Forget all those silly trailer descriptions and bootlegs, WB has finally gone ahead and given us the real deal. The studio has just released the first teaser trailer (via their Facebook page) for their upcoming film, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, and while it may have been spoiled for those who read the description that hit the web earlier this week, it’s still an epic piece of tease.

Featuring a blend of footage from the previous two films to a handful of shots from this new film, we are privy to a pair of interesting moments. First, much of the trailer is narrated by Commissioner Gordon, who is bedridden. This is interspersed with blurry shots of Bane’s face, until we finally get the reveal of Tom Hardy as Bane for that brief, but bloody glorious moment.

Personally, despite the handful of flaws that have hindered both of Nolan’s Bat-films, this is easily the most talked about film of 2012, and will be even more talked about from here on out. The cast is amazing, and the final shot of this trailer, Bane hunting down his prey, is just awesome. Yes, this trailer shows little to nothing from the film, but hey, it’s still a pitch perfect teaser.

    I like it. Knowing nothing from the actual story, it’d look like Bane actually broke Gordon and not Bats himself.. poor Gordon might’ve been bait
