The TV Marketing Campaign for TDKR has begun and it brings new footage from the new Batman film! The first two TV spots for the film popped up, I guess during American Idol and, other than Bane’s voice, the film really feels like it is starting to come together.
For me, the best part of the commercials is that we get an even better look at the Bat-Wing. There’s also some new footage with Selina kyle (Anne Hathaway) as well as Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine as Alfred.
Along with the stars I’ve already mentioned, the film features Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Liam Neeson, Gary Oldman, and Marion Cotillard. It opens nationwide on July 20th.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Along with the two TV Spots, the studio has also released six new images from the film:
