New details of The Dark Knight Rises have been coming in hard since the film wrapped its production. While doing press for his new movie The Flowers of War, Ace Showbiz spoke to Christian Bale about his work on The Dark Knight Rises. As we already know, the film starts 8 years after the events of the second film and Batman is not in a good place.
Speaking on the character of Bruce Wayne, Bale had this to say: “How long will you let the pain and loss define your life? Walking around chasing bad guys is very heroic and attracts attention, but at the end it all accounts for, as a means to deal with the pain of a huge loss.” He also added, “We agreed that Bruce Wayne is absolutely sincere as Bruce Wayne, and as Batman utterly sincere…. But Bruce Wayne, the playboy, is a pure facade, it’s a lie he has, somehow, to control one side of your soul that’s not really under control. In fact, only Alfred knows who he is. It’s time for Bruce Wayne to face the pain that has always stirred his life.”
Being that this is the final film in the Bat-trilogy Bale expressed his feelings about leaving the character behind: “It’s like saying goodbye to an old friend. When you have the opportunity to be a character so many times, you develop another relationship with him, a more profound one.”
