THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Producer Emma Thomas Briefly Comments on Bane and Catwoman

During an interview with Total Film Christopher Nolan's wife shared a few tidbits about the most intriguing additions to the cast of the third and final Batman film.

Total Film sat down with Emma Thomas to discuss The Dark Knight Rises. The full interview will be published in their upcoming issue that will be released on the 16th. Til then you can check out this brief snippet just to get your juices flowing.

When discussing Tom Hardy's Bane, Emma told the magazine, "Tom made a massive physical transformation for the role... It really is an intense performance.”

“He finally feels like a match for Batman – both physically and mentally.”

Thomas is confident that sparks will fly: “Christian Bale and Tom Hardy are both such fiercely committed actors that pitching them as adversaries works incredibly well – they have such a great chemistry on camera.”

As for Anne Hathaway's role as Catwoman, Thomas promised that their version is fresh, “It’s completely new, and it’s a really interesting role. You never quite know where you are with her.”

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Garly Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.

Once July comes this movie will dominate the buzz, Avengers will be exciting but it won't be the next Iron Man.

An exciting year with this, The Avengers, Prometheus, Dredd and the next Bond. Fan-bloody-tastic!

@SetGecko actually, the whole point is, "We have a live action movie of all the characters together.. just like you always dreamed of seeing on the big screen."

I read both Marvel and DC.

You want to really look at facts: Dc were the first to start really good live action movies (Supermans and Batmans).. Marvel just stuck with TV... and with the exception of the Hulk TV show, their live action TV was crap.

I was VERY excited to see them finally doing big screen stuff. From the Spidermans to the recent ones.

I keep waiting for DC to match them now: A live action Justice League movie that kicks ass.

Without the Batman movies, DC are not really stepping up to meet what is happening. Marvel finally did. I want BOTH sides to put out great stuff.

DC versus Marvel has never really been in my mind. Good live action movies is what I want. Have since I was a kid.

To see the Avengers on screen will be a dream come true. BUT, I want to see Justice League too!!

RealGothamite - 2/14/2012, 6:03 AM
Can't wait for this movie, the last two Batman movies have been epic!

The Dark Knight Rises is gonna be the movie to define the franchise!

"I just learned grifs polls actually work.-Morty

Hey! That's way too much information.
RealGothamite - 2/14/2012, 6:22 AM
I'm in serious need of another trailer for this movie!

Supersonicboobs - 2/14/2012, 6:29 AM
Awesome,it'll be epic!......but why they didn't ask her about "Man of Steel!"..we are barely getting info on that!
theblaze - 2/14/2012, 6:44 AM

"You never quite know where you are with her.” Yep, sounds like our Catwoman all right.. :)
Comix - 2/14/2012, 6:56 AM

Fonts are viewing just fine and normal for me.
xXkryptoniteXx - 2/14/2012, 10:45 AM

That is true but incredible hulk was IMO better then thor, captain america and iron man 2 but xmen first class was a better film overall then the others IMO. I think the new spiderman well hit the mark as a film.
xXkryptoniteXx - 2/14/2012, 10:46 AM
In the avengers that's the look that hulk should be not that ugly looking hulk in the last, still the incredible hulk was a sweet movie.
Nubase - 2/14/2012, 10:47 AM

l so agree with you

Even if the avengers turns out to be a failure the marvel fans will still say its the best and dc fans vice versa with the dark knight rises

The only advantage with the dark knight rises is Nolan, he is a fantastic movie director and storyteller, his other movies which are not CBM's which alot of people seem to forget are also great movies like inception, the prestige and memento and they all deliver.

For me l know that tdkr will be a cool movie simply because of this.

With Avengers, all l am seeing is moneyshots from the trailers, they have already showed us a scene with all of them together on screen, which l think is a huge mistake cos now l'm not exicted anymore by this, they should have kept that scene out of the trailers.

The avengers has a lot more to prove than then tdkr and everyone is hoping that it delivers

Hathaway, at least in the trailer, and in every other role she's done, exudes absolutely zero sensuality.

Not interested in her Catwoman at all.

The Bat is going to get broken physically and mentally. Cant [frick]ing wait!
NightForce - 2/14/2012, 11:46 AM
@Supes17, "Don't you mean Transformers 4 with Marvel characters?"
I don't really understand statements like this. So any film with explosions in it is automatically a Michael Bay movie? Has he copyrighted the use of explosions or something?
batfan175 - 2/14/2012, 12:25 PM
I hear rumours about scarecrow's fear gas making bane look huge to batman at some point; if that's what happens that would be a great twist and it would please the idiots who've been complaining about Tom hardy's bane from day one.
Gnyah123 - 2/14/2012, 8:03 PM
that rumor about the fear gas making bane look bigger n badder to batman is true i read it sumwhere
said it was true but cus be wrong
imapepper23 - 2/19/2012, 2:26 PM
I don't remember but were people complaining about juggernaut in X3??? Can someone help me out on that one??
