You didn’t really think that Warner Brothers was going to let Marvel have the spotlight for the entire week, did you? Just in time for the release of The Avengers, a new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises has been revealed online through a new viral campaign. It definitely gives us plenty of new footage to chew on, but it’s also surprisingly straightforward. There are no big money shots or in-your-face surprises here (with the exception of perhaps the Batwing), just a classy reassurance that we’re in for another thoughtful and gripping drama.
Ironically, Bane’s voice now seems almost crystal clear, to the point where it’s painfully obvious that it has been overdubbed. Let’s hope that all the complaints of muffled dialogue from the IMAX preview didn’t drive Warner Brothers too far in the other direction. Other than that, I don’t know if there’s too much to say about it. Christopher Nolan clearly isn’t showing us all of his cards, and at this point I don’t think he needs to. I’m looking forward to the inevitable The Avengers vs. The Dark Knight Rises debates that will be raging a few months from now. The Dark Knight Rises hits theatres on July 20th; check out the new trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
