Gary Oldman: "The Dark Knight Rises" is epic

(CBS) Actor Gary Oldman has been busy promoting his new Cold War-era thriller, "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," which also stars Tom Hardy. The two actors are also appearing together in the highly anticipated final installment in Christopher Nolan's Batman series, "The Dark Knight Rises."

In fact, as Oldman pointed out while speaking to CBSNews.com at the New York red carpet premiere of "Tinker," the two co-stars recently co-starred in three projects.

"I work with Tom [Hardy] here on "Tinker"...Then I worked with him on "The Wettest County," which is coming out [next April]...and then a third time on Batman Rises [sic]. So it's the year of me and Tom Hardy," he said.

We tried to pry some information from Oldman about the fate of Commissioner Gordon and the rest of the citizens of Gotham City, but the actor refused to divulge, telling us, "I can't really say anything because one is sworn to secrecy."

Oldman was, however, adamant that fans will be satisfied with the conclusion of Nolan's Batman trilogy. Promising that the series will go out with a bang, Oldman added, "It's epic. It's epic. It's the third...It's the conclusion of the trilogy and honestly, the story is amazing."

"The Dark Knight Rises" is set to be released on July 20, 2012.
