The teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises is out online. Aside from footage from prior movies and scenes that clearly won’t be used in the flick itself, there’s a badass shot of Tom Hardy as Bane and another of Batman backing away from Bane.

I’m stoked for the film, but I gotta admit: the teaser for The Dark Knight was much more exciting. Nevertheless, the additional casting of Tom Hardy as Bane and Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman will bring some interesting elements to the third movie.

The Dark Knight Rises comes out July 20, 2012.
