It's been quite a while since director Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises has left theaters. In fact, the film recently celebrated it's DVD/Blu-ray release (which we reviewed here), and the disc set revealed plenty of behind the scenes footage and gave fans of the franchise a peek at the early stages of the creative process. If you managed to be one of the lucky folks to get your hands on a copy of The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray, then you may recognize some of the images we have posted below. We personally found it to be pretty interesting to see how the creative minds behind one of the most successful films in history came into fruition, and we hope you feel the same.
If you've wondered how Bane's mask came to be, or how many different versions of the design worn by actor Tom Hardy there actually were, you might find it surprising how designers decided on the way the mask would look in it's final stages. Beyond the mask though are examples of the different versions of the shoes worn by actress Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, as well as the different ideas for the texture the actress' final costume. Check out many of the images below and let us know what you think. Are there designs you think would have been better suited for the film, or do you think the final products we saw on-screen were perfect for the movie?== TEASER ==
