The latest issue of Empire Magazine has gone viral as images scans have been hitting the net of their feature on The Dark Knight Rises.
The latest pics are high-res versions of a couple previously seen, as well as a panoramic view of Batman.
In addition to the the release of images, the article text has been coming out, too.
How about Christian Bale commenting on how he wasn't familiar with the character of Bane?
“I wasn’t familiar with Bane,”admits Christian Bale when EMPIRE catches up with him, similarly freed from his battle-gear in his own trailer just next door. “Although I vaguely remembered just a crazy ‘roid-looking guy with a mask.” We wonder if that was from the ill-conceived and ill-received Batman & Robin, in which the character appeared as a mindless, luchador-masked megachump. “You know what? I remember him less actually on screen, and more people telling me that – and wincing just like you did,” Bale chuckles. “I just trust and have faith in Chris. I knew he wasn’t gonna mess around with making a poor decision on who the bloody villain was!”
