Quote of the Day: David Cronenberg on Superhero Films

David Cronenberg

"And certainly, I've made the horror films and people say, "Can you make a horror film also an art film?" And I would say, 'Yeah, I think you can.' But a superhero movie, by definition, you know, it's comic book. It's for kids. It's adolescent in its core. That has always been its appeal, and I think people who are saying, you know, 'Dark Knight Rises is, you know, supreme cinema art,' I don't think they know what the f**k they're talking about."

- Cosmopolis director David Cronenberg comments on The Dark Knight and the superhero film genre.

Anne Hathaway Loved Beating Up Men ‘Too Much’ in Dark Knight Rises

Anne Hathaway at The Dark Knight Rises premiereAnne Hathaway enjoyed beating up men "a little too much" in The Dark Knight Rises.

The 29-year-old actress plays Catwoman in the Batman movie, and she loved grappling with guys in a more action-packed role than she usually takes on.

"Being in the movie was fun because I had to learn to beat up guys - I enjoyed that a little too much," she said,
speaking at the European premiere of The Dark Knight Rises at London's Leicester Square last night.

Christian Bale reprises his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the third movie in Christopher Nolan's trilogy, and Anne found the 38-year-old star "really inspiring" to act alongside: "The first minute you work with Christian Bale it's just amazing. I found him to be really inspiring. It was really great to work with him."

The brunette beauty looked stunning in a white designer dress beaded with silver sequinned flowers at the premiere, and she admitted she loved wearing her skin-tight cat-suit in the blockbuster.

Christopher Nolan Will ‘Never’ Do Another Batman Film

Christopher NolanChristopher Nolan will "never" make another 'Batman' movie.

According to the director's wife and producing partner Emma Thomas, there is "no possibility" of the filmmaker - who has helmed Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and forthcoming film The Dark Knight Rises - taking charge of another motion picture containing the superhero because he wouldn't be able to get "excited" about a fourth film in the franchise.

"No, that's truly a never. I can't imagine a world in which he would ever want to come back. At a certain point it's fun to go off and do something different, you know. We've spent almost 10 years of our lives making Batman films. He was very excited about this film, and the story that he'd come up with, but I just cannot imagine that he would get that excited about another version of the same thing."

Emma believes a third movie in the series still feels like part of the original movie, but she insists doing a fourth motion picture in the franchise wouldn't be appealing to Christopher because the story will have veered so far away from 2005's Batman Begins.

Cillian Murphy For The Dark Knight Rises?

Cillian MurphyCillian Murphy has hinted he may appear in The Dark Knight Rises.

The Irish actor - who starred as villain Scarecrow in Batman Begins - could reprise his role for the third and final movie in Christopher Nolan's franchise.

"Well, it's coming out in July isn't it? That's not long to wait. All these questions!" he said when asked if he would be appearing in the film.

Scarecrow made a brief appearance in The Dark Knight, and Cillian previously revealed he would be happy to take on the role for a third time: "It's not for me to start campaigning for the Scarecrow to come back, but if Chris wants me back in that role, yeah, absolutely, I would love to do it."

Cillian combines a Hollywood career along with theatre - most recently picking up New York's prestigious Drama Desk Award for his Outstanding Solo Performance in Enda Walsh's Misterman - and he revealed he unpredictability is one of the best and worst things about being an actor.
