The Dark Knight Rises On The Cover Of EW

Entertainment Weekly and The Dark Knight Rises

UPDATE (4.12.12): We’ve added the six photos from the Entertainment Weekly article to our story gallery below via Batman-News.

Entertainment Weekly‘s Summer Movie Preview issue is about to hit shelves, and gracing the cover is none-other-than The Dark Knight Rises. The cover photo is that off Christian Bale as Batman and Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle – aka Catwoman. Expect a write-up on the inside of the issue as well, but don’t expect too much. Nolan is as reluctant as ever. “So what can I not tell you about my film,” he told the magazine while on break from editing the much anticipated film.

Even so, Nolan did expand upon our first preview of Rises and shared some intel about Batman’s latest cinematic adversaries. First, there’s Bane (played by Inception alum Tom Hardy), a cunning, hulking terrorist with a menacing respirator-mask and a small army bent on sacking Gotham City. “He represents formidable physical strength, combined with absolute evil of intention,” says Nolan.

Points of discussion include where, or rather, when the story picks up, Bane and his mask, and the details surrounding the 6-minute prologue that is coming December 16th in front of select IMAX showings of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. Considering these details are being discussed by and with the approval of Christopher Nolan, I’d say their spoiler level is fairly light. But if you happen to be a person who wants to go in as fresh as possible, or you’re someone who wants to avoid set pictures of any kind, perhaps the rest of this article isn’t for you. For the everyone else, welcome. Continue reading
