Distributor Warner Bros. has released a brand-new trailer online for arguably the most anticipated film this summer, The Dark Knight Rises. In the trailer, which will play in theaters this weekend ahead of The Avengers, it appears Batman (Christian Bale) is seriously injured by his muscle-bound nemesis, Bane (Tom Hardy). In the comics, Batman’s back is broken by Bane in the “Knightfall” story arc, rendering him a paraplegic. The footage also shows Catwoman, played by Anne Hathaway, unleashing an ass-whooping on some bad guys, Bruce Wayne (also Bale) kissing Marion Cotillard, and Batman’s newest toy: a flying Bat-vehicle.
