There comes a time in every superhero fan’s life when he looks at a character and just stands in awe. I am a Superman fan. Have been always and always will be, but this new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises looks so incredibly good that–gasp!–I think it’ll rival, if not outdo, The Dark Knight and any other superhero flick that came before it. Except maybe Watchmen, but that’s a whole other thing. I know they used part of the Bane-breaks-Batman’s-back storyline from Knightfall. I also recall seeing thumbnails of the graphic novels inspiring this flick and Batman: The Long Halloween was on there. These are incredibly good stories and doing an amalgam of them–plus the various plot points from the previous Bat-flicks–is genius.
I mean, c’mon! Look at this trailer!
