Dark Knight Rises Preview

Christian Bale, in full Batman getup, dominated Entertainment Weekly's 2012 Preview issue yesterday, as part of the release of six new images from the highly-anticipating completion to the Batman trilogy.

The six shots (all posted here) reveal a new midnight navy batsuit (above), as well as a image that reveals an insight into Gary Oldman's Commissioner Gordon - perhaps in a climactic wit's-end type of scene.

Christopher Nolan's final installment takes place eight years after "The Dark Knight." In the magazine, Bale confesses that his final stunt as the hero/anti-hero gave him a weighty pressure.

Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan wrote the script for the upcoming feature, which will include returning cast members Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Nestor Carbonell. New additions include Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anne Hathaway, whose role as Selina Kyle/Catwoman is cautiously anticipated. The film will open July 20, 2012.
