Something this way comes. Based on this teaser trailer still who knows what. The chanting referred to in accounts of WB’s teaser site earlier in the year is still there which suggests (perhaps) that Bane is a little more than anyone expects – or it could be a high falutin’ Wrestling-style theme tune. There’s still a lot to answer but one thing is for sure – Batman is going mano-a-mano against Bane on some roof top somewhere.
Here it is. The Dark Knight Trailer for the new movie from the Christopher Nolan franchise. The Stanley Kubrick of blockbusters, Nolan has clearly pieced together a more coherent set of plot threads than previous Directors (Batman and Robin anyone) however this is a step up again from the Two Face / Joker combo of Dark Knight Returns. Catwoman, Bane and I suspect Robin Williams as Hugo Strange is blended in with the renegade storyline from the previous film and any personal plot line to throw in. However Selina Kyle makes up the love interest in this case and it looks like messrs Fox and Pennyworth (Freeman and Caine) are in their holding positions on this one. Nice to see the Scarecrow still representing a through line for the films. C’mon Nolan – this looks good….
…. or is it?
