'Dark Knight Rises' to Take Place Eight Years After 'Dark Knight'




Director Christopher Nolan reveals that Bruce Wayne is not in a great state and he has to survive a challenge he hasn't had before, i.e. a brutal and incredibly clinical Bane.

Christopher Nolan has always been keeping the plot of "The Dark Knight Rises" under very tight wraps. However, the director himself was recently willing to divulge some details of his highly anticipated superhero movie in an interview with Empire magazine. During the chat, he shared some major details about the main protagonist Bruce Wayne and the antagonist Bane.

"It's really all about finishing Batman and Bruce Wayne's story," Nolan said of his final Batman film. "We left him in a very precarious place. Perhaps surprisingly for some people, our story picks up quite a bit later, eight years after 'The Dark Knight'. So he's an older Bruce Wayne; he's not in a great state."

As for Bane, Nolan explained that the supervillain will be a tough challenge for the Caped Crusader. "With Bane, we're looking to give Batman a challenge he hasn't had before," said Nolan. "With our choice of villain and with our choice of story we're testing Batman both physically as well as mentally."

The 41-year-old filmmaker described Bane as a very brutal nemesis. "He's brutal. Brutal. He's a big dude who's incredibly clinical, in the fast that he has a result-based and oriented fighting style," he added. "It's not about fighting. It's about carnage. The style is heavy-handed, heavy-footed, it's nasty."

"Anything from small-joint manipulation to crushing skulls, crushing rib cages, stamping on shins and knees and necks and collarbones and snapping heads off and tearing his fists through chests, ripping out spinal columns," Nolan said of Tom Hardy's character. "He is a terrorist in mentality as well as brutal action."

Additionally, costume designer Lindy Hemming spilled the beans on Bane's look in the film. Explaining about the mask the character's wearing, Hemming said, "He was injured early in his story. He's suffering from pain and needs gas to survive. He can't survive the pain without the mask. The pipes from the mask go back along his jawline and feed into the thing at his back, where there are two cannisters."

"The Dark Knight Rises" will open wide in U.S. theaters on July 20, 2012. The film has wrapped principal photography in Jodhpur, India as well as Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and New York City. It also stars Christian Bale as the lead superhero, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, and Gary Oldman as James Gordon.
