We haven’t had any updates from The Dark Knight Rises in a little while, but prepare to get excited all over again, as Entertainment Weekly have a new image of the batsuit slapped across the cover of their latest issue.
The new suit looks even more robust than the last two, with lots of individual plates of armour making Christian Bale’s physique look yet more imposing than it does ordinarily.
The utility belt also looks more souped up than ever before, with Lucius Fox clearly having been hard at work kitting it out with a new batch of gadgets and gizmos. All in all, it’s a strong look for the Dark Knight.
Meanwhile, Chris Nolan has been discussing the pressure of delivering the final film that everyone is hoping for.
“I can tell you the truth because I’m done with it,” begins Nolan. “I felt immense pressure! And I think it’s a good pressure, because you owe it to the films — and the people’s expectations — to make great work.”
And when asked about the recent controversy over Bane’s indistinct dialogue, Nolan was quick to reassure fans that all will fall into place once the finished film arrives.
“I think when people see the film, things will come into focus,” continued the director. “Bane is very complex and very interesting and when people see the finished film people will be very entertained by him.” The Dark Knight Rises opens on 20 July 2012.
