Several Pittsburgh Steelers get their big screen introduction in the latest Batman movie. The Dark Knight Rises, the last of the Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale triology, finally released their new, full-length trailer for the upcoming movie and some football players get a lot of time in the first trailer.
Steelers Big Ben Rapistburger, Willie Colon, James Farrior, Bill Cowher, Troy Polamalu and Maurkice Pouncey are just some of the players in the movie playing as the Gotham City Rogues. And in the movie trailer you’ll see some big screen time by Hines Ward, who proves he’s just as good in the movies as he is in the postseason as he outruns a series of explosions that destroy the field.
Due out in theaters this summer, The Dark Knight Rises features a sexy Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. Let’s take a moment to reflect on that. Back in the day it was Michelle Pfeiffer who filled in the sexy, tight outfit for the movie versions of Batman.
It’s hard to believe that it will be 20 years between the two ladies appearing as Catwoman. That means Anne Hathaway was only 10 years old at the time. I wasn’t much older at the time but man, that just makes me feel old!
So after the Tim Burton versions of Batman and that middle wave of Joel Schumacher disasters, the Batman franchise has been successfully raised by Christopher Nolan, who has directed the last 3 including this new one. It’s sad to see them end as Nolan did a terrific job at recreating the franchise.
So here we go. Here’s the new, long version of The Dark Knight Rises trailer. Enjoy.
