There is now movie more anticipated in 2012 than The Dark Knight Rises – perhaps The Hobbit it up there as well – as it has been four years since a Batman movie graced the big screen.
It’s hard to believe that it was 2008 when we were all punching the air whilst watching The Dark Knight and now Christopher Nolan is back for what looks set to be an epic finale.
Yes, unfortunately, this will be the last time that Nolan directs a Batman movie and the final time that Christian Bale will be taking on the role of Bruce Wayne.
This time around Batman has his hands full with new villain Bane, played by Tom Hardy.
Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to their limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent’s crimes.
This is set to be THE movie of the summer and I smell another $1billion hit on the horizon!!
The Dark Knight Rises is released 20th July. Take a look at some more images from the movie:
