Batman will be showing off a slick new, aerial ride when he next appears in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises”, but then you probably already know that. The Bat, as it’s called, has been seen in a ton of set images and videos, but this TV spot is the first official introduction, if you will, of Batman’s latest flying contraption. Hey, if it can outrun a half dozen heat-seeking missiles, I’m pretty sure it can keep up with a dude in a breathing apparatus.
Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to their limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent’s crimes.
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 for the last time July 20, 2012.
