The director and star of The Dark Knight Rises reveal new film details
Nolan and Hardy talk about the hotly awaited new Batman movie and the challenge that faces Batman

In the fact that he has a result-based and oriented fighting style. It’s not about fighting. it’s about carnage

Empire Magazine has revealed exclusive details of the highly anticipated Batman movie, The Dark Night Rises, and finds out how the cowl wearer will face his most savage, fierce and ferocious enemy yet.

The magazine has exclusive pictures of Christian Bale as Batman and Tom Hardy as his hulking nemesis Bane and it also features plot and character details from director Christopher Nolan and Hardy.

Nolan
has revealed that the new film will take place eight years after the end of The Dark Knight. He said that the latest and last installment in the franchise is “really all about finishing Batman and Bruce Wayne’s story.”

And as the film is nearly a decade on from The Dark Knight, Nolan says: “He’s an older bruce Wayne; he’s not in a great state.”

Hardy said about the muscular and vicious Bane: “He’s brutal. Brutal. He’s a big dude who’s incredibly clinical, in the fact that he has a result-based and oriented fighting style. 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 ribcages, stamping on shins and knees and necks and collarbones and snapping heads off and tearing his fists through chests, ripping out spinal columns. He is a terrorist in mentality as well as brutal action.”

Nolan sees Bane as “a challenge [Batman] hasn’t had before” and that this outing tests “Batman both physically as well as mentally,”

The Dark Knight Rises will be released on July 20, 2012.
