The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Garly Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.
Okay, so Anne Hathaway is playing Catwoman, Bane could be kind of cool, and the rest of the cast looks to return. But who the hell is John Blake and Miranda Tate? Are these new characters or are these from the comic books...

I guess they didn't want to go for the obvious old villains and use the Riddler or the Penguin--perhaps Nolan felt they were just too campy for his series.

Christopher Nolan indicated way back he wanted to showcase the non-mainstream villians. I have to say I'm a fan of both Nolan and Bale and can't wait until July 2012.

Anyway, Nolan's films are there own separate trilogy and interpretation. I think his films are the best, although Burton/Keaton were great. Bale is a mediocre actor, I don't like him much as Batman, but the films have still been very good.

Did you really call Christian Bale of all people a mediocre actor? He is easily one of the best actors workings currently.

Have you not seen him in the Machinist, the Fighter, American Psycho, or his other roles where he complete becomes the part?

Everyone has complained about Christian Bale's Batman but that is Nolan's Batman. He is being directed to act in that manner.

Teaser is ok. Gordon is the most intriguing part, but maybe that's just because Gary Oldman is so cool. I loved the last movie, but seeing this trailer, I'm more than a little afraid that Bane is going to come across as goofy.

He is very wooden in many roles. He does devote himself and his body to his roles, especially when it comes to gaining/losing weight, no doubt about that, but that is not the same as a performance.

His performances are amazing IMO. I agree with the above poster who said he is one of the best actors right now.

No, it isnt the same as his performance but his performances are incredible. He is very much like Johnny Depp and Daniel Day Lewis in that he becomes the role entirely and very few actors can pull that off.
