To many people, Christopher Nolan’s 2008 rework of the Batman series, The Dark Knight, was a masterpiece. However, after the death of Heath Ledger (the Joker), many wondered if a follow up could really stand up to what many are calling the best Batman movie of the modern franchise.
Well, the trailer for the final film in Nolan’s trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, dropped this week and I’m impressed. The storyline looks darker than ever, and the addition of Bane as a villan (I’m glad they didn’t try to bring someone else in as the Joker) is proving to be a good look.
The Dark Knight Rises drops in theaters and IMAX in July.
