THE DARK KNIGHT RISES New TV Spot Highlights Banter between Batman and Catwoman; Also, a Previous Character May Return

     June 29, 2012


In recent updates for The Dark Knight Rises, we’ve memorialized the passing of Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), discussed Bruce Wayne’s (Christian Bale) strange absence from Wayne Industries and speculated on what exactly Bane (Tom Hardy) plans to do with that crazy looking weapon.  In this new TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises, we get to see glimpses of levity between Batman and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway), proving that the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy isn’t complete mope fest.  As a bonus, a new press release for the European premiere of the film on July 18th counted a particular guest in attendance that may have leaked a character appearance in the new film.

The Dark Knight Rises, also starring Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard, opens July 20th.  Hit the jump to check out the new TV spot and find out who else may be crashing the party.

Now, this is where the complimentary spoiler warning comes into play, because we have word via HeyUGuys that a certain actor is attending the European premiere.  Curious? Well, here’s the list of attendees:

Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Liam Neeson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine

The one that should jump out at you (especially because I bolded it) would be Cillian Murphy, aka Dr. Crane, The Scarecrow, as seen in Batman Begins and early on in The Dark Knight. Is Murphy just a respected guest of the filmmakers or does he have some small part to play in the epic conclusion? Time will tell!
