New Trailer for The Dark Knight Rises Attached to The Avengers

Posted April 22nd, 2012 at 8:30 am

Warner Bros has announced that the third trailer for The Dark Knight Rises is set to play in front of The Avengers when it opens on May 4. That a trailer for a DC Comics property is attached to a Marvel film actually isn’t unprecedented – The Dark Knight had a trailer in front of Iron Man in 2008. Director Christopher Nolan also had Inception featured in 2010 with a trailer attached to Iron Man 2 so they’re targeting a large and apparently receptive crowd.

The Dark Knight Rises has featured two trailers so far – one a teaser and the other theatrical. The film is slated to release on July 20.
