15 Facts You Might Not Have Known About ‘The Dark Knight Rises’
Anne Hathaway memorably played Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, but she very nearly played another catty superhero. The Oscar-winning actress was set to play Black Cat in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4, which would have also featured John Malkovich as Vulture. That film was canceled shortly before filming and Sony eventually decided to reboot the whole franchise. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes completely batty with The Dark Knight Rises!
Tom Hardy based his unique voice for Bane on an Irish boxer named Bartley Gorman. But, it was initially so difficult to understand, director Christopher Nolan had to adjust the audio. A six-minute preview of The Dark Knight Rises was shown in theaters with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and fans complained that Bane’s dialogue was almost impossible to understand. So Nolan tweaked the vocal track to make it more clear when the entire film was released to theaters.
