The Dark Knight Rises Update: Matthew Modine To Play Bad Guy?Posted: May 31, 2011 | |
Recent news has it that Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket) will be playing a character named Nixon, with further news suggesting that this may be an evil character; possibly a corrupt politician. The highly anticipated upcoming Batman sequel, The Dark Knight Rises, being directed by Christopher Nolan, has recently began filming, and although the news on Modine is the latest, much information is still under wraps, as is with most information on this movie.
Apparently, reports also suggest that the character Nixon will be a ‘key villain’ in the movie, and his scenes will be filmed in London. Hopefully, this may be true, considering at the moment there are only two main known villains in the upcoming sequel; Bane, and Catwoman, although of course, there is always the dilemma of whether the character of Catwoman is considered a villain or not. Either way, The Dark Knight Rises has begun filming, and I’m sure we will not be disappointed with the outcome of this masterpiece-to-be.
