The latest trailer for The Dark Knight Rises was supposed to appear during the trailers for the soon to be mega blockbuster The Avengers. But fans got an early look Monday when the Facebook page for The Dark Knight Rises had this link accompanied by the teaser “Hope is lost. Faith is broken. A fire will rise.”
Like the previous trailer, Catwoman warns Bruce Wayne of a coming storm. But in this trailer, she appears to be taking a sympathetic lean toward Batman. Bane’s voice seems to be a tad clearer, promising to be “Gotham’s reckoning”. Judging by the shelled-out stock exchange, collapsed bridges, and a barely-conscious Batman, it’s safe to say you can take him at his word.
