08 - The Christopher Nolan's Batman

We compare these films to Citizen Kane and The Godfather. We commend its depth, its politicization and adult seriousness. Not spent two years and have noticed the holes in logic and screenplay for The Dark Knight Rises, the mischaracterization of the characters, without claim limits. Later, the trilogy of Christopher Nolan went down in history as a kind of progressive rock hero movies: threw open the doors of the future in his time, and became as old as the future always becomes outdated.

Hollywood also accommodates Mr. Nolan’s passion for secrecy. In early 2012, just after the holidays ended, a group of Warner’s top movie executives gathered for an emergency meeting because Mr. Nolan was upset.

The filmmaker had told executives he wanted them to find and punish the person who had talked to the Hollywood Reporter magazine about his plans to alter the sound mix on “The Dark Knight Rises” after audiences had a difficult time understanding actor Tom Hardy’s Bane character in a preview, according to several people with knowledge of the matter.

The executives, who had already traded frantic phone calls while the studio was closed between Christmas and New Year’s, concluded it would be impossible to find the source. It took weeks until the issue was resolved with Mr. Nolan and his wife and producing partner, Emma Thomas, recalled the knowledgeable people.

“Anything touching Chris Nolan is treated at the most heightened level,” said one Warner Bros. employee.

lol. I gotta say though, the prologue still sounds awful. The rest of the movie wasn't changed so I dunno why he felt that bad of a need to change that one scene.

Bale's wife was a stunt driver on TDKR. Chased him in a cop car in a scene.
“My wife was a stunt driver — she was chasing me through the city in Batman. She was driving one of the cop cars. She can do 180s and stunts and all that,” says the British actor. “She terrifies me. My wife terrifies me.”
