What’s that, you say? You’d sure like to know more about the plot for Christopher Nolan’s third and last Batman film? You mean, beyond the quick glimpses of story and mayhem? Well glad you asked! Warner Bros. has unleashed a new (second full) trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises”, that offers up even more plot, even more action, and yes, I do believe that’s Batman and Catwoman teaming up there in the end in his driving/flying/doohickey. Heck, it doesn’t look just like Bats and Cats team up, it looks like whoever the heck JGL is playing, he teams up right alongside them. Hmm, I guess rumors that he might not be such a good guy was unfounded after all.

Set eight years after the events of “The Dark Knight”, “The Dark Knight Rises” follows new bad guy Bane as he arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to their limits, and forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent’s crimes. Brilliantly directed mayhem, it is expected, ensue.

Starring Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple, Josh Pence, Nestor Carbonell, and rising to punch you in the face July 20, 2012.

    Impressive! The Nolanverse Batman have haters! Wow!

    I think the trailer rocks, and it was a very good idea to re-activate the viral campaing and a new trailer now that The Avengers pretty much took the worlds attention.

    Love The Avengers, but I just can’t wait for TDKR

    Watching the trailer again on a bigger screen, I’m pretty sure at least one shot of Batman is JGL in costume, which makes the gears in my head imagine several possible moments to come:

    1-Bruce Wayne dies and JGL’s John Blake puts on the costume to finish the fight/continue the idea of Batman (this is the ending that I wanted from “Dark Knight Returns”, only Blake=Carrie Kelly), or

    2-Blake finds out at some point that Wayne=Batman, gets to know him, gets access to the costume, puts it on and Bane gets medievel on his Blake (this is what I assumed gay Joker essentially did to Robin in “DKR”). Wayne gets into a “Dark Knight Returns” kind of mood and takes care of things, meanwhile

    3-Talia plays the role of Andrea Beaumont from “Mask of the Phantasm”, so that part of the story isn’t ending well

    4-Catwoman=Kelly, if Carrie Kelly was a female Bruce Wayne instead of Angelina Jolie from “Hackers.”

    But I could be wrong, and I just got back from a bar so who the hell knows

      John Blake part is a good idea – nolan likes to trick us we didnt even know 2 face was until later etc… never know… could be robin.
