As the trailer shows, it looks like there’s barely any crime happening on the streets of Gotham anymore, which is surprising as Batman is retired. The peace doesn’t last long though as Bane apparently leads some sort of rising of the underworld. Also, notice that Bruce seems to be leaning on his cane, I wonder how he’ll be fit enough to return as Batman.
Furthermore, the fun banter shown here between Lucius Fox and Bruce Wayne is always great to see and assures us that the film won’t be totally dark and grim, like previous trailers made it seem.
I’ve been avoiding the TV spots so far but I gave in to this one and really, the movie looks fantastic. I mean, did anyone else get goosebumps when Bruce told Mr. Fox to get him back in the game?
