Entertainment Weekly features Christian Bale as The Batman from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES on its latest cover.
Regarding his role as the iconic character in the final film of the Christopher Nolan trilogy, the actor told the magazine:
“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.”
Slightly Spoilerific nuggets from the feature article includes the known-for- some-time fact that eight years have elapsed for Bruce Wayne since THE DARK KNIGHT. It confirms that the suspected plot element that the self-sacrificing deception that the Batman and James Gordon (Gary Oldman) used to sheild the public from the truth of the murderous actions of respected D.A. Harvey Dent will come back to haunt them, as Bane (Tom Hardy) comes to spread anarchy in Gotham City.
Also, the Bat Cave will return to the screen, presumably fitted with high tech gear.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES in standard and IMAX theaters on July 20th from Warner Brothers Pictures.
