For almost a year now, fans have been teased with several trailers as the release date of The Dark Knight Rises creeps up and now we have some nice new images. I have been backing off a little bit when its come to The Dark Knight Rises posts, but ‘greatness is greatness,’ a fine man once wrote and when I look at these new images of Christopher Nolan on the set, that word, greatness, comes to mind.
We also have a new image of Anne Hathaway. You know, Everyone is talking about her short hairdo at the moment, but before Anne Hathaway chopped off her long locks to film her part as Fantine in Les Misérables, she was flaunting a cascade of brunette locks to play Catwoman.
Commenting on Anne’s character, who is also known as Selena Kyle, Nolan said she represents an ‘underlying’ sense of darkness in the film. He told Entertainment Weekly last month, ‘She has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about.’ Anne’s appearance differs somewhat to the stars who have played the supervillain before her, in a good way, and that is why I think it will work.
Which brings me back to Nolan, who was the monarch of this story. He made some tough decisions as it turns out. He fought the studio for Bane over The Riddler and won. Then he petrified himself with the idea of cat woman. Yet, he went with his gut and went for it anyway. On a Momento DVD commentary he said that’s one of his greatest strengths. Which tells going with his gut is common practice for him on a film set and we all know how his other films have turned out. The Dark Knight Rises should be no different. Check out all the new Images in the gallery.
