Every year seems to be the year of sequels but the quality and uniqueness to each Batman movie made by director Christoper Nolan seems to promise that the third, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will feel just as original and non-formulaic.
The fact that THE DARK KNIGHT reached such high box office success puts a level of expectation and excitement on the upcoming film that any bit of new information before the July release will be gobbled up in a feeding frenzy.
Thus it was a must to share a few images that were in Empire Magazine that have hit the web recently. The first being Christian Bale's Batman riding the Batpod and the second Tom Hardy as Bane with his head down.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES into theaters on July 20, 2012.
