Excerpts from the interviews housed within this issue of Entertainment Weekly:
Christopher Nolan talks about the villains in the film, Bane and Catwoman:
“He represents formidable physical strength, combined with absolute evil of intention.”
“She has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about, which implies an underlying darkness.”
Tom Hardy talks about Bane’s muffled voice and accent:
“It’s a risk, because we could be laughed at — or it could be very fresh and exciting,” says Hardy, adding that the voice he developed was influenced by many factors, including a desire to honor the comic book character’s brains and Caribbean heritage. “The audience mustn’t be too concerned about the mumbly voice,” says Hardy. “As the film progresses, I think you’ll be able to tune to its setting.”
Anne Hathaway talks about her physical training in preparation for portraying Catwoman:
“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.”
The Dark Knight Rises‘ cast also includes Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Stewart, Daniel Sunjata, Burn Gorman, Diego Klattenhoff, Josh Pence, Matthew Modine, Tom Conti, Joey King, Alon Aboutboul, Nestor Carbonell, Brett Cullen, and Juno Temple.
