Dark Knight Rises Movie

Updated on March 5, 2013

Dark Knight Rises - Christoper Nolan

Christopher Nolan is back with the third installment of Batman. This third (and final? episode of Batman Trilogy to be called, aptly enough, Batman Rises

Christopher Nolan is once again acting as a triple threat for this movie. He is acting as writer/director/producer and early indications are that this movie should be as ground-breaking/ original and entertaining as the first two epics Nolan created: Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

If there is one thing that Nolan has shown over the past few years is that the man knows how to make good movies. As all his previous films have shown, fans will be in for a treat with what he says will be his last Batman film

Thomas Hardy as Bane

New Batman Movie Cast

Thomas Hardy: Bane

Thomas Hardy, who was one of the stars in Christopher Nolan's last movie, "Inception" is cast as one of the main criminals in the newest Batman movie.

Hardy plays Bane, an incredibly powerful super-villain who actually broke Batman's back int he comic-book series. In addition to the character he played in Inception, Hardy is a talented actor who also played a wild and powerful killer in the British indie film, Bronson. Based on the size and power of bane it is more likely that his character may be more like that from Bronson than his urbane character in Inception

This movie is going to be so good!

If Dark Knight Rises is nearly as visually stunning as the previous installments, I cannot wait to watch this again and again on my Kindle Fire Tablet Why can't it be 2012 already?

Joseph Gordon Levitt

Dark Knight RIses Cast

Joseph Gordon Levitt- John Blake

Gordon-Levitt plays a beat cop, called John Blake who is assigned to a special detail by the police commissioner, where it is assumed he will be somehow working with Batman. The exact details are still a little bit sketchy on what the role for Gordon-Levitt will be.

At one point it was assumed that Gordon-Levitt was set to be a bad guy. Perhaps being cast for the role of the Riddler. It could perhaps be true that his role will expand into either a friendly superhero or a super villain for future episodes.

      @Vantis: I did have a better opinion of Rises than you. I thought it was pretty good, but mostly because of Robin and Catwoman. Not because of Bane. I would also have liked to see the riddler, but after the tour de force that was the 2nd movie, the character is just too similar. Maybe Solomon Gundy or the Penguin would have been better.

      The second Nolan Batman was the greatest one. I think this third one was made only to have a fortune from the greatness of its predecessor. In other words, The Dark Knight Rises isn't that good, at least in my opinion. The problem is Bane. Boring, sad short tongued guy, it is just like batman. The Joker was the perfect choice for villain, the riddler could have been the second great one. Bane was boring...
