Rumored Director's Cut Of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES To Come Out Right Before MAN OF STEEL

A source for Nuke The Fridge claimed that the DVD/Blu-ray release would include a director's cut of The Dark Knight Rises, and now they claim that it will hit stores just before the Man of Steel debuts.



A few days ago Nuke The Fridge reported that a source had told them that a director's cut of The Dark Knight Rises with 30 extra minutes of footage would be released on DVD and Blu-ray. This seems highly unlikely seeing as though Chris Nolan has NEVER created a director's cut for one of his films. Nolan is a very meticulous planner, editing out scenes in pre-production to limit waste. In the past MTV asked the director about deleted scenes, a longer cut of The Dark Knight Rises, and Nolan replied, "With all my films, there are very few deleted scenes, which always disappoints the DVD crowd."

The only reasons to think that a director's cut is possible, would be that the costumes designer, Lindy Hemming, has confirmed that there is footage of Bane that never made it on screen. But secondly and more importantly, we know that the 70mm print of The Dark Knight Rises pushed the limits of IMAX projectors. And you would have to imagine that some scenes were cut just to fit the limitations of IMAX platters.

Today, we got word from the same source that gave us the heads up about the “Directors Cut” about the potential release date for that Blu-ray. So according to that person a new version of “The Dark Knight Rises” will be out on Blu-ray sometime right before Zack Snyder’s, “Man of Steel,” opens in theater. - Nuke The Fridge
