TDKR: Christian Bale & Anne Hathaway Grace The Cover Of EW As BATMAN & CATWOMAN

Check out the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly, featuring new images of Bale and Hathaway as The Caped Crusader and his feline foe from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises..

Here is the cover of EW's current Summer Preview issue. Thanks to RIMbreaks for the high res pic..

They also have some quotes from the director and cast of the movie. Christopher Nolan shares his thoughts on two of Batman's villains (one of whom may become an ally), Bane and Catwoman..

“He represents formidable physical strength, combined with absolute evil of intention."

“She has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about, which implies an underlying darkness.”

Tom Hardy also talks about the reaction to Bane's somewhat muffled voice. Apparently there is a very specific reason the character speaks the way he does..

“It’s a risk, because we could be laughed at — or it could be very fresh and exciting,” says Hardy, adding that the voice he developed was influenced by many factors, including a desire to honor the comic book character’s brains and Caribbean heritage. “The audience mustn’t be too concerned about the mumbly voice,” says Hardy. “As the film progresses, I think you’ll be able to tune to its setting.”

And finally, Anne Hathaway once again speaks about the intense training she underwent to get ready for the role of Catwoman..

“I had to physically transform. Chris sat me down at the beginning and said, ‘Joseph Gordon-Levitt did all of his own fighting in Inception. That one zero-gravity fight? He trained for two months.’ I basically left his office and went to the gym and just came out about five minutes ago.”

Nothing too revealing plot-wise from Nolan and co, but it's nice to have some new news on the upcoming Batman threequel. For more on TDKR as well as many more great Summer flicks coming out way be sure to pick up the latest issue of EW, on sale now.

Lilvic92 - 4/11/2012, 10:50 AM
Batman looks great but that's nothing new.
ManThing - 4/11/2012, 10:52 AM
In regards to what Hardy said: I'll buy that for a dollar.

I don't have any problem with the voice. I like the way it sounds. It seems like it might be interesting to listen to.

It's the build I have a problem with. But that's normal for me. I always say that lol

I'm a stickler for that because I am a bodybuilder. I know the magic a Hollywood trainer can work, given enough time with the actor. But that's just my thing...

Theatrical trailer debut: May 4th or May 11th...

“As the film progresses, I think you’ll be able to tune to its setting.”

So you mean we have to painfully concentrate on every word to try and understand the dialogue. Sounds great and not at all distracting.
bathead - 4/11/2012, 10:59 AM
This is DC so it SUCKS!!! Its not Disney so it SUCKS!!! Catwoman looks like CAT-BURGALER more than a feline cat so it SUCKS!!! ScoJo as Black widow is chubby and can't act but its Marvel so I love it!!! DC is putting out a movie the same year as Marvel so I have to HATE THIS!!! If I like this Marvel will be mad at me!!! Stan Lee will kick my ass!!!

There you go guys. I typed it all for you, now let us have one TDKR thread on here without all that crap.
MakioGrant - 4/11/2012, 11:00 AM

Very nice Antonio
EarOne - 4/11/2012, 11:06 AM
Batman's neck looks like that of an iguana..sorry, just sayin' (NOT as an anti-nolan or anti-batman) as matter-of-factly.

it's so predictable though that EW WOULD lean more toward TDKR, since it's owned by Warner.
