"The Dark Knight Rises" trailer is here. You know this by now. We've already told you some of the facts you can glean from this latest teaser, as well as what we're looking forward to from the next trailer, but hey, color us obsessed — we just can't look away from this thing!
As a testament to that fact, MTV News' Eric Ditzian and I sat down to give the "Dark Knight Rises" trailer a closer look, pouring over every single detail that we possibly can. Click the video for our trailer commentary!
We touched on a lot of the same points that I focused on in my previous "Dark Knight Rises" trailer highlights piece, but there are two big points that I took away from my second (okay, fifteenth) viewing.
One: while we're all understandably distracted by the awesomeness that is the Bane and Batman fist fight, we (or me, at least) have neglected to observe a third party in that scene. Just past Bruce Wayne's shoulder, you can make out the image of a third, unidentified person. Who is this guy? Another foe that Bats has to face after going toe-to-toe against Bane, or, worse, while he's fighting the Man who Broke the Bat? Or is it a friend, someone on the sidelines looking to help the Caped Crusader in his latest showdown?
That leads me to my second big takeaway: that even for a minute-and-a-half teaser that doesn't show you too much brand new material, there's actually a lot to pick apart in the first "Dark Knight Rises" trailer. Eric and I did our best World's Finest Detective impression, but I'm sure we missed a bunch of things here and there, so let us know in the comments section and on Twitter what you find!
