The Dark Knight Rises

New Delhi: The official trailer for the third and final installment of Christopher Nolan`s Batman film series, The Dark Knight Rises, has been released by Warner Bros.

Warner Bros started the film franchise in 2005 with Batman Begins, directed by Nolan, starring Christian Bale. Nolan also directed the 2008 sequel The Dark Knight with Bale reprising his role.

The cackling villain Joker played by late Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight will be missed most by the fans. The new villain in the third part is Bane played by Tom Hardy.

The film is scheduled for next year release.
