Dark Knight Rises trailer done with Animated Series footage

Hub Network promotes animated marathon in unique way

In honor of Batman week (got your tickets yet?), we present you with another cool Batman mash-up. The Hub TV network (home of My Little Pony, Pound Puppies and other Hasbro-oriented programming) has taken footage from the Batman: The Animated Series, and edited to look like one of the trailers from this Friday's "Dark Knight Rises" movie. Trust me, if you remember one of the original trailers of the film, this will make sense. The footage is used to promote the network's Animated Series marathon, which begins on Friday, July 20, at 4 p.m. Eastern.

Of course, most people out there will be in the theater watching the movie all day on Friday. Oh yeah, DVR!
