Producer Emma Thomas on ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, Bane, and Catwoman


The Dark Knight Rises producer Emma Thomas talked with Total Film recently about Christopher Nolan’s final Batman movie. Thomas commented on Tom Hardy as Bane, and Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

Tom [Hardy] made a massive physical transformation for the role… It really is an intense performance. He finally feels like a match for Batman – both physically and mentally.

Christian Bale and Tom Hardy are both such fiercely committed actors that pitching them as adversaries works incredibly well – they have such a great chemistry on camera.

[Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman] is completely new and it’s a really interesting role. You never quite know where you are with her.

You can catch more of Total Film’s interview with Emma Thomas when the magazine goes on sale tomorrow. Anyone else interested to see what Nolan has in store for us with his “completely new” version of Catwoman?
