The recent issue of Total Film has done a cover story on “The Dark Knight Rises” and in it caught a couple of words from Tom Hardy about Bane’s mask and how it’s actually more comfortable than it looks.
“It’s not as bad as you might think. You just put it on. Work out where you drool goes. That’s it. Mask work is good fun. This one wasn’t painful; there was the stunt mask and there was the up-close on for the sexy glam shots.”
Chris Nolan also talked a bit about rounding out the trilogy – “Our telling of the Batman legend has always been centered on Bruce Wayne’s story. We somewhat left the audience hanging at the end of the last film in terms of Bruce’s story and we want to bring it full circle and have a complete tale. We’ve a great ending we’ve been wanting to tell for some years now. We’re just thrilled to have been able to bring our story around to its conclusion.”
The brutality of the film is said to exceed the last one. That’s fitting as the theme of this outing is said to be ‘pain’ unlike “Batman Begins” which was ‘fear’ and “The Dark Knight” which was ‘chaos’. Meanwhile some new photos have gone online which you can check out by clicking below:
