News: Entertainment Weekly The Dark Knight Rises Cover

Things have been very quiet on The Dark Knight Rises front for a while now. The Avengers imminent release is dominating everything at the moment, and even Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has seen the slow drip of promo material become a flood in recent weeks. Entertainment Weekly has its summer preview and The Dark Knight Rises takes the cover. Does this finally signal a break from cover for the biggest film of the summer?

Tom Hardy has some very interesting things to say about the controversy surrounding Bane’s voice – “It’s a risk, because we could be laughed at — or it could be very fresh and exciting.” He goes on to allay a lot of the fears by saying – “The audience mustn’t be too concerned about the mumbly voice.  As the film progresses, I think you’ll be able to tune to its setting.” Hardy also cites  the influence for Bane’s unique dialect  as “a desire to honor the character’s brains and Caribbean heritage.”

EW goes on to describe Catwoman (Anne Hathaway)  as ” far from the “campy sexpot” of some other incarnations, but more along the lines of “a shifty cipher, calloused survivor, and world-class criminal.”” Christopher Nolan says of his Cat – “She has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about, which implies an underlying darkness.”

Personally I love the look of this new Catwoman/Selina Kyle and the descriptions by cast and crew of her character seem to point to an interesting and potentially unique take on the classic role.

With The Avengers so close to release, now would be the perfect time for Warner Bros. to launch the final trailer for The Dark Knight Rises and kick off a campaign that’ll steal a bit of Marvel’s thunder. We can but hope.

The Dark Knight Rises will crush all before it when it is released here in the UK on 20th July.
