Wow is all there is.

With all eyes on Christopher Nolan to find a fitting ending for the massive phenomenon that he’s turned into an even more massive phenomenon, the director and everyone involved seems to have pointed beyond the bleachers and out into the parking lot with this full length trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. It’s got Christian Bale getting existential as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane looking ominous with a bomb and Anne Hathaway representing the unwashed masses as a masked Selina Kyle.

In fact, it’s got enough red meat to make any old fan happy – and to prove that Nolan and company are not shying away from the greatness of their challenge.

The main question with the marketing, and with this trailer specifically, is whether Batman will die by the end of this one. And why shouldn’t he? Nolan doesn’t have anything to lose here. Neither does Warners. He and his team can do just about anything creatively, and the money is still going to be dumped out on their doorstep.

So why not shoot for the moon? Why not aim for those bleachers? Why not blow up a football field while Hines Ward runs away without realizing the ground is shaking?

But seriously, this thing looks so damned good.When the legend ends, I have a feeling the movie’s own saga will just be beginning.
