Warner Bros. Studios The Dark Knight Rises is part of the rapid fire battering ram of comic book movies due out this summer. Knowing they’re going up against The Amazing Spider-Man and The Avengers, Warner Bros. has some new eye candy for us for the new Christopher Nolan Batman film. Heralded as “the epic conclusion to the Dark Knight legend”, it receives its theatrical debut Friday with Marvel’s The Avengers.
The trailer is epic, filled with portent, large-scale collateral damage, an “adaptable” Selina Kyle and a surprisingly intelligible Bane (“I’m Gotham’s reckoning,” Tom Hardy says, clear as day, through his character’s mask – Nolan had gone back and done a remix after preliminary screenings pointed out the fact that nobody could understand a damn thing he said).
Opening July 20, The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale as Batman, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, Michael Caine as Alfred, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.
