The Dark Knight Rises trailer has been released and is already creating a flurry amongst ardent fans of Gotham’s favorite caped crusader. Warner Bros. released The Dark Knight Rises trailer Tuesday; the film is the third time Christopher Nolan has put his stamp on the classic superhero.
Previous Dark Knight Rises trailers left a bad taste in some fans’ mouths, given that Bane, played by Tom Hardy, was difficult to understand with his muddled speech. In the new trailer, Bane can clearly be heard declaring that he is “Gotham’s reckoning.”
Chrisitan Bale plays a crushed Batman who must come out of hiding to save Gotham from the evils of Bane. The Dark Knight Rises also gives fans a look at Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. However, the film’s version of Catwoman is drastically different from Batman Forever’s seductive Nicole Kidman and her tight leather suit. Hathaway’s character is far more reminiscent of the comic book Catwoman.
Liam Neeson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gary Oldman also have been recruited for The Dark Knight Rises, which opens July 20.
Check out the trailer below.
