New Trailer for The Dark Knight Rises to Debut with The Avengers
04.22.12 by BJSprecher
Batman is not an Avenger. In fact, the character is owned by a different company and exists in an entirely different "universe" of superheroes and villains (though Batman has "met" the Avengers on several occasions in crossover books). Nevertheless, the Dark Knight will be sharing the big screen with Earth's Mightiest Heroes come May 4th.
According to the WB411 Exhibitor Services website (thanks to NolanFans.com for the heads-up), a new trailer for acclaimed director Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, will debut attached to 2D, 3D, IMAX 2D and IMAX 3D prints of The Avengers.
The Dark Knight Rises was written by Jonathan Nolan from a story conceived by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer. Here's the synopsis:
When Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) stumbles upon a plot to destroy the city from within, Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) gets back into action as the Batman. Waiting for him is the mysterious Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) and Bane (Tom Hardy), a lethal adversary on a crusade to tear apart Batman’s legacy piece by piece.
The Dark Knight Rises also stars Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Sir Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Josh Pence as Ra's al Ghul, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate and Juno Temple as Holly Robinson and Nestor Carbonell as the mayor of Gotham City. It opens nationwide on July 20th.
