The new issue of Entertainment Weekly sports a cover featuring Christian Bale as Batman and Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, teasing the magazine’s preview of The Dark Knight Rises, the final installment of director Christopher Nolan’s big-screen trilogy. While EW.com offers the briefest of glimpses of what’s inside — select quotes from the Tom Hardy, Nolan and Hathaway — the Batman News fan site has high-quality scans from the issue, providing the first look at new images Batman/Bruce Wayne, Selina Kyle, Bane, Lucius Fox and John Blake. Warner Bros. will undoubtedly officially release the stills in a few days, but until then these scans will do the trick.
The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale as Batman, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Tom Hardy as Bane, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, Michael Caine as Alfred, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox. It opens July 20.
