I like that Gary Oldman, who plays Police Commissioner Jim Gordon in the movie Batverse, doesn’t give the impression he’s “above” a movie like “The Dark Knight Rises”. Yes, it’s a film by Christopher Nolan, one of the most respected filmmakers today, but you know, at the end of the day it’s still a Hollywood superhero movie. Take, for example, Oldman’s attitude and compare it to Tommy Lee Jones’ “I did it for the paycheck” responses to his role in Joe Johnston’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”.
Anyways, Absolute Radio cornered Gary Oldman at some movie awards show somewhere recently and, of course, “The Dark Knight Rises” rose as a topic. Oldman answered plenty, including the May start date, and goes on to talk about the fact that the script for “Rises” doesn’t have an ending on the printed pages, but instead, Nolan tells the actors how the movie will end. This, of course, is to keep us Internet Gremlins from finding out. Like, you know, that’s gonna stop someone from finding out if he’s determined to find out how the movie ends, but good try anyway, old chap.
Batman rises again in 2012.
Thanks to Jason for the heads up.
