Gary Oldman discusses ‘Dark Knight Rises’

While on tour promoting “Red Riding Hood” Gary Oldman cannot escape the questions about his role as Commissioner Gordon in the third Batman film: “The Dark Knight Rises”, set to open July 20, 2012.

With MTV (see the video) Oldman reveals that he hasn’t read the script, but he does know the story: “and it’s great. It’s a great, great story.You look at The Dark Knight and you think, y’know, ‘How’s he [Christopher Nolan] going to top it?’ But I think he has.”

E! Online received the same response with an added nugget about the villains: “I know the story, I just think it’s going to be terrific. I think it’s a villain from one of the old, old, from way back from the old comics. It is a Batman villian… It’s not going to be the Joker.”

“If I told you who the villain was, they’d kill me.

When Flicksandbits asked about the excitement of putting on the Gordon uniform again, Oldman offered this response:

Gary Oldman: My drab greys and beiges (laughs). I went to the production offices the other day and there’s all these fantastic pictures across the wall, Catwoman, this, that, and I thought where’s my wall? I don’t have a wall, I just have a rack of very very dull clothes (laughs). I’m looking forward to working with the gang again, Academy Award winning Christian Bale, I bet he won’t get my coffee anymore (laughs).”
