As seen in the pic above, Bruce Wayne is not in good shape at all at some point in Rises. In a recent interview with Scottish T.V, Bale gives some more insight into how sick Wayne is.
“He’s filled with remorse, he’s become a recluse, he’s given up and completely quit. He’s in very poor health physically and mentally. He is not a healthy superhero. He has multiple-personality disorder and is a very sad, lonely individual.” Poor Bruce. He really has been through a lot in his life time as if death itself is following him and he’s taking it all upon himself. But that’s why this film is called The Dark Knight RISES. But he can’t do so without his faults. “He has the public persona of the playboy and the character of Batman is the personification of his rage and sense of injustice. He’s almost a villain and takes it to the edge, where he can do no wrong, but he has this altruism holding him back from doing that. The reason he dresses in the Batman suit is that he feels monstrous, so he creates a monster to represent that rage and keep it away from his own personal life.”
Nolan is pulling out all the stops on this one. He truly is a master storyteller. Not only does he have to deal with Bane and Catwoman and the city but also himself, he sure does have his hands full. Does all of this sound like your average superhero movie? See who Bruce overcomes his challenges when The Dark Knight Rises opens next week on July 20th.
