Tease Me, Baby! - The Dark Knight Rises

NOTE: This article was originally posted by me on TheWebsiteOfDOOM.com

We seriously can't get away from the trailers this week. In fact there have been so many tasty looking movie trailers that it's taken three of us DOOMsters to cover them all. Thanks to Sharp-O and Albert for their takes on GI:Joe 2 and MIB3. But arguably the most anticipated trailer of all the ones we've covered this past week would be this one for The Dark Knight Rises.

Christopher Nolan is pretty good at keeping control of what information is leaked about the film, so far we've just seen the odd on-set picture or two and very little about the plot has been divulged. What we do know is that Bane, Catwoman and Batman will all go head-to-head...to-head.

I think that's as much as we need to know really. Nolan has done such a great job so far that confidence is beyond high for his swan-song with the franchise.

On that note: Lets take a look at this trailer.





- Ouch

You know, in hindsight, the "Demolish" the opposition sign on the left is a bit harsh.



C'mon guys, that's just mean.

- The Second Greatest Harvey In History

Next to Harvey Kinkle, naturally.



The talk in the scene about getting rid of Gordon is interesting. It seems Batman isn't the only good guy with difficulties in this film.

- Whisper Pussycat, Tell, Tell!

Hathaway's Catwoman will be an interesting part of this whole story. She doesn't obviously fit into the story line right now, in my mind.



But she seems to be talking a bit like a Robin Hood type figure so her place in this fight between Batman and Bane could cause a lot of trouble.

- This Place Looks Cool

It gives me a Ra's Al Ghul sort of feeling. Possible full circle stuff?



I have no basis for this reasoning. Just a feeling.

- Holy S%!@



Bloody hell.

- ...lol wut?

Sorry? I need you to speak up. I didn't quite catch that.



I really hope that this won't be happening all the way through the movie, but Hardy's voice for his Bane portrayal is a little tough to make out.

There is so much going on in this trailer I could go on even more but I'l spare you my ramblings. This looks cool. I want to see it. You want to see it. It's going to be a long wait until next summer.
