Right now Avengers hype is at an all-time high as Marvel’s mega-movie crosses the finish line into theaters. Inevitably, talk is now turning to what Marvel Studios has allegedly done that DC/Warner Bros. has arguably not: built sufficient hype for their big summer tentpole film.
People are currently (at the time of writing this) mentioning The Dark Knight Rises in the same breath as the word “underwhelming” – but only for now. When the new Dark Knight Rises trailer is released in front of The Avengers next week, the talk will no doubt shift all over again. Or, you can scroll down and read about some recent Dark Knight Rises footage that was screened at CinemaCon this week, and possibly get that giddy Batman movie feeling right now.
