The new trailer for 'The Dark Knight Rises' has been released and can be seen below in full.
The movie stars Christian Bale as Batman and also Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.
The film will also feature the lesser-known Bane, as the main evil character. Bane actually appeared in one other movie featuring the caped crusader, the 1997 film "Batman & Robin," but many big-time fans of the comics felt his character was stripped of depth and intelligence in that film.
Comic book fans anticipate that Christopher Nolan, director of "The Dark Knight Rises," will restore Bane to his former glory, portraying him not just as a thug with super strength but as a formidable opponent to Batman who is both strong and intelligent.
The Dark Knight Rises is set for release July 20, 2012.
