‘The Dark Knight Rises’: Christian Bale speaks out

Coming summer 2012.

As if we weren’t excited enough already about the release of “The Dark Knight Rises,” we have some all-new details courtesy of Christian Bale about what can we expect.

In a new interview with AceShowbiz, Bale explained that the finale of Christopher Nolan’s trilogy is truly going to touch on the emotional side of being a hero — which in many ways is marking everyone you love for danger:

“How long will you let the pain and loss define your life? Walking around chasing bad guys is very heroic and attracts attention, but at the end it all accounts for, as a means to deal with the pain of a huge loss.” 

Bale admits that it is going to be difficult for him to hang up the famous cape that he has worn for so many years — but the general sentiment here seems to be that closing out the trilogy is indeed for the best at this time.

Stay tuned — we’ll have more notes on the film leading up to its summer 2012 release!
