I saw The Dark Knight three separate times in the theater and at least another dozen on DVD. It’s one of my all time favorite movies, so my anticipation for The Dark Knight Rises is through the roof.
The second trailer for the film gives us a much better look at what seems to be a much more vulnerable and older Batman, as well as his enemies – Catwoman and Bane (who looks absolutely menacing).
Director Christopher Nolan is genius and one of the best filmmakers currently in the industry. He’s completely resurrected not only the Batman franchise, but elevated the quality and expectations of super hero movies.
In the original comic, Bane attacks Batman in the Batcave, defeats him, and breaks his back, leaving him a paraplegic. It will be very interesting to see if Nolan follows that storyline – consequently ending the Batman franchise.
Needless to say, my excitement for this movie has officially reached a fever pitch. July 20, 2012 (the films release date) has been marked in red ink on my calendar
