Batman The Dark Knight Rises | The Legend Ends

Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the comic book hero, Batman has been well received and has quickly become the most successful Batman franchise in Hollywood history. Schumacher and Tim Burton have both previously tried their hand at creating a Batman that audiences can relate to by casting George Clooney and Michael Keaton. However, both attempts failed to make a good impression.

Batman the Dark Knight Rises is the third and final instalment of the Nolan adaptation with promotional posters detailing ‘The Legend Ends’. Although it has been promoted as the final instalment, there are talks of another film that will tie in with a Justice League plot.
A small number of Batman fanatics who watched an advance screening of The Dark Knight Rises have been expressing their enthusiasm for the film, but are restricted when it comes to publicising their review. Reviews of the Batman the Dark Knight Rises film cannot be made public until the day before 20th July release date. According to The Guardian, the film has received ‘standing ovations’ at the advance preview with one fan, Tom McAuliffe stating: “So much awesome...Can’t wait to see it again. And again.”

Christian Bale has been talking about the cast and British director, Christopher Nolan in the lead up to the Batman the Dark Knight Rises premier. In a report by the Daily Record Christian Bale admitted that the conclusion of the Batman franchise has left an ambivalent aftertaste, commenting: “It’s bittersweet. I wasn’t sure Chris was going to make a third one. It’s meant a great deal in my life and it had been important but Chris has been so inspirational on each of the movies and he’s saying that it’s time to say goodbye.”

Tom Hardy is the latest villain to come to our screens and will be playing ‘the man who broke the Bat’, Bane. Talking about Hardy’s work and character, Bale was full of praise: “Tom is a phenomenal actor and I think having a mask over most of your face is a terrific hurdle. But he’s got such wonderful eyes and he can give expression through that.”

Catwoman is another character that will be introduced in Batman the Dark Knight Rises played by Anne Hathaway. Following in the footsteps of Michelle Pfeiffer and Lee Meriwether, Hathaway had some impressive boots to fill. Bale said: “Anne did a really great job, she sort of incorporated herself into Chris’s world of Batman – and very quickly. She did that for the first time when we did a reading for it."

We could all see that she could speak through the costume, which can be a tricky thing. You can look like a bunch of idiots just walking around with silly ears and a rubber suit. She concentrated on how she felt inside the suit rather than being self-conscious about how she looked.”

The film premiere will be coming to cinema screens including the prestigious IMAX theatre on 20th July, with the Leicester Square premier and red carpet appearances taking place on 18th July.
