Collider caught up with Gary Oldman at his 3-day, 7-film retrospective at New York’s Landmark Sunshine Cinema. During the Q&A portion, Oldman talked about The Dark Knight Rises, and described one of his favorite scenes. Don’t worry, he doesn’t give away any major details.
He gave up details on a key scene in The Dark Knight Rises: “There’s an emotional scene coming up in the next Batman, which I am obviously, absolutely sworn to secrecy about… They would kill me. Well, I’d do the press junket and then they’d kill me.” He said, “Watching Michael Caine work, as Alfred, was a great lesson for me. Just focus, concentration. He has this emotional scene. I’m kidding you not. It was tears and the whole thing. And it’s ‘Take 1.’ (Oldman snaps his fingers) He got it. ‘Take 2′ (snaps his fingers again), Got it. Take 3 (snaps his fingers) Got it. He’s just on the money. Every single time.
Could this be the scene from The Dark Knight Rises that we saw in trailer #2? “You are as precious to me as you were to your own mother and father. I swore to them that I would protect you…and I haven’t.” It seems like that will definitely be an emotional scene between Alfred and Bruce.
