Comic book heroes are gracing the covers of Entertainment Weekly and Muscle & Fitness this week!
On the cover of Muscle & Fitness, we have the Incredible Hulk doing incredibly hulk-y things. The cover also points to numerous articles in the magazine that can help some of y’all become a little less twiggy and a little more Hulk.
On the cover of the summer preview issue of Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got Catwoman and Batman as portrayed by Anne Hathaway and Christian Bale. Inside the issue, there are also a few tidbits about the film – nothing too revealing, though.
Christopher Nolan talking about Bane:
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 on why Bane’s talking is all weird:
“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.”
And Anne Hathaway about the intense training and shit she had to do:
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.
