This particular issue also has an interview with director Christopher Nolan and stars Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy. But don't expect any groundbreaking revelations. None of the above say anything too revealing. Christopher Nolan remained tightlipped as always, offering this statement.

"So what can I not tell you about my film?"

He did, however, talk a bit about the character of Bane.

"He represents formidable physical strength, combined with absolute evil of intention."

Tom Hardy once again chimed in on Bane's mumble core aesthetic when it comes to his unintelligible dialogue.

"It's a risk, because we could be laughed at - or it could be very fresh and exciting. The audience mustn't be too concerned about the mumbley voice. As the film progresses, I think you'll be able to tune to its setting."

Christopher Nolan also went onto describe his version of Catwoman.

"She has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about, which implies an underlying darkness."

And of course, Anne Hathaway is still going on and on about how physically demanding the role of Catwoman actually was.

"I had to physically transform. Chris sat me down at the beginning and said, 'Joseph Gordon-Levitt did all of his own fighting in Inception. That one zero-gravity fight? He trained for two months.' I basically left his office and went to the gym and just came out about five minutes ago."

For more on The Dark Knight Rises, be sure to pick up the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.

The Dark Knight Rises was released July 20th, 2012.

    @Jamie807 The costumes are not crap, the photo is crap. The people that are making the marketing for this movie, should be shot in the head, and then strangled.

                    @bawnian-dexeus Rumor it is mate :)

                    The new Superman movie and the new Batman reboot after TDKR will possible pave way for a JLA flick.

                    Remember unless GL gets a reboot then its most likely Reynolds will stayb as the Green Lantern especially that if I remember correctly he is contracted for three films.

                    As well Nolan will be producing the new Batman franchise... Do you honestly think, he would cast Reynolds in the main lead

                          @jayaottley I just read an article about Ryan Reynolds possibly taking over as Bruce for the next Batman movie. You have more pull in the industry with info, are you aware of this, is it a rumor ? I might be old but I just read it somewhere

                            @ejk1 What do you mean it's nothing?! Gosh, I hate your negative attitude, you just want the movie to fail don't you? Well nobody cares about your opinion!

                            *cries and runs home with ball, never to share with @ejk1 again*

                                          @yannick-decorte this cover doesnt really have anything to do with how the movie will be though.
