Appearing last night on CBS’s The Late Show With David Letterman, Anne Hathaway introduced the fourth clip from The Dark Knight Rises, which features Selina Kyle being questioned by Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Officer John Blake about Bane and the whereabouts of Bruce Wayne.
Opening July 20, director Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises also stars Christian Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tale, Michael Caine as Alfred, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.
But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
