Christian Bale makes one thing clear in a new trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises,” don’t piss off Batman. You know all hell is going to break loose.
That’s the uptake of a new trailer for the epic film, the fourth so far to tout the widely anticipated final chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Batman series.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine all make appearances in the 2:14 trailer.
Wayne, the billionaire who becomes Batman to avenge the death of his parents, looks totally down and out when he meets up with his trusty manservant Alfred Pennyworth, played by Michael Caine.
“I’m not afraid,” he mutters. “I’m angry.”
Batman’s arch nemesis Bane, played by Tom Hardy, also gets a prophetic line. As he stares into Bruce Wayne’s eyes, the mogul asks, “Who are you?”
I’m Gotham’s reckoning,” he says with a heavy breath.
Toward the end of the clip, Wayne is back to his old form. He’s scooped up Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), his tech wizard, who looked homeless. And Batman is back in business too.
“The Dark Knight Rises” hits theaters on July 20. In the meantime, check out the clip below.
