The much-hyped teaser trailer of the Dark Knight Rises released by Warner Bros has intrigued fans across the world as they eagerly wait for the movie to be released on July 20, 2012.

Based on the DC Comic character Batman and developed by Christopher Nolan, David S. Goyer, and Jonathan Nolan, the movie will be the third and final installment of the Batman series.

Some of the cast and crew of the movie include Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne or Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

The trailer shows Commissioner Gordon lying in a hospital bed, talking with either Batman or Bruce Wayne. He apparently pleads for Batman to return as evil has been rising.

However, there are no scenes of either Hathaway of other crew members.
