Concept Art by Romek Delmata




















It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

The Dark Knight Rises was directed by Christopher Nolan, from a screenplay written by Christopher and Jonathan Nolan. The cast included: Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John "Robin" Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate/Talia al Ghul.

Great art! Really liked the "breaking ice" logo they used in the movie.
unknownfacts - 12/7/2013, 2:05 PM
Great art work.

this was the spider-man 3 of the previous batman canon: fun but terrible. if mos' sequel is good, we'll soon forget it even existed
nowtheresaBATman - 12/7/2013, 2:34 PM
Bale's still kicking ass....Out of the Furnace is awesome & American Hustle looks great.

plus

Knight of Cups
Untitled Terrence Malick Project (check out this cast)
Exodus (he's already played Jesus, now he's giving Moses a shot)
Creed of Violence (totally stoked that he's rumored for this)
SauronsBANE1 - 12/7/2013, 2:36 PM
Comparing this to Spider-Man 3? Yeah...no. Definitely the weakest of the trilogy, but not even close to 'terrible.' At least the Dark Knight Rises was controversial and divisive. That means a large chunk of the audience really enjoyed it. No one can even say that about Spider-Man 3, since almost everyone collectively hated it. Apples to oranges.

As for the concept art, they made the right choice with the final designs. My only complaint is that they could've made the prison look and feel more like the 'hell on earth' they kept describing it as. There's perfectly logical reasons for why it was the way it was in the movie if you think hard enough, but it's just what I would personally prefer. Awesome find, Nailbiter!
MCUfan1 - 12/7/2013, 2:48 PM
I think if jonathon didnt write this film would've been superb but is was great tho.
deadpool2009 - 12/7/2013, 2:53 PM
Loved Bane.
Bruce fully recovers after being lame?
Shouldn't have just been a trilogy.
Robin LOL no no no
deadpool2009 - 12/7/2013, 2:55 PM

^FFS whatever it's Month Day Year.

GuardianAngel - 12/7/2013, 3:09 PM
I'm glad we got an awesome Batman for almost 10 years. Now cue the terrible DCCU!

I don't remember this in the movie.

GenerationX - 12/7/2013, 4:16 PM
Way to go deleting a negative comment man...we can't have a negative opinion? Must we love everything you post? As I said earlier, does anybody care anymore? The movie is done and over...next
MercSoul - 12/7/2013, 4:54 PM
i read the comments and i just found:
-"awesome trilogy"
-"a good trilogy"

and im like


i mean, the movie sucks, too many plot holes, a lame history, a "friendzone" bane, the worst dead ever (thalia), etc, etc,

nolan lovers everywhere dude D:

i liked begins, TDK was good for Ledger and some actions sequences but we never saw the "detective" that batman is, but in tdkr? they screw everything man! D:
TheBaroness89 - 12/7/2013, 5:40 PM
Batman was in this movie ? Could've fooled me.
TheBaroness89 - 12/7/2013, 5:42 PM
Movie was about a crippled old shit and the stupidest revenge story since Parallax in Green Lantern. Bane was cool though Tom Hardy rocks.
antoineflemming - 12/7/2013, 6:05 PM
Uh, Anno, Joker's hair IS brown. He DYES it when he's in "Joker Mode". In the first scene, he WAS kinda trying to look like ALL THE OTHER GUYS. Sure, when he takes the mask off, it might have been green then, but that's not so much of a plot hole.

None of that trilogy had the detective Batman, but those movies were still pretty good. TDKR was the weakest of them (and I hated Blake lol), but it was still pretty good IMO. Better third movie than Spider-man 3 or IM3 to me.
MercSoul - 12/7/2013, 6:35 PM
@AnnoDomini have you at least seen the film? bruce was in a jail on the other side of the world and he is in gotham the same night, and he was poor and if they see a plane close to gotham they detonated the bomb (sorry my english).

Batman took the time to make a batman symbol on a building....he couldnt usse that time in a more productive form to save the city?

he dont beat anybody in the film

he is the worst detective ever

he gets information of the plot from an HALLUCINATION!

he should be death after the first fall in the prison...i mean, nolan was trying to make it "realistic" no?


TheBaroness89 - 12/7/2013, 6:43 PM
It was "realistic" realistically dumb and riddled with plot holes but its done and gone. Snyder will give us a great version of Batman- I have faith.
patrat18 - 12/7/2013, 6:59 PM
MercSoul - Facepalm you fool.
SauronsBANE1 - 12/7/2013, 7:03 PM
Some of you guys are ridiculous. What's "realistic" about Bane? Or Two-Face? Or almost anything that happens in the trilogy? It's so overblown that Nolan was trying to make everything "realistic."

No, Bruce didn't show up in Gotham after being in the prison in the span of a day. Did you watch the movie? It's obvious that a significant amount of time passed.

Yes, it makes no logical sense to make that big Batman symbol. But guess what? That was the point! The whole trilogy is about symbols! About themes. About making a statement. There was no bigger statement made in the entire trilogy than that symbol on that bridge.

"He don't beat anybody in the film." Right. Wanna back that up with some evidence?

"He is the worst detective ever." Because figuring out that Catwoman was dusting his safe for his own fingerprints involved no detective work. Or figuring out that thumbprint from that shattered bullet in the previous movie. Or any of the dozen things he does in this movie. Sure, buddy.

The hallucination? He gets mis-information. There was literally nothing wrong with that scene. He doesn't get any "information" that he doesn't think he knows already.

You guys are ridiculous.
MercSoul - 12/7/2013, 7:17 PM
ok maybey i was wrong with the dates of when he returned, but its true that he get info from the hallucination, bruce only knews that "a child scapes" and he tought that it was bane, but the hallucination told him that was thalia, and its true that he dont really beat nobody besides regular guys, i mean, yeah he punch bane, buy was catwoman who beat him, and was the accident who beat thalia so...
SauronsBANE1 - 12/7/2013, 7:20 PM
bruce only knews that "a child scapes" and he tought that it was bane, but the hallucination told him that was thalia"

I'm fully convinced you haven't seen this movie since it came out. 100% convinced. Watch the movie again, you're completely wrong, buddy. That never happens. Ra's doesn't "tell" Bruce anything he doesn't already think he knows.
MercSoul - 12/7/2013, 7:21 PM
and bane was a regular guy with the a mask that help him to breath, that is reallistic, two-face is just a guy with his face burned, thats reallistic too....well...with the exception that we are able to see part of the skull, joker, just a guy with scars and menthal issues, (srry my english is....limited, i just wanted to say that he was insane...(thats is how its says right?)) scarecrow a guy that drug people, everything can be real of this, that's why i say realistic

if nolan wasnt doing this he could put venom on the film without a freaking problem
SauronsBANE1 - 12/7/2013, 7:22 PM
If Ra's "told" Bruce that it was Talia who escaped, then why did Bruce react so surprised in his final fight with Bane?

Bruce beats up Bane, tells him something along the lines of "You escaped from that prison, and you didn't think I could find the will to escape too?" Bane says "I never escaped" and Bruce says, "But the child..." then gets stabbed by Talia who tells him what really happened.
MercSoul - 12/7/2013, 7:25 PM
damn freaking traduction of movies, yeah you right srry in the spanish version its says thalia but in the original it says bane, srry, it wasnt my fault
SauronsBANE1 - 12/7/2013, 7:26 PM
No offense MercSoul, but nothing is realistic about a huge guy walking around with a face-mask to keep his pain away (the mask wasn't there to help him breath, it was to dull his constant pain), there's literally nothing realistic about a guy walking around with only half his face burned away, there's nothing realistic about a guy drugging people with a fear-toxin. The only somewhat realistic person there is the Joker. That's it.
JangoKnight - 12/7/2013, 7:31 PM
This makes me wanna watch this movie again! Great stuff!
MightyZeus - 12/7/2013, 8:07 PM
Amazing concept art. Looks great.
I only just watched this movie a few days ago. With each viewing it gets better and better.
CaptainProg - 12/7/2013, 8:55 PM
Meh this movie wasn't that great. Can't wait for the new batman!
GenerationX - 12/7/2013, 10:20 PM
I guess you do have to kiss Nail's ass. He gets butthurt if you dislike any of his articles. I'd say the same if people were bringing up crap about Man of Steel years after it has came out....get over it
Conaan - 12/7/2013, 10:31 PM
great movie.

The only thing I didn't like about Rises was that they never explained why Bane had super human strength. Pain numbing inhalants can't make a person able to break handcuffs or punch through concrete pillars without injury.
CaptainComicBook - 12/7/2013, 10:40 PM
Not enough Batman in my opinion. Too much other stuff.
CaptainComicBook - 12/7/2013, 10:41 PM
DC fanboys jump all over IM3 for not having enough Iron Man but ignore that logic when it comes to TDKR.
Asterisk - 12/7/2013, 10:52 PM
