The magazine that the Caped Crusader refers to is new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which starts off with a photo of Christian Bale in the batsuit. In the issue, currently being teased online, Christopher Nolan chimes in on the public griping about Tom Hardy's Bane voice, saying, “I think when people see the film, things will come into focus. Bane is very complex and very interesting and when people see the finished film people will be very entertained by him.”
UPDATE: Two more images have also sauntered online, so let's add those the the Bat-party below.
Is it just me, or does it sort of look like Batman and Bane might kiss here? Is that the super-secret ending to his trilogy that Nolan has been guarding for so long now?
At this point, we've already paid way, way too much attention to The Dark Knight Rises, and the movie is still more than seven months away. Not saying I'm any less excited for it than you are, but in our seemingly boundless enthusiasm, we're not doing the film itself any favors. Anyways, I'm a peddler of the hype, so this is like a dealer telling his buyers to kick their smack habit. The movie, as you're already aware, stars Bale, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman, and Juno Temple.
July 20th. That's when Batman will finally be able to enjoy his bath salts and his battered, twice-read copy of Twilight.
