The Dark Knight Rises: Behind the Scenes (VIDEO)

IGN posted a cool behind-the-scenes featurette of The Dark Knight Rises today. “What we’re constructing here is a very, very elemental conflict between good and evil,” says director Christopher Nolan. It’s been eight years since Batman has been missing, and with a new threat looming over Gotham, no one is sure whether he’ll return or not.

From the video: 

  • Anne Hathaway (Selina Kyle/Catwoman): “Chris was able to amp up the stakes for this last movie, and we will take it to places I don’t think anyone is expecting.”
  • Emma Thomas (producer): “Everything seems fine on the surface, but it’s all built on this lie.”
  • Jonathan Nolan (screenplay): “It’s the true test of a hero, confronted with their darkest fears being taken all the way to the edge. How do they come back?”
  • Tom Hardy (Bane): “I remember seeing Chris in the make-up chair. There’s a three-year-old in me saying, ‘That’s Batman.’”
  • Michael Caine (Alfred): “You know what Alfred is. He is us in this incredible world. He’s not tough like all the others.”
  • Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox): “Lucius and Alfred… Between the two of them, we try to keep the moral compass pointed in the right direction.”
