Right off the heels of the official ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ trailer comes a description of an actual scene from the movie courtesy of The LA Times from a London set tour of the film. Although I wish there was an actual clip to watch, a description of a scene is better than nothing. The scene apparently features Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) and Selina Kyle aka Catwoman (Anne Hathaway). For those of you that don’t want to know anything about the film before seeing it I suggest you look away now, although this isn’t spoiler territory at all, at least in my opinion it isn’t.
Here ya go:
Gotham City is a war zone. A ruthless madman named Bane has ripped away any sense of security and the citizens, haggard and clutching suitcases with refugee anxiety, sit behind barbed wire waiting to see what will blow up next. A hooded prisoner is dragged in – it’s Bruce Wayne, one of Gotham’s most famous faces – but the eyes of the crowd go instead to the woman in black standing at the top of the staircase.
“Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane needs these guys himself,” says sultry Selina Kyle, played here by actress Anne Hathaway, navigating the steps with stiletto heels that, on closer inspection, turn out to have serrated edges capable of leaving nasty claw marks in a fight. She also wears high-tech goggles that, when not in use, flip up and resemble feline ears.
The Catwoman quote doesn’t make much sense to me out of context but either way this is good stuff because now we have some confirmation that Catwoman is working with Bane, or at least she is in this scene. I also think it’s a nice touch that the heels of her stilettos are actually serrated knives, sounds badass to me.
Stay tuned for more ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ info and look for it in theaters and IMAX (no 3D thankfully!) in July of 2012.
