With the release of Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, just three weeks away things are beginning to hot up. With the recent announcement that Marvel’s Avengers Assemble is now the third biggest money making movie of all time, all eyes are now on The Dark Knight Rises and whether it can top the Avengers. Anticipation is certainly high for The Dark Knight Rises, but will it have the universal appeal The Avengers managed to gain, or will it be just too heavy for some? It is not long now for us to find out.
A new TV spot was released yesterday which features more new footage and puts the focus heavily on Catwoman (Anne Hathaway). It also features some rather amusing banter between Catwoman and Batman (Christian Bale). Check it out at the bottom of this post.
