Los hermanos Nolan hablan sobre The Dark Knight

Christopher NolanPara muchos Batman es su superhéroe favorito, para mi Christopher Nolan y su hermano Jonathan bien pueden tener un estatus similar, siendo creadores de Following y Memento, dos cintas básicas en mi siempre creciente cinefilia.

Jonathan ha colaborado en repetidas oportunidades con su ya famoso hermano, casi como un asesor tras bastidores, escribiendo las historias y primeros guiones en los cuales Christopher basa sus cintas. Es el caso de The Dark Knight, la nueva película de Batman en la que están trabajando actualmente, con mucho secretismo de por medio. En esta esta interesantísima entrevista ambos cuentan algunos detalles, no sin el temor que la Warner Bros. los asesine si dicen más de lo debido. Destaco una anécdota que cuenta Jonathan sobre sus inicios en el mundo del cómic:

So who is the bigger comic book fan prior to Batman was it you or [Christopher]?

Jonathan Nolan: You know it's funny, I have told this story a couple of times at the risk of sounding like I am repeating myself, when I was 14 years old, my brother, I was not a big comic book fan when I was a kid, a little bit of this a little bit of that, but Chris gave me a copy of Dark Knight Returns for my birthday when I was 14 and that was it. That was the only superhero that I was interested in. Fifteen years later to the day, last year we went to the premiere of "Batman Begins," which I worked on sort of on and off, not as a writer but as a consultant. It was really, really cool to be there because Batman is really the only, well, as you know he's the best superhero. For me he was the only superhero, so to work on that sort of material doesn't happen often but when it does happen you just feel very, very lucky.

Solo espero lo mejor de este duo creativo, por lo pronto me preparo para ver The Prestige, que se debe estar estrenando en las próximas semanas.

PD. Si alguien encuentra una foto de Jonathan Nolan se gana un premio :)
