Batman (Christian Bale) palms a piece of Bat technology (the BatPad?) in front of a mass of police cars in the street. Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) may have ostensibly closed up shop eight years ago (in the movie’s timeline), but Batman can never go too long without his gadgets.

The always debonair Bruce Wayne dances with Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) at a lavish masquerade ball. Director Christopher Nolan’s interpretation of Kyle is an enigma, perhaps even to Hathaway herself. ”Who is Selina Kyle?” asks Hathaway cryptically. ”She’s someone who wants you to think you can answer that question.”

In his casual monogrammed dressing gown, Bruce Wayne consults technology guru Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), the man behind Batman’s toy chest of utility goodies. Fox is one of Wayne’s only real allies and tries to revive Wayne’s spirits as he physically and emotionally recovers from his face-offs with the Joker and Harvey Dent.

Bane’s secretly motivated reign of terror extends throughout Gotham’s financial district, as evidenced by his visit to what looks like a stock exchange on what has to be the worst Monday morning ever. Says Hardy: ”There is a very meticulous and calculated way about Bane. There is a huge orchestration of organization to his ambition.”

Anne Hathaway may look at home in Selina Kyle’s high-society thief get-up (for today’s modern anti-heroine on the go!), but when director Nolan first asked to meet her, Hathaway assumed she would be going in for the role of Harley Quinn, the Joker’s villainess sidekick. ”About an hour into the meeting he said, ‘It’s Catwoman,’ and I went, ‘Oh, no, I played this wrong,”’ she says. ”I didn’t think they would revisit that character, because Michelle’s performance had been so iconic. But Chris just does his own thing.”

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.
