A massive spoiler for The Dark Knight Rises awaits in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, featuring a stellar coverage on Christopher Nolan's magnum opus to his well-received Batman trilogy.

In the latest issue of the much-respected UK film magazine Empire, Christopher Nolan's much-anticipated swan song to his critically acclaimed Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, is in the spotlight as the director unveiled some official images and startling plot points from the film. Frankly, these should not be considered as spoilers given the fact that we are talking about some integral setting for the film. But for those who really wanted to dive in the final chapter of Nolan Batman epic with zero information, do head away now.

Okay, for those who are still here, Nolan tells us some intriguing point behind the setting of the film:

"It's really all about finishing Batman and Bruce Wayne's story. We left him in a very precarious place. Perhaps surprisingly for some people, our story picks up quite a bit later, eight years after The Dark Knight. So he's an older Bruce Wayne; he's not in a great state."

Eight freaking years! Are we witnessing the twilight of the Dark Knight's career? Anyway, with regard to the much-reported prologue set to be attached with MAX version of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Nolan has this to say:

"The Prologue is basically the first six, seven minutes of the film. It’s the introduction to Bane and a taste of the rest of the film. With Bane we are looking to give Batman a physical challenge that he hasn’t had before. In terms of finishing our story and increasing its scope, we were trying to craft an epic."

Speaking of Bane, Nolan gave us a description on the big screen version of the menacing villain who infamously once broke Batman's back in the comic books:

"So when you’re looking to continue the story – in this case finish Bruce Wayne and Batman’s story, as we see it – then you certainly don’t want a watered-down version of a character you’ve already done. You want a different archetype. What Bane represents in the comics is the ultimate physical villain."

Nolan elaborates on the point of the "ultimate physical villain":

"He's brutal. Brutal. He's a big dude who's incredibly clinical, in the fact that he has a result-based and oriented fighting style. It's not about fighting. It's about carnage. The style is heavy-handed, heavy-footed, it's nasty. Anything from small-joint manipulation to crushing skulls, crushing rib cages, stamping on shins and knees and necks and collarbones and snapping heads off and tearing his fists through chests, ripping out spinal columns. He is a terrorist in mentality as well as brutal action.... He was injured early in his story. He's suffering from pain and he needs gas to survive. He cannot survive the pain without the mask. The pipes from the mask go back along his jaw line and feed into the thing at the back where there are two canisters of what ever it is…the anesthetic."

And here are some more scans from the magazine, on sale now in the United Kingdom.
