The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, which becomes available this Friday, features Batman from The Dark Knight Rises.
Not only that, but the issue will feature a preview of Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman installment including Nolan addressing the problem of understanding Bane’s voice.
EW offered up the following teaser:
“Like the fact that the new movie returns to The Batcave (M.I.A. during The Dark Knight, as Wayne Manor was still being rebuilt following the events of Batman Begins), or that Rises takes places eight years after The Dark Knight. In fact, fans may want to revisit that second film, as Nolan tells EW that the last chapter of his cinematic saga explores the ramifications of The Dark Knight’s chilling climax, in which Batman and super-cop Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) hatch a conspiracy to cover up the sins of Gotham City’s so-called “white knight,” the late Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face (Aaron Eckhart). Nolan also discusses the potential political subtext of Rises and addresses the burning question many fans have about Bane’s mask-muffled voice: Are we going to be able to understand the guy? “I think when people see the film, things will come into focus,” says the director. “Bane is very complex and very interesting and when people see the finished film people will be very entertained by him.”
The special “Forecast” issue of Entertainment Weekly goes on sale Friday, January 13th. Check back to Cosmic Book News for more when the issue comes out.
