With the July 20th release of The Dark Knight Rises edging closer and closer by the day excitement has reached such a fervent state that any information released about the film could induce a heart attack. Thus to protect those with a nervous disposition Christopher Nolan has decided to release teeny tiny doses of information about The Dark Knight's upcoming endeavours.

Of course Nolan and the film's cast have only ever being telling us small smidgens of detail regarding the movie but this latest round has been enough to set the internet ablaze with gossip and rumour. Talking to Entertainment Weekly the director has revealed characteristics about two of the franchises newest character's in Bane and Selena Kyle, who will no doubt turn into Catwoman.

Regarding the former Nolan stated that "He represents formidable physical strength, combined with absolute evil of intention" while the latter is " a shifty cipher, calloused survivor, and world-class criminal." Sounds like Bruce Wayne and his comrades have some pretty formidable opponents to deal with.

Hardy himself revealed more info about his mumbling antagonist and concerning the trouble audiences might have with understanding the masked villain he noted, "It's a risk, because we could be laughed at. Or it could be very fresh and exciting. The audience must not be too concerned about the mumbly voice. As the film progresses, I think you'll be abe to tune to its setting."

Hathaway has also talked about the extent too which she had to train for the role. "I had to physically transform. Chris sat me down at the beginning and said, 'Joseph Gordon-Levitt did all of his own fighting in Inception. That one zero-gravity fight? He trained for two months.' I basically left his office and went to the gym and just came out about five minutes ago."

Is the kind of charm and with that we can expect Hathaway to instill into the Batman francise? Let's hope not, Gotham is a place where funny people don't thrive. Well, except for that one guy.

AND there is even more information regarding the caped crusader with Warner Bros announcing that the film will be released under the family-friendly PG-13 rating. Of course, some people will be disappointed with this announcement but, come on, they want to get their money's worth from the franchise and anyway the MPAA have noted that they made their decision because of "intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language." Boy do these guys know how to sell a film.

Anyway, It's going to be spectacular. It just has to be.
