Six new images from The Dark Knight Rises featuring bats, cats, bane, and JGL

Apr. 12, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Yesterday we showed the cover for Entertainment Weekly's summer movie preview, featuring Batman and Catwoman, respectively, and now we have some high res scans from the article.  Most of these images we've seen in some form before with the exception of Bane in his green jumpsuit.  I guess it's good to see he'll have some sort of costume change from his muscle shirt and pimp coat. 

As my excitement level starts to transistion from movie to movie throughout the summer, I think THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will be sliding into first on my hype-o-meter, sitting safely alongside PROMETHEUS.  No word yet on a new trailer, but I'm sure it's forthcoming, hopefully in a month or so.  Keep your eyes peeled.

Here's the images:

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES opens on July 20, 2012

Extra Tidbit: Watching the six-minute prologue really made me want to see Nolan tackle a straight action film next. He's primed for it.

God, I am going to miss this franchise when its over. Nothing gets me as excited as I was as a kid than looking forward to a new Nolan Batman film.

meh...Other than name association there's nothing really here that has me hyped for seeing this film. Unlike the rest of the sheeple, I don't see Hathaway as CatWoman, seriously let's grow up a bit; there's nothing sexy about her outfit nor is it practical or that concealing of her identity. Also Im not really picking up on the vibe of Nolan really putting much effort in upping the ante as he did with Dark Knight in comparison to Batman Begins. It just seems rushed, much like Spiderman 3 -

Well Catwoman's looking better, too bad I don't care much for Catwoman...
Bu Bane's looking worst and worst.

This is far from a look-alike sequel to Batman and Robin. Nolan's Batman is obviously grittier in tone and on every level of emotional storytelling. We all know that The Joker can never be replaced, but Bane will add so much to the physical challenge to Batman. And for Catwoman, she looks great. We will have to judge when we see the movie.

The Joker was so much better

As good as Heath Ledger was visually as The Joker, that's how bad Anne Hathaway is as Catwoman. Sorry but I just can't get past it. Not my fault! She makes the whole affair look like a sequel to Batman and Robin. And the relative dullness of Bane (there isn't an iota of mystery or intrigue around either of these villains) doesn't help. Hopefully Nolan's skills as a filmmaker will elevate this movie beyond these initial pics.

Catwoman actually cracking a safe.

But, but she's supposed to be a zombie cat lady with nine lives who eats birds and licks herself. I sawr it in a movie once so it has to be right, right?

Batman with an Ipad and Bane doing his thang on the floor of the stock market? What's not to like. My only criticism thus far is one that I've had with every catwoman and that is; how can any of her movements be taken seriously while wearing heels like that?

This looks great but I still don't like Anne Hathaway for the part of Selina Kyle/ Catwoman. She doesn't strike me as dangerous or sultry. At all. The rest of the cast is spot on.

Tidbit:

He may very well can, doesn't mean he should. Admit it, do we REALLY want a straight-forward action movie from Nolan? Not when so many other talented directors can do the same thing. But as there's only one Hitchcock, or Speilberg, or Terantino, there's only one Nolan. With him, we ALWAYS want some thing....a bit different.

that first pic kinda makes me think of the batman returns scene where bruce and selena figure out who the other is.

I like the idea of Bane attacking what seems to be the stock exchange. The whole "occupy" thing could be really cool, and it's something Christopher Nolan will probably handle quite well.

Maybe I'm easy but I love every single goddamn thing I've seen in this movie so far. That's Nolan.

I like this Bane, from the pictures and trailers we have seen, he seems like he could physically beat the shit out of Batman, something we haven't seen yet in Nolan's trilogy.
