While the world currently raves about Marvel’s The Avengers, the DC side of the comic book world is getting set for the conclusion of the magnificent Christopher Nolan interpretation of Batman in The Dark Knight Rises. And this new trailer shows why.

Things are looking pretty grim for Batman in this short trailer. Tom Hardy as Bane seems to be a truly menacing – and devastating – nemesis for Gotham’s hero, and Anne Hathaway as Catwoman looks to wipe away the crime against cinema that was Halle Berry.

Fortunately, we only have two and a half months to wait before the release date to find out if he survives.
