Ladies and Gentlemen: The Dark Knight Rises‘ Third Trailer
And Fansplosions Abound
Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to The Avengers. I love the fanbase that’s risen around it and its creative contributions to my daily life on the internet. I’ve generally enjoyed all of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe outings to the theater, even if the individual films might not have been the most, ah, hallowed additions to the genre of superhero movies (Iron Man 2 and Thor, I’m looking at you and giving you a comforting pat on the shoulder). At the bare minimum I’m expecting a fun ride out of The Avengers, and if early reviews are a good indication, I’m going to get that and more.
But the part of me that is a Batman fan first and foremost among all of my other geek interests wants everybody else to shut up because there’s a Batman movie coming out. That part of me has somehow decided that the reason we haven’t had a media blitz for The Dark Knight Rises yet is because of The Avengers. I know, it’s petty jealousy, but what are you gonna do?
Watch the following trailer, I guess.
