Sorry we’re a bit late with these guys… busy, busy, busy.

Here’s a few new images fromThe Dark Knight Rises from the guys at Batman News:  They show us new glimpses at Catwoman’s costume, Bane at the stock exchange, Bruce Wayne with Lucius Fox, and Batman checking his email on an iPad (probably not – ed).

We recently had it confirmed that The Dark Knight Rises will share the same 12a rating here in the UK and PG-13 in the US as with the first two movies and we’re still surprised how little has been officially released for the movie from Warners and Nolan. It’s clear that secrecy is the aim of the day.

However EW have managed to get these bits outt of Nolan and co:

“Hardy says Bane’s voice is influenced by the comic book character’s Caribbean heritage among other things, and the concern over the muffled quality was initially discussed – “It’s a risk, because we could be laughed at — or it could be very fresh and exciting..The audience mustn’t be too concerned about the mumbly voice. As the film progresses, I think you’ll be able to tune to its setting.

In regards to Catwoman, Nolan says “She has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about which implies an underlying darkness.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
