Christopher Nolan Talks John Blake Importance In THE DARK KNIGHT RISES And More
Speaking to MTV, Nolan talks about the new characters(mainly John Blake) that make their introduction in The Dark knight Rises and how they are an important factor in the upcoming film. Watch the video after the jump...
Some of the transcript that can be heard in the video:
"I think Gordon looks at [Blake] and sees himself from 20 years before. There's something very moving about that. It lets you contrast these wise old souls, these guys who are burdened and jaded with the events of the past film, with this youthful idealism, these breaths of fresh air. You're dealing with a story that very specifically picks up eight years after the events of the last film. Time has moved on, but our protagonists haven't. Bruce Wayne has shut himself away in self-imposed exile. He's hung up the cape and cowl, but he hasn't moved on. The characters around him are trying to support him in whatever he's doing, but they're somewhat frozen."
The Dark Knight Rises is directed by Christopher Nolan(The Prestige, Inception) and stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, and Anne Hathaway. The film will be unleashed upon audiences on the 20th of this month.
