Will Dark Knight Rises Director’s Cut Blu-ray Include Bane Origin Scene?
At 165 minutes, there’s already a lot of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises to go around. But, if Nuke The Fridge‘s spies are on point, there will be about a half hour more footage when the Warner Bros. film arrives on Blu-ray and DVD.
According to the website’s sources, the longer version will feature the Bane origin story hinted at last month by the film’s costume designer, as well as more footage featuring Liam Neeson’s Ra’s al Ghul.
Collider suggests that director Christopher Nolan, who’s usually economical with his shooting, had to chop the 30 minutes out of the final edit not because of run-time concerns, but because the actual IMAX reel can only hold so much film.
