We are only a few short weeks until The Dark Knight Rises debuts on the big screens, and the anticipation for Christopher Nolan’s return to the Batman universe is building quite rapidly. To further the mouthwatering, Warner Brothers has been releasing shorter TV Spots instead of extended trailers, as to keep the spoilage to a minimum.

The new trailer makes great use of her footage, while giving us an additional glimpse at the relationship between Batman and Catwoman. Teamwork for the win, apparently:
Over at /Film, they ran across a list of actors attending the European premiere, and at least one of the names listed is taken as confirmation that a certain character will be returning in TDKR. The names of the attendees:
Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Liam Neeson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine
You may have noticed Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy, both of which stared in Batman Begins, the first journey in Nolan’s Batman trilogy. According to rumors, one of those two will be in the third installment, and it’s not Liam Neeson, which means, if accurate, we can expect to see another appearance from Murphy’s Scarecrow, something I find quite acceptable.
Another thing that’s acceptable? Anne Hathaway in Catwoman gear:
July 20, folks. July 20.
