    Indeed. I flipping love Christian Bale, and oh boy, do I love him as Bruce/Bats.

    We've seen the same actor portray Batman for three films. Three great films in a row. We had the introduction; the outward journey of man lost, wanting some sort of path to his life, in Batman Begins. Then we got the more subtle, questioning inner struggle that is Bale's performance in The Dark Knight. And now, we actually get to see this man, this character's arc finished in The Dark Knight Rises. Being lost once again, but this time lost in his own obsession of what he became in the first two films. But this time he will be broken down to every psychical and mental degree, only to Rise from the ashes. The glorious and triumphant return from the hole that he was thrown into, that we will see in The Dark Knight Rises should be one for the ages. An amalgamation of everything Bruce has had to go through in the first two films, plus things he will have to experience and overcome for the first time in the final installment. I'm soaking it in, every single day until opening weekend. Nolan, Bale and Co. have really given us something, eh? Bring it on! My body is ready!

    Wow, I got scared there. I thought I'd have to re-type everything I just typed. Finally though, part II of the Bruce/Batman thread.

    Yes, Catwoman looks very sexy in that scene where she and Batman are approaching the bat-pod- she's all business! But I gotta say Bale's got a killer swagger in that scene...back in action. I think we're in store for some great, priceless scenes between the two. The anticipation is just too much!

    ^ big thanks to kvz for postign these :D

    love how Bale's approached the character -- i'm a bit sad, it's all coming to an end and feels as though it already has. I dunno if that's the mindset you want to go into this movie with, but it might help, after all, it is set after Batman's glory days are behind him.

    Kinda like the genre itself, but i'm not gonna push it there. (*dives off behind a wall)

    I'm proud of Bale, He's an accomplished and successful actor who had a unique privilege of donning the iconic cape and cowl of The Dark Knight and yet he remained true to himself and not being swept up in by the superstardom of the Hollywood status he had earned. It's bittersweet that his term as Batman is coming to an end but damn I can't wait to see him for the final time as THE BEST BATMAN in The Dark Knight Rises.

    I wish I could see Bale doing the Bat-voice for his daughter. That would be absolutely adorable :)

    I think they should start letting us fans ask the questions. These guys are just... idk lol
    Good interviews though, just wish the questions were a bit more interesting.

    ^Great interviews!

    Bale is so at ease here. I'm real happy for him and what he was able to accomplish with Batman in Nolan's franchise. Three times he dawned the cape and cowl! That really is an achievement.

    Still no late shows! But I still love ya, Christian!

    The BlackTree.com interview reminds me a lot of that old Bale interview post-T4 where the guy was trying to piss him off and even went to trying to bite the head off of a TDK action figure, just to flip him out. Bale was pissed and you could see him struggling to keep himself calm there :D

    I'm sure that isn't the case here, that the interviewer is just a dumbass :oldrazz: but somehow I think when he brings up "tool" he's calling that to the guy lol

    in fact, i'm looking at this one with Nolan:

    and... honestly... the interviewer is a dumbass. Nolan seems at ease because he's dishing out all the easy questions, to the point where it seems like Nolan's doing an interview for his first ever take on Batman all the way from 2005, and not, y'know, someone who's talking about how challenging it was to wrap the whole thing up.

    I'm loving the look of the fight sequences for TDKR, We are actually seeing Batman punch and kick much clearly than previously.

    Speaking of which, I wonder that given on how Bruce had been out of action for like 8 years, if they'll actually show him being rusty in some areas prior to his fight with Bane. I remember on how the filmmakers for Indiana Jones 4 for example had given moments where Indiana showed rust in some actions that he normally would have been able to do just fine back in his prime.

    They said Batman is changing his style because of he is not as good as before. I think kicking thugs head is a part of it. He is more brutal probably.

    Which is ironic considering on how I've read some ppl saying that he looks better in terms of how he fights in TDKR than how he was shown to fight in the last two films.lol

    I think when Bruce resumes as Batman, he hasn't forgotten his fighting style but after he get brutally beaten by Bane in his first confrontation and is exiled to the prison from which Bane was once held captive. He finds a way to retrain and improve his combat to be up to par with Bane so that when he returns to Gotham he's ready to match and surpass Bane with a much more aggressive form of combat .
