The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Trailer & Thoughts

This week the world finally gets it's first look at the upcoming sequel to The Dark Knight. The Dark Knight Rises will be the final entry in the Christopher Nolan Batman series. Check out the teaser trailer below and I will give my thoughts below.

Thoughts: I think this teaser trailer did exactly what it was suppose to do. The trailer teases the hell out of you and raises so many questions. First question is why is Commissioner Gordan in the hospital? Does Gordan know Bruce is Batman? "We were in this together, then you were gone. Now this evil rises. The Batman must come back." Bruce: What if he doesn't exist anymore?" Gordan: He must...he must. I feel like Gordan is encouraging Bruce to go back to being Batman. He's trying to tell Bruce that Batman is necessary. Then we see the symbolism of Gotham crumbling. I this not only symbolizes that Gotham is going through a dark time, but also the end of the series. Finally we see Bane walking up the steps to an exhausted Batman. Batman looks like he's just got through fighting a ton of guys. Also if you look closely you'll see someone is a hostage in the background. Who can this hostage be? Also Ra's Al Ghul narrative from the first movie, makes me wonder if a Batman will die in this film. Usually people die in order to become legends in the eyes of the people. How will Selina Kyle play in this movie?What about Ra's Al Ghul? Finally I would love to know what was being chanted in the background of this trailer? Needless to say the trailer did it's job by raising many questions. I can't wait to see what will happen in the upcoming months.
