The moment all Batman fans have been waiting for is finally here, the first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s third and last Batman film titled: “The Dark Knight Rises.” Could have been a little more creative on the title in my opinion but I’m not about to question the ways of the great Christopher Nolan!
The Trailer first premiered during the previews of the “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2” midnight showing and was then released on the internet a few days later. Now when I first watched the trailer I thought: “Wow really? Thats it?” I’m not gonna lie I was expecting something a little more and I found myself not as excited as I thought I would be to see it. The more times I watched it, however, I found myself becoming more and more psyched up about the film.
When I think back to it, the trailer itself, is actually very well put together and does exactly what a trailer should do, make the audience ask questions that can only be answered by watching the film itself.
The trailer reveals a wounded/sick Lieutenant Gordon in a Hospital bed talking to whom I can only assume is Batman.
“How and why is Gordon on his death bed?”
A narration of Raz Al Ghul speaking in the beginning of the trailer.
“I thought Raz Al Ghul was dead? Why is he talking right now? Are they bringing him back?”
Bruce Wayne doing pushups in what looks like a jail.
“Why is Bruce in Jail? Did he get sent to Arkham?”
The trailer also reveals a short clip of the villain, Bane walking toward Batman and Batman looking as though he has had quite a beating. That is not what all the Buzz has been about however. In the last clip that I just spoke of, if you pause it and look in the upper right corner of the frame. You will see a figure standing there staring down at Batman and Bane. So then probably the biggest question remains, “Who is that man?”
Any way it is a very well done and entertaining trailer and I suggest everyone watch it at least once.
Oh, and for all you hardcore Batman fans out there, it is rumored that Christopher Nolan put in direct references from the comic book saga “Knightfall” in the Batman series. If your a hardcore Batman fan like myself, then I’m sure you all know what direct reference he is probably going to use!
