There's no stopping this anticipation. Feeding it further, is our sneak peek into the killer plot that Nolan takes on in The Dark Knight Rises.
Outcast, hated by the denizens of Gotham and made the sacrificial goat by the law enforcement. That's where we left Batman in The Dark Knight. This time, he's been whipped into shape and forced out of his voluntary retirement.
Enter Bane. A new mastermind who seeks to wreak havoc on Gotham. And yes, his plot too involves the breaking out of Arkham's notorious residents.
Clearly, the Police Department are outmatched and outnumbered. But before they are put in an uncomfortable spot where they need to request help from Batman, the caped crusader himself steps out. Does he save the day? We don't know. But from the trailers we can tell it's a work in progress.
The presence of Catwoman makes this one heady mix. We've always known her to be a sort of anti-hero who manages to earn the goodwill of Batman. And that's pretty much what she does here as she plans a heist on Wayne manor. It's about time there was some romance and passion involved. And the Catwoman-Batman equation keeps it edgy.
Mr.Fox too, returns to the fold. One can bet that the battle brewing on the silver screen is going to be amped up with gizmos that are going to find fans of their own.
Catch the film on June 20!
