The latest leak for the new The Dark Knight Rises doesn’t feel like a promotion at all, not in the way fans are eating up any and everything that has to do with the final installment of writer/director Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the caped crusader.

The images are dark, the music is an eerie piano anthem, and the hero is a disgraced man whose face is bloody and beaten. The Dark Knight Rises is no Avengers. You’ll soon find out when you watch this behind-the-scenes look at how to make a superhero movie as villainous as it gets.

With this featurette, audiences discover the final chapter in the Christopher Nolan Batman movie series to be his largest challenge. Known for his twisted psychological thrillers such as Inception, The Prestige and Memento, this series of Batman movies has been somewhat of an obsession to the writer/director.

“Chris was able to up the stakes for this movie,” says Anne Hathaway, who stars as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.

Hathaway’s not the only newcomer to the Dark Knight series. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays John Blake, and Tom Hardy plays Bane, a villain so maniacal, you’ll barely see his face until the movie comes out July 20.

The Dark Knight Rises proves to be anything but ordinary.

Is that good or bad? For fans, it’s been an emotional ride ever since the first of the dark series, Batman Begins, hit the big screen. That’s when we first saw Christian Bale as the Bruce Wayne/Batman character.

In that film, we saw Batman trained by a stealthy Liam Neeson and then turned upon as he discovered the difference between poor and rich. In the sequel, The Dark Knight, we saw a villain so devious, Heath Ledger won the Best Supporting Oscar for his portrayal of the character. Now, in this third and final film from Nolan, The Dark Knight Rises, the secrecy is so top, the only thing this 13-minute featurette tells us is that things are nothing but rosy for the caped crusader.

You have been warned.
