The Dark Knight Rises and its cacophony of Bat-growling, Bane-mumbling, and impressive Cat-breathing won't hit your ears for another six months, and though you should obviously already have tickets or you're fucked, for those of you still needing of convincing that this Batman thing is worth your money, here are some new photos along with words from director Christopher Nolan, who verbally strokes our heads and lets us know this whole Bane thing will be just fine.
Said Nolan of the controversy:
"I think when people see the film, things will come into focus. Bane is very complex and very interesting and when people see the finished film people will be very entertained by him."
But entertaining and understandable, or entertaining like when an old prospector is ranting indiscernibly because someone stole his gold? I guess that will come into focus later. For now, here are some new stills:
Batman, asking his girlfriend if this new suit fits okay.
Bane doing the best :( one can do when they're wearing headphones sideways.
