Christopher Nolan And THE DARK KNIGHT RISES To Appear At This Year's San Diego Comic Con?
Rumour has it that Christopher Nolan will appear at Comic Con this year and that The Dark Knight Rises will also be screened. Hit the jump for details.
According to Best Movies Ever News, Christopher Nolan will be making his first appearance at the San Diego Comic Con later this year in order to promote his third and final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. According to their "sources" at Warner Bros., the studio plan on capitalizing on the huge amount of anticipation surrounding the threequel with both a panel and screening of the film (similar perhaps to the premiere of Cowboys & Aliens last year).
In the words of their apparent source at the studio, "Warner Bros was hoping that Chris would take advantage of Comic Con 2012 since he’s never been so it looks like they’ll be a panel with Chris, Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway. We’re not sure about Christian Bale, but since this is the final Batman movie for them, I can’t imagine him not attending...but you know how Christian can be." Another added, "Chris [Nolan] would love to keep it a surprise appearance, but in this day and age, it’s pretty impossible."
Of course, it's best to take anything like this with a pinch of salt for the time being, but perhaps most interesting is the fact that they also go on to claim that they have received the following reaction to the recent screening of The Dark Knight Rises for Warner Bros. execs. "Aside from the usual tweaks and such, the suits seem genuinely pleased and rather ecstatic with the rough cut. Everyone will probably still be wondering about the Bane voice issue, but that won’t be one." What do you guys make of all this? Sound off with your thoughts below.
