The Dark Knight Rises Premieres in New York

The most-anticipated film of the summer, The Dark Knight Rises, premiered in New York. INSIDE EDITION talks to the cast about the bittersweet final chapter in the Batman saga.     

It was a star-studded premiere for The Dark Knight Rises. Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman and Anne Hathaway in a daring, low-cut white dress, thrilled fans who lined Broadway in New York. 

Hathaway said she steered clear of watching other previous incarnations of Catwoman, like Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Hathaway told INSIDE EDITION, "I looked back at the comics and really focused on who she was when the series started." 

Batman himself, Christian Bale, said of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, "She managed to really own the costume."

But Bale had some issues with his costume.

Bale told INSIDE EDITION, "We needed to adjust it. I couldn't breathe very well. I mean, does anyone like something so tight around their head?"

The film is getting lots of strong buzz. The Hollywood Reporter is calling it, "Big-time Hollywood filmmaking at its most massively accomplished."

There's something else that has people talking. It has to do with the villain in the movie. He's called Bane. Yes, Bane, as in Mitt Romney's investment firm.

Jon Stewart joked on his show, "The hottest story of the moment is about Mitt Romney's old venture capital firm, which happens to be the same name as the most frightening, and current villain in the new Batman movie."

We should point out that the villain Bane was created way back in the early 1990's, long before Romney became a candidate. The comic book writer who created the character Bane called the comparison ridiculous.
