Batman is not joining the Avengers — but the third trailer for Warner Bros.’ “The Dark Knight Rises” will debut May 4 in front of Disney/Marvel’s “The Avengers.”
Warner Bros. has set July 20 as worldwide release date for Christopher Nolan’s third Batpic. Cast includes Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Juno Temple and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The studio confirmed a report about the trailer, first reported by the web site www.Nolanfans.com. That site noted that Warner Bros. placed the third trailer for “The Dark Knight” before showings of Marvel’s “Iron Man” in 2008 and the final trailer for Nolan’s “Inception” in front of “Iron Man 2” in 2010.
