, but I have faith in Nolan, he hasn't put a foot wrong so far.

Warren Carroll on Apr 11, 2012


Still not sold on the idea  of Anne Hathaway being Catwoman.

Guest on Apr 11, 2012


On your music issue last week.  I agree  that this was Adele's year.  But in your choices of the top 30 greatest acartists today in music, how Josh Groban wasn't right behind Adele not only a mistake but an allout joke by your writing staff. One more like this and the only thing I will be writing back will be my cancellation notice.....   

Steven Rochelle on Apr 12, 2012


she doesnt sell catwoman to me...shame. on the other hand prometheus is looking better every day. so ill see that and not this. 

nutbush on Apr 12, 2012


I Agree. Anne is a fine actress but the mask..looks like something out of Austin Powers. I dunno. I was never a fan of TDK. One of the few I suppose. As talented as Nolan is, he sure is not (yet) in the same league as someone like Ridley Scott. Even tho the Prestige comes close to be a genius of a film, to me this year is about Sir Ridley Scott's return to a genre he really did define. 

Buzzfunk on Apr 12, 2012


 Count me in on that aswell.  Prometheus will be best movie of the year IMO.

Jesse The Body Snuka on Apr 12, 2012


Why do we have to see Batman on EW.. I miss the virals. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

erin on Apr 12, 2012


Have you seen the Prometheus viral stuff? Going to be hard to top that 'fake' TED session. 

Buzzfunk on Apr 12, 2012


You are all douchebags, especially Xerxexx. Stop commenting on pointless things, go outside and get some sun.

The Truth Hurts on Apr 12, 2012


 Why so seriouS? Let's put a smile on that face.

The Joker on Apr 12, 2012


This movie will rock so hard.

Manuel on Apr 12, 2012


My big problem with Chris Nolan is action itself. Action in batman begins was not bad but only not bad! Only chasing in subway with batcar was superb. Action in dark knight is very little and mean too! Only batcycle in subway was superb too! In both movies one same sequence was superb! Chris was little god director in my opinion but he must take focus on them! We dislike perfunctory action sequences ! Also I love him and believe in storytelling and complexing of his mind!

Ehsan Davodi on Apr 12, 2012


That Catwoman is a turn off. And I thought that after Hally Berry it could´nt be worst. She is suposed to be sexy, and that outfit and that face ain´t helping.

Mirster on Apr 14, 2012


Catwoman is meant to be badass, that's what makes her sexy. She doesn't need to show skin to do that. 

AC on Apr 25, 2012


no love for bane?

Kronik on May 19, 2012


Anne Hathaway as catwoman was just the worst choice...i hope the rest of the movie will be good as it seems, at least...
