Bootlegs of The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer started appearing online last week after Warner Bros. attached it to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. They were swiftly removed, but now the studio has released the teaser online in HD for all to see.
The teaser is mostly made up of footage from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, with some new shots of Tom Hardy as Bane and Gary Oldman’s Lieutenant Gordon thrown in.
The Dark Knight Rises is set for release on July 20th, 2012 and filming is still taking place. Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman will reprise their roles alongside Anne Hathaway (Catwoman), Tom Hardy (Bane), Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
