Exclusive: The Dark Knight Rises Described As Better Than The Dark Knight


1545 Last month, Christopher Nolan screened a rough cut of The Dark Knight Rises for Warner Bros. which was received with a standing ovation.

Our source for inside info on The Dark Knight Rises has provided us with the following reaction.

Again we can't confirm the information, all we can offer is that the source has provided us with past news and rumors that have panned out. Just yesterday we were provided with news on the Man of Steel trailer.

Previously, our source provided more info on The Dark Knight Rises including trailer related spoilers; Batcave, Batwing, Plot and moreBatman, Robin, Bane, Plot and moreMatthew Modine's Character NixonSynopsis Revealed; Joseph Gordon-Levitt's RoleDescription of Batcave.

4/24/12 Update 9:24pm ET: We have also been provided information on the Cinemacon footage (Spoilers) about Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Commission Gordon and Bane.

Here is what we've been told. Note: The last line may contain a mild spoiler.

One of my friends has seen a rough cut of The Dark Knight Rises and my god he was astonished. He says it is better than The Dark Knight and that it is virtually a flawless movie. 

He said that could change when the CGI shots are completed, and the movie is seen in full instead of grey blocks on the screen.

It is one of those films that leaves you on the edge of your seat much like The Dark Knight did, in that it feels like a rollercoaster, like you have no idea where the story will go. I have been told a summary of the movie, and I definitely don't want to spoil it, but if you think you know where it is heading, think again!

It will leave you thinking "how do did they come up with that; it's genius." 

Catwoman is more in line with the comics than people think despite her not having a whip or cowl.

It's more character driven and less about looks. Bane is so frickin' ruthless it's bad, like Joker is crazy and does his crimes on a whim in any style; Bane is like a freight train and has the city bricking it.

After The Dark Knight credits, Batman was still active for a while, and when crime could be handled by the Gotham PD alone, he retired. During this period, Wayne Manor was complete along with the batcave, and he kept his stuff in their and just lived as Bruce Wayne mourning Rachel's death until Bane and Catwoman arrive in Gotham and cause mayhem.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th, 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christian Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred, Juno Temple and Josh Pence as a young Ra's al Ghul.
