More Catwoman, more Bane, more Alfred, more carnage. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will complete the Christopher Nolan trology starring Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, but after the overwhelming success of THE DARK KNIGHT (2008), can this third installment possibly live up to all of the hype? There's also the issue of two other MAJOR superhero movies coming out around the same time - Marvel's THE AVENGERS opens this weekend, and THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN in another month or so. The newest trailer (the third so far) for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is now here. Check it out below and leave your thoughts in the comments. I want so badly to love this, but I'm trying to not get overly-excited about it. After GREEN LANTERN, Warner Bros. needs a big screen comic book hit, and there's always safe money with The Caped Crusader. There's also been some speculation that Batman dies in this one, and there's more than a few moments in this trailer that could very well back that up.
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.
