Final 'Dark Knight Rises' Trailer to Be Attached to 'Avengers'
The final trailer for DC's "The Dark Knight Rises" will be attached to another highly anticipated superhero film, Marvel's "The Avengers". A representative for Warner Bros. Pictures has confirmed that third trailer for the Christopher Nolan-directed Batman movie will be debuted ahead of the Earth's Mightiest Heroes film when it opens in the U.S. theaters on May 4.
The news was first broken by Nolan Fans, a website dedicated to director Christopher Nolan, which noticed the placement for the latest "Dark Knight Rises" trailer listed on Warners's exhibitor site. The fansite shared that the trailer will play on 2D and 3D screenings in both conventional and IMAX theaters.
Though DC and Marvel are known as long-time sworn enemies, this was not the first time a DC movie uses a Marvel film release to promote its film. Back in 2008, the final trailer for "The Dark Knight" was attached to the first "Iron Man" movie.
Bringing back Christian Bale as Batman, "The Dark Knight Rises" will open in theaters nationwide on July 20. Also supporting the movie are Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman. As for "The Avengers", the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner.
Meanwhile, as it gets closer to the release of "The Avengers", Walt Disney Pictures unleashed another clip of the much awaited ensemble movie. Being unveiled during a talk show on BBC One, the snippet features Ruffalo's Dr. Bruce Banner and Johansson's Natasha Romanoff having a sit down conversation. However, in the middle of the chat, Banner almost loses his temper and scolds Romanoff, leading her to point a gun at Banner.
