The Dark Knight is Waiting in the Wings

So, are you tired of super hero films yet?

The Dark Knight hopes you're not. Although with Avengers still doing great at the box office and Spiderman about to be unleashed, many are wondering is there enough summer movie season enthusiasm for yet one more comic book adaptation made into a movie.

However, the previous movie which set up this final in Christopher Nolan's trilogy of films he has made with Batman, was the third highest grossing film of all time and this last chapter looks to pick up right where he left us and anticipation is high.

As IMdb reports:

Christopher Nolan seems to have entered that phase of his career called “He Can Do No Wrong.” Fans were salivating even before filming began, thanks to the phenomenon that made The Dark Knight the third-highest grossing movie of all time (and the highest-grossing one movie not directed by James Cameron). The “Occupy Gotham”-esque storyline makes the movie more prescient than ever, Christian Bale is coming off an Oscar win, Anne Hathaway slinks in as Catwoman, and the rest of the movie is a mini-Inception reunion, with Tom Hardy (Bane), Marion Cotillard (Miranda Tate), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (John Blake).

The official web site has some really cool stuff to look at and tease you into a frenzy waiting for this movie to come out. There are trailers and movie posters that will make you want to see this film even more however you will have to wait until July 20 for the release date.

And unlike the Avengers and other summer films, this movie is opening world wide that weekend and not going fore the early release in Asia trying to get a jump on publicity, hype and sales.

But the press blitz has already started and as Batman News reports, magazines as well as a myriad of posters have been released. Take a look at the Empire Magazine photos which they say:

This is almost becoming too much! Hot on the heels of all the posters, the exclusive photos, and TV spots comes new magazine covers and photos. Batman and Catwoman will grace the cover of Empire magazine, which goes on sale May 31st. Inside will be a massive 23 page preview of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, and tons of new photos. Empire has uploaded 4 of those photos online, check them out in the gallery!

So, we ask again; are you ready for another Super Hero film? We certainly are and can't wait for this treasure to come out and only hope that it lives up to the other two films. But we sure are going to miss Heath Ledger's Joker, that loss may be too much for the franchise and how can anyone step into those shoes.

However, we said the same thing a long time ago about Jack Nicolson so who knows?
