Six Spectacular New Images From The Dark Knight Rises

Well, it looks like I’ll have to buy Empire magazine this month. Comic Book Movie has put up scans of six pages from the magazine, each with a different image from Christopher Nolan‘s highly anticipated The Dark Knight Rises, and they’re all extremely exciting.

Each one focuses on a different character, from Anne Hathaway‘s Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) to Tom Hardy’s Bane, to Christian Bale as the Bat himself. The pages all contain quotes from what appears to be Empire’s feature story on the film, and they’re all intriguing. Nolan and company have spoken so little about the film up to now, and I’m eager to finally hear some of their thoughts.

In any case, every new frame I see from this film just makes me more excited. To my mind, The Dark Knight Rises looks like it could easily be better than The Dark Knight, a challenge few expected Nolan to overcome before footage and photos started being released.

The Dark Knight Rises arrives in theatres and IMAX July 20th.
