Matthew Modine On His Role In TDKR; Says His Character Is Called 'Foley'

Talking more about his role in the Christopher Nolan-directed film The Dark Knight Rises, Matthew Modine also revealed the name of the character as well as giving an odd comment about The Avengers' box office success...


Nothing better than seeing an actor promoting his own film by saying two months before the release that it will kick another film's butt at the box office. Very classy indeed (sarcasm). But, that's what Matthew Modine did in this video interview, where he also talks about his character in The Dark Knight Rises. Check it out:



Thanks to Batman-News for the heads up.

Starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard and Morgan Freeman, The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit theatres on July 20, 2012.

Didn't they announce it to be Nixon. Does this mean that JGL's character might still be Dick Grayson and not John Blake? Or Azrael?
AzBats Rises 2012.

Remember when TDK was in production, and everyone speculated about Anthony Michael Hall's role in it? Some claimed he was playing Riddler, etc. My guess is that JGL in TDKR is...John Blake, period. No surprises. Don't get me wrong, I would love for his role to end up being a surprise, but I don't think that's gonna happen.

Doesn't suck at all. We got the 8th Batman movie mate! We're looking at such a rich mythos and broad rogues gallery that you can actually reach number eight and still have a fresh story to tell.

I loved Avenegers and most of the other Marvel properties but the fact remains that they are a bit of fun, Batman is something so much more. Batman has class.

Love Marvel, love DC, not so fond of gimps.

Could it be possible? Could the cast & crew of these movies be as bad as CBM fans?
