Selina Kyle (Hathaway), aka Catwoman, corners Wayne (Christian Bale) during a ball when all is calm in Gotham, so calm that the city’s hard charging Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) is being pushed out of a job.
But clouds are building on the horizon, very dark clouds. “You think this can last?” says Selina.
“There’s a storm coming…When it hits, you’re all gonna wonder how you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us.”
The trailer also provides a nice sequence of the evil Bane.
The clip opens appropriately enough with visions of good and evil. A young boy signs the National Anthem at a Gotham Rogues football game, as the evil Bane emerges from a tunnel, likely under the stadium.
The boy’s haunting signing provides a backdrop as the clip foreshadows Gordon’s ouster. The action stars when Bane leads a prison inmate rebellion and the Rogue’s field explodes.
Standing over a wounded Bruce Wayne, Bane rasps, “When Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die.”
The film is set to open in July 2012. Click below to see the trailer.
