New Batsuit revealed, more Dark Knight Rises spoilers

New Batsuit revealed, more Dark Knight Rises spoilers

If those advance ticket sales are anything to go by (the film, though not due for release until July, is already quickly selling out of opening week tickets), “The Dark Knight Rises” might be just be the most anticipated film of 2012.

… But will it be the best film of 2012?

EW has a cover story on the film and aside from offering up our first look at the new Bat suit (it’s getting a mixed response) and it includes comments from Christian Bale and Christian Nolan regarding the worthiness of the “Batman Begins” threequel.

Bale says :

“I can tell you the truth because I’m done with it: I felt immense pressure,” Christian Bale tells EW. “And I think it’s a good pressure, because you owe it to the films — and the people’s expectations — to make great work.”

The magazine also has some minor spoilers for the film :

* SPOILER ALERT *

We know some Batman fans want to know absolutely nothing about Rises, so much so that even the smallest bit of intel requires a SPOILER ALERT! Like the fact that the new movie returns to The Batcave (M.I.A. during The Dark Knight, as Wayne Manor was still being rebuilt following the events of Batman Begins), or that Rises takes places eight years after The Dark Knight. In fact, fans may want to revisit that second film, as Nolan tells EW that the last chapter of his cinematic saga explores the ramifications of The Dark Knight’s chilling climax, in which Batman and super-cop Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) hatch a conspiracy to cover up the sins of Gotham City’s so-called “white knight,” the late Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face (Aaron Eckhart). Nolan also discusses the potential political subtext of Rises and addresses the burning question many fans have about Bane’s mask-muffled voice: Are we going to be able to understand the guy? “I think when people see the film, things will come into focus,” says the director. “Bane is very complex and very interesting and when people see the finished film people will be very entertained by him.”

Nothing we didn’t really know, I guess. Still, I like to add the spoiler tag just in case someone’s returned from 1985 – where it was completely spoiler free – and stumbled upon this bad-secret-keeper thing called the Internet.
