Who would’ve thought that a director that never does directors cut, and never includes deleted scenes in his films, would actually shoot down the rumors of a supposed Directors Cut for The Dark Knight Rises.
Didn’t see that one coming.
For those of you who are upset about this new turn of events consider this there are often very few (if any) deleted scenes featured on the home releases of Christopher Nolan’s films, so for anyone to assume and/or believe that he’d change his entire policy now and actually have enough left over footage to make an even longer version of his final Batman film, which was already nearly three hours long as it currently stands, is far too big of an assumption for anyone to make.
The Playlist have reached out to Nolan’s reps and have received this response:
“…no such plans exist, and reports of an extended cut of the film are incorrect.”
