After being forced to endure a bootleg version of The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer for the past week and having it continually pulled off YouTube and every other video sharing service known to man, an official version of the trailer has finally arrived online this week… on Facebook of all places. Personally I don’t see why Warner Brothers made us wait, as it’s not like people were paying to see the final Harry Potter movie just to see the first trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. After all this time, it doesn’t really feel like it was worth the wait.
Still, aside from the recycled footage from previous films, we do get an intriguing scene with Commissioner Gordon in a hospital bed pleading for the return of The Batman and a quick glimpse of Tom Hardy as Bane. Is it just me or does he look a little bit like Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Cobra Commander in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra? Anyway, I’m excited but this trailer isn’t giving us much to go on. Maybe that’s for the best though. The Dark Knight Rises hits theatres on July 20th, 2012; check out the official teaser after the jump and see what you think.
