Christian Bale discusses ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ script, his last Batman film

This summer’s “Dark Knight Rises” will mark the end to director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Star Christian Bale discussed the finale and reading the script for the first time.

This weekend’s LA Times’ Hero Complex published a visit with the cast and crew from the film and Bale recounted reading the script initially.

“I remember when I first read the script…of course it was all top secret. I went round by Chris’s house, was shut in the room with the script – not allowed to leave with it – and it hit me that this was the last one.

“What Chris couldn’t believe was how slow I read because I go back and re-read until I have it all in my mind. I was in there six or seven hours. It was dark when I came out. And I was smiling.”

Following “Batman Begins” and the huge hit “Dark Knight,” the third and final chapter will feature the villain Bane, played by Tom Hardy. Anne Hathaway also joins the cast as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.

Bale, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman reprise their key roles from the first two films.

“The Dark Knight Rises” comes to theaters July 20, 2012.
