Each new glimpse at the highly anticipated movie brings much reactions and commentary. Here’s what MTV News observed:
“So much has been made of the physical threat that Bane poses to Batman, but we haven’t seen them engage in fisticuffs until the new trailer. A longer version of the shot from the first trailer, their short bout in the latest preview finally gives us a glimpse at what a Batman vs. Bane fight actually look like, and it’s brutal. Fans have speculated that this may not only be the final film for Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale, but also for Bruce Wayne, as the trailer seriously implies that Bruce will not survive the entire film. “
From Celebritology 2.0
“Okay, yes, there are several explosions in this trailer and snippets of what appears to be a potentially killer fights involving Catwoman (Anne Hathaway), Batman and Bane (Tom Hardy). But what strikes me, and what distinguishes Nolan’s films from other superhero movies, is their craftsmanship and emphasis on human drama. It’s not the sight of a bridge collapsing that compels me; it’s the image of young children on a school bus watching it fall.”
As noted. the movie arrives in theaters on July 20, 2012. Rounding out the cast are Anne Hathaway as Catwoman and Tom Hardy as the villain Bane along with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine.
