Batman : The Dark Knigh Rises is pushing pretty hard on the PR leaks. This is no mistake, they want to build up the hype for the last movie of the Nolan Batman series. So, let’s get started with the character that has been getting the most buzz recently, Catwoman.
After an interestingly confrontational interview with MTV on the negative/positive feedback from the outfit reveal, a source gives the Daily Mail a positive appeal to fans that this new Catwoman’s will be the sexiest we’ve ever seen. Here an excerpt of their report:
“…Meanwhile, Anne, who changed into a pale yellow dress for the film’s[One Day] after-party, is taking the transformation into Catwoman pretty seriously. The actress, who follows both Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, is said to have been putting in some intense preparation for the role. A source told the Mail: ‘Anne is working out five days a week. She’s taking it very seriously and wants her body in tip-top condition. ‘Secretly she hopes to upstage Halle Berry, who last played Catwoman. She’s doing dance classes, weight-training and cardio – she wants to be the sexiest Catwoman ever.”
To just put in my two cents, I think that with the current footage released of the stunt double in action, it won’t be hard for Hathaway to beat Halle Berry , ‘cause no offense, but Halle Berry was just a woman in a bondage outfit. I always call that Catwoman rendition, “She who shall not be named.” Secondly, if you notice they do not mention her outshining Michelle Pheifer. (hehe ‘cause she can’t) Anyways, below is some youtube footage of the stunt double in action, along with some clearer shots of the outfit. No offense Hathaway, but it’s just a rip off of Marvel’s Black Widow outfit…you can’t see any surprise hiding in that material.
Next in our roundup is Bane and Talia Al Ghul aka Miranda Tate, and we catch up with them on set. Our muscly villain, Bane, has some clear photos that really give you good details of how creppy/awesome he looks. We also have some youtube footage of the Banemobiles running around town.
Then there is footage of Talia Al Ghul/ Miranda Tate in one of the tumblrs, seen escaping above. Compared to Catwoman’s stunt double, this one looks a little…meh. While looking at these different leaks, I wondered, why the hell does everyone have a vehicle in this movie? Next thing you know there will be a Fast & Furious montage between all three characters… I really hope not. All these people getting vehicles and not using their damn legs just seems all types of lazy, but that’s just me.
Finally, to end our roundup is Bruce Wayne/ Batman puwning everyone with his Batwing. The Batwing is an hovercraft/ helicopter that Batman is using in the narrow streets to follow villains. After an accident during shooting, it isn’t quite clear whether the accident was purposely done for the film or just poor planning. It is quite clear that Batman was such a ‘dummy’ to think he could make it through those streets without an explosion or other random mishap. Speaking of explosions, below is a video of the aforementioned chase through the streets. This footage is an arial view of the Batwing’s explosive accident in the streets of Pittsburgh.
Here is a closeup where you can obviously tell that Batman is a Doll, and not a person.
Well, I know that is a lot of info to process, but after you Batman fans finishing sifting through all this info tell us what you think about the direction the film is taking, and what scenes you’re looking forward to.
