The Dark Knight Rises suddenly looks like a blockbuster

That might be a strange statement to make about a film that will surely be a big hit at cinemas worldwide, but quite frankly- before the newest trailer hit the net, I wasn't too impressed.

As a massive fan of Batman, I seriously thought that Christopher Nolan's swan song as director of the franchise was going to be a bit of a stumble for him. There was the whole 'what the hell is Bane saying' debacle, some sketchy story points (does Bane break the Bat's back? Why 8 years later?), and the general feeling that TDKR could just flat out not be as good as the second installment- the epic The Dark Knight.

I've officially changed my mind.

Warner Bros might very well head for a reboot after this to better get the franchise in line with other DC Universe films for the inevitable Justice League movie (and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping for just that) but one thing's for sure- this interpretation of the Batman is gonna go out with a bang.
