Bane Is Silly :P

Posted by Erik Henriksen on Tue, May 1, 2012 at 9:44 AM

The Dark Knight Rises' okay-but-not-particularly-thrilling ad campaign continues with a new trailer, in which Batman jacks Marty McFly's ride from Back to the Future II and Bane continues to look and sound like a dude camped outside the Rose Garden to attend a live taping of WWE Raw. I have little doubt Nolan will bring the thudding, visceral spectacle in this thing—that's what he does, and he does it well, even when his stories don't hold up—but as far as this summer's comic book cash-ins go? Batman's looking pretty anemic compared to everything the Avengers have to offer. And let's not even talk about how things are looking for poor Spidey.
