Making Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy – A BTS Gallery

Christopher Nolan’s Bruce Wayne / Batman has grappled with such weighty issues as survivor guilt, the ethics of vigilantism and the escalation that inevitably follows, and the consequences of a life that, as star Christian Bale felt, is “entirely directed by pain, holding on to that pain. It’s about making the decision to continue [being Batman] in order to maybe self-destruct, or whether he can find some kind of rebirth, to be himself.”

A hell of a three picture ride, on a massive scale, treating the superhero myth with respect, heft, and gravitas (with a few incidental chuckles along the way – Selina Kyle’s Senator “date” amidst a bar room gunfight – “call me?“) What we have for you here are a small selection of some behind the scenes shots during the making of the trilogy, brought to our attention on Twitter via @Twistedshotgun and our good friend, Larry Wright. You may have seen some already, but there are a lot of rarely seen images as well. The full collection can be viewed via smashcave.com.
