Batman at the MTV Movie Awards
More footage from The Dark Knight Rises was shown at this year’s MTV Movie Awards.
It begins with a scene in which Selina Kyle, Anne Hathaway, is being interrogated by John Blake, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. After this we get to see a variety of other shots from the film, the most interesting, in my eyes, is what appears to be the Lazarus Pit.
In the comic books, the Lazarus Pit is used by Ra’s al Ghul, who is set to appear in the film, as a way to heal otherwise fatal injuries. However, using the Lazarus Pit comes at a cost; it has a nasty side effect of turning people insane. Since Bane is the man who broke the bat, the Lazarus Pit could potentially be used to heal Bruce Wayne’s back. They may even not included the side effect in the film, but there have been scenes, shown in a TV spot, were Bruce was walking with a cane which could just be from a bane beating rather than a recovering spine.
Another interesting part in the clip shows Batman and Catwoman working together. Selina is a really interesting character and every time more footage of her is realised it gets easier to see Christopher Nolan chose Anne Hathaway for the role. The movie version seems to be close to the way she was portrayed in her early appearances and it’s nice to see that she has a criminal record and isn’t just going to run around fighting crime with Batman the entire movie.
The Dark Knight Rises will hit cinemas hard on the 20th of July with a massive running time of two hours and forty five minutes.
