Hilarious: 'The Dark Knight Rises' Audio Outtakes Reveal Morgan Freeman Doesn't Understand The Series At All

The Dark Knight Christian Bale Morgan Freeman

While Warner Bros. has yet to push out the final leg of the "The Dark Knight Rises" marketing campaign, this will certainly suffice in the meantime. We don't know who you are anonymous Internet comedians, but this is fucking gold.

A series of "authentic" outtakes from the set of "The Dark Knight Rises" have hit the interwebs and it's hilarious stuff. Christian Bale and Morgan Freeman chat between scenes, and things kick off with Freeman revealing that up until now, he hasn't understood that Bruce Wayne and Batman are actually the same person. From there topics range from Bale's anger at not getting asked to star in "Inception" instead of -- as he says -- Leonardo DiCapricot, and how if you play more than one character in a movie, you can earn two cheques.

This is great stuff. Listen below. [BuzzFeed]

    This sounds like bs... Doesn't sound like Morgan Freeman at all.

    This-is-comedy-gold. Seriously. Nolan need not put any more trailers. Seriously.

  • Oh | April 7, 2012 7:07 AMReply

    Uh Christian Bale is not American. So, there's the first of many problems.

  • Alan | April 8, 2012 4:29 AM

    He keeps the accent of his characters when he is not shooting a film, though, so that part is accurate.

    This is FAKE!!

    ... my work here, IS DONE!

  • Oogle monster | April 6, 2012 12:00 AMReply

    "Nolan! Nolan! Fucking answer me!!"

  • Alan | April 6, 2012 8:45 AM

    "Don't walk away from me, Nolan!" Nolan never appears in the video, but I like the idea that Nolan - in this universe, anyway - doesn't want to have anything to do with these conversations.

    Not awful but pretty lame. You guys are pretty much overreacting. This is average at best.

  • Mateus | April 6, 2012 7:54 AM

    Yeah, not so funny.

  • Alastor Taylor | April 5, 2012 11:03 PMReply

    Hmm, I personally thought the Morgan Freeman wasn't too bad. Also, the Christian Bale was definitely spot on. Well, spot on for his American accent of course.

    did LOL a lot though, great job to whoever did this.

    "i mean, your face, was all fucked up."

  • Random Jerkface | April 5, 2012 8:39 PMReply

    Oh my lord. Morgan Freeman is now my favourite.

  • Random Jerkface | April 5, 2012 8:41 PM

    And yes, I know it's fake. But shit is funny as hell.

  • pete275 | April 5, 2012 7:36 PMReply

    A computerized suit would actually be great. Live action Batman (or realistic, like in the Arkam games) always looks like shit, but the ones from the cartoons look great.

  • cosmo vitelli | April 5, 2012 7:27 PMReply

    you sad sacks need to get laid and stop whining about the vocal accuracy of impressions. "could somebody go to craft services and get me those hundred cal packs of ritz?"

  • Jazz | April 5, 2012 6:39 PMReply

    He sounds so much like Christian Bale its crazy! But that Morgan Freeman is weak.

  • hank | April 5, 2012 4:59 PMReply

    ROFL so hard right now.

  • Martin | April 5, 2012 4:19 PMReply

    Crazy. The Freeman voice isn't good. Sounds like Geoffrey Wright actually :)

    The Bale voice is good but I was hoping it would be funnier.


  • ABED IS BATMAN NOW | April 5, 2012 3:45 PMReply

    It appears to be from the guys who do the animated Comedy Central series Ugly Americans... there's a link to a trailer at the end of each clip, looks like they are doing a Batman-themed episode.

    This is f'in hilarious. The cotillard, worthington, and dbl paycheck bits had me dying!!! And yea that dude does a perfect Bale.

  • Cinematic_high | April 5, 2012 2:24 PMReply

    That's some funny shit.....and his voice is like expensive satin sheets.....

  • Gees | April 5, 2012 1:51 PMReply

    Bale: What the fuck, fucking fuckers, holly fucking shit.
    Freeman: Yep.

  • Eric | April 5, 2012 1:41 PMReply

    That's a great Bale (maybe it is Bale) but Freeman's voice is way off.

  • cirkusfolk | April 5, 2012 2:11 PM

    Agree on both. The Bale is spot on. Freeman sux ass.

  • Driver | April 5, 2012 1:37 PMReply

    Hahahaha, this is great stuff, really hilarious!

  • You Don't Know Jack | April 5, 2012 1:32 PMReply

    Hilarious! The Fighter/The Wrestler bit was hysterical.

  • cirkusfolk | April 5, 2012 2:24 PM

    That's the best one.

  • Lou | April 5, 2012 1:32 PMReply

    Many, many thanks. I enjoyed it a lot.

    You can stop this nonsense, April Fools is over. Wait... you don't honestly believe this is real...

    Oh wow!

  • Kevin | April 5, 2012 1:15 PM
