Below is a couple of quotes from concept artist Tully Summers about THE DARK KNIGHT RISES via CINEWEBRADIO.COM. The original article is in French, so what you see below is translated and paraphrased...

On RISES being different from the films he usually works on: "The difference for me was the visual style of Christopher Nolan . One of the things that makes his Batman films are so good is [the realistic tone]. He often prefers something crude -- a more gritty style of design -- rather than something very smooth and nice. It's military aesthetic. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is a war movie."

On all the spy pics that showed up online: "Films like Batman are meticulously planned. Each [shot filmed] is designed, framed, lit and choreographed by the camera. [Spy photos are] out of context. His first two movies Batman [films represent what Nolan is doing on the new one]. I do not think fans will be disappointed [with RISES]."

"War movie?" Hmm...I'm down with that! (Thanks to BOF'er "Pelle" for the heads up!)

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES -- starring Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard -- hits theaters on JULY 20, 2012!
