May 01, 2012, 9:27 AM — As a comic-book geek and fan of superhero movies, I was less than underwhelmed at the first trailer for this summer's "Dark Knight Rises", the conclusion of Christopher Nolan's take on Batman. So much so that it got eclipsed by the other superhero movie of the summer, this Friday's Avengers film from Joss Whedon and the folks at Marvel.
But this third and final trailer for Dark Knight at least gives me some more hope for the movie - this is what most fans are expecting to see when Batman takes on Bane and Catwoman.
The movie release date of July 20 also seems to help the film get some space between it and The Avengers - by mid-summer, people will be ready for another superhero film to get them through the rest of the season.
