No Director’s Cut Planned For The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray and DVD

Christopher Nolan isn’t planning on including an extended director’s cut for the Blu-ray and DVD releases of his hit superhero film ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ Indiewire is reporting. The news comes after reports surfaced that the writer-director-producer of the popular Batman trilogy would add such details as Bane’s origin story to his finale, which already runs for 165 minutes. There was also news that the new version of the movie would be re-released next June, just before the Nolan-produced ‘Man of Steel’ is set to be theatrically released.

It wasn’t expected that Nolan would release the extended director’s cut of ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ as he rarely includes deleted scenes on the home video releases of his films. He also told MTV recently that “I tend to try and weed things out on paper because it’s crazy expensive to shoot things that aren’t going to be in the film. It also takes up a lot of time and energy.” The filmmaker added that with “pretty much with all my films, there are very few deleted scenes, which always disappoints the DVD crowd.”

No official details on the Blu-ray and DVD releases of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ have been confirmed yet. But it’s expected they’ll be released in time for the holiday season.
