[UPDATE: It's finally officially online, click here for The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Trailer! ]

[UPDATE 2: It doesn't match the "alleged" description but The Amazing Spider-Man trailer is now online.]

Only one day after The Dark Knight Rises teaser poster appeared online, we’re getting a play-by-play trailer description of two of the most anticipated super-hero films of 2012.

Trailer breakdowns for both The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man have dropped online – and each of them sound like enjoyable teases that feature context for their respective stories as well as brief glimpses at the baddies the two heroes will fight.

If you attempt to avoid trailers (so as not to be spoiled at all) or don’t want to know any information about The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man trailers, it goes without saying that you should stop reading now. This article describes alleged shot-by-shot breakdowns of each of the highly-anticipated film teasers – and definitely contains MINOR to MAJOR SPOILERS depending on how much of blank slate you like to be when you sit-down in a theater.

The Dark Knight Rises Teaser The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider Man Trailer Descriptions [Updated]

The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer: Rumored to screen ahead of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2.

While it’s certainly going to be exciting to see what director Christopher Nolan has up his sleeve for the final film in his bat-trilogy, fans shouldn’t expect an all-out reveal of Catwoman and Bane – though it does sound as if the The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer provides actual footage from the film, unlike first trailer for The Dark Knight (which featured fresh Joker audio but no video).

Check out The Dark Knight teaser trailer below – just to get a sense of how Nolan approaches teasers. Reminder: This is the The Dark Knight (2008) trailer NOT The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer (details on the trailer for the 2012 blockbuster continue after the video):

While fans might be somewhat skeptical of just a trailer text-description for one of the most highly-anticipated films of next summer (given the amount of fan-fueled misinformation surrounding the film), the description was accompanied by a bootleg image from the trailer – featuring the film’s logo. The image certainly corroborates the authenticity of the description – but, here at Screen Rant, we don’t post bootleg images. So, if you’re dying to see the image (which is essentially the trailer-equivalent of the recent teaser poster logo), feel free to search the wilds of the Internet – after you check out the full play-by-play description below, courtesy of Collider reader, Dave:

Trailer opens with studio logos set on top of the blue flame from Dark Knight.

Start panning up some buildings, but to screen card. EVERY HERO HAS A JOURNEY.

Cuts to a shot from Begins with Bruce walking up to that Village when he’s looking for Ra’s

Screen Card: EVERY HERO HAS AN END

Ra’s voice over: If you make yourself more than just a man. If you devout yourself to be ideal. And you become something else entirely. A legend Mr. Wayne….A LEGEND!

Screen Card: THE EPIC CONCLUSION

Cut to Gordon in a hospital bed laying on his side. Looks to be in serious pain. Has A breathing mask on. Is talking to someone.

Gordon: We were in this together, then you were gone…….Now this Evil rises. The Batman…..HAS to come back.(all this is said in a very raspy voice, in much pain)

Bruce/Batman(its not shown who he’s talking to, so don’t know in which form Bruce is visiting him in. My guess would be as Bruce Wayne) : What if he doesn’t exist anymore?

This part is the hardest to understand in the entire trailer, I listened to it at least 10 times but the score is over powering here and Gordon is having trouble talking. It sounds like if says Humor me while trying to laugh. I might be wrong here, full disclosure.

During this quick talk we’re shown a shot of the bat cycle when it drives up the ramp from Dark Knight, Gordon destroying the Act Signal all cut in with the Hospital. As well as super fast flashes of Bane’s face.

Pan up crumbling buildings to reveal the teaser poster, the camera zooms to the white opening and on an all white screen the title appears. The score reaches a fever pitch before turning over to The chanting from the website.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

Fades to black and then we see Batman backing away from something, then Bane enters from the left side of the screen. Very quick shot then the trailers done.

If the report turns out to be accurate, the trailer (which is expected to run for 93 seconds) is managing a lot of story-threads, connecting back to the events of the first and second film – as well as introducing new bad-guy Bane (though it sounds as if we’ll have to wait to get a glimpse at Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman. It’ll be interesting to see how the teaser plays-out on the big screen but given the ominous conclusion to the trailer, it sounds as if Bane is going to be an imposing force for Batman to face-off-against – and offer the kind of formidable physical action we’ve seen in the comics.

The Amazing Spider-Man teaser trailer: Expected to debut at Sony’s Comic-Con 2011 panel – no doubt appearing online shortly after.

Unfortunately, The Amazing Spider-Man trailer report is less difficult to verify and offers a less-detailed play-by-play – allegedly written by a Comic-Con employee who got an sneak peek at the footage. However, should the report turn-out to be accurate, fans could have an equally exciting Spider-trailer waiting on the summer-reveal horizon.

According to the description, the trailer sounds like a mash-up between the recent Captain America: The First Avenger marketing (with stick-man Steve Rogers) and Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man trailer – which prominently featured the spider-suit and manhattan skyline (with, at the time, the twin towers).

Just for fun, check out the original Spider-Man trailer below. Reminder: This is the Spider-Man (2002) trailer NOT The Amazing Spider-Man teaser trailer (read-on after the video for details on the 2012 reboot):

Now for the alleged description of The Amazing Spider-Man teaser trailer, courtesy of MovieWeb:

Trailer opens with Peter Parker [Andrew Garfield] being beaten by bullies, one of which is played by Chris Zylka.

Shots of Dr.Connors [Rhys Ifans] being injected by a greenish fluid in a lab.

Shot of Parker being bitten by a spider,in his own house in what appears to be an attic lab.

Shots of Gwen Stacy’s face, Uncle Ben’s face and Aunt May’s face.

Shot of an alley with Ben [Martin Sheen] and Parker, then one of a dying Ben who utters ‘With Greatest power must come greatest responsibility, never forget that.’

Shot of Parker putting on the costume, camera angle from his back. He turns and is now atop The Empire State Building.

Goes black for a few seconds, we hear some monstrous sounds and cut to Connors’ lab where his foot transforms into a scaly one. Goes black and we hear roars.

Then we see a giant web with the title The Amazing Spider-Man. Coming Next Summer in 3d and Imax.

Like The Dark Knight Rises teaser report, there are definitely plenty of juicy details here – especially the claim that we’ll get to see a piece of the Lizard transformation (ala Beast in the X-Men: First Class trailers, presumably). Sadly, also like the Batman trailer, it sounds as though the leading lady, in this case Emma Stone (aka Gwen Stacy) gets short shrift – with only a single face-shot of the fan-favorite character.

It’ll be especially interesting to see how Marc Webb’s film differentiates itself from Raimi’s origin story – since, given the description in the trailer, it sounds as if a lot of familiar ground is being covered (Parker getting picked-on in High School and Uncle Ben’s death).

Follow me on Twitter @ benkendrick — and let us know which trailer you’re most excited to see.

The Amazing Spider-Man swings into theaters on July 3, 2012.

The Dark Knight Rises into theaters on July 20, 2012.

  1. There’s a scene in TDK that annoys the hell out of me and know one seems to notice: Bruce basically hires mercenaries to fly him to Hong Kong so that he can bring the accountant or whatever he was back to Gotham..here’s the thing: 1. He leaps over the yacht as Bruce Wayne and swims to the plane in full view of the Russian dancers AS WELL AS the pilots themselves. 2. He then dresses up as Batman, does his thing captures the dude and is ferried away by the same pilot who by then, I’m assuming, realizes that oh, i dunno..BRUCE WAYNE IS BATMAN!!!! The plane isnt automated, it’s clearly piloted..so I guess the pilot wasn’t allowed to look anywhere but at his instruments or straight ahead less he discovers Bruce’s secret. And no one notices this? Sloppy filmmaking. Period.

    • It could be me, however, I’d have to sa that the same alleged plot hole posted 3 times does not constitute “Plot holes you could drive the Tumbler through, disjointed editing, bad acting,” etc.

      • Try again: they’re two different planes.

    • Dude, why did you post the same message 3 times! Stop whining about TDK… we get it: you no likey the Dark Knight! Jeez man! Just get over it.

  4. For those not wanting to wait for the real high quality official release, the cam vid is here…. it probably wont last long.

    if this is not allowed please feel free to delete, but the write up was right, except for “HE MUST”…………..

    • much love bro

  5. Excited for The dark Knight Rises….. BUT NOT THAT DARN REMAKE OF SPIDER-MAN!!!! It’s like, if you wanted to do the Lizard, you cuold’ve done that in a SEQUEL!!!

  6. can someone pleeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaseeee send or post a link to that DKR trailer

    • woops sry didnt look up

  7. I watched the bootleg trailer of the Dark Knight Rises and the description in this article is spot on. It was a little blurry, but I swear the end is not batman backing off from bane, I think it looks like catwoman (the scene is very dark and the bootleg was bad quality) and bane attacks her. If that is the case I can’t wait to see it in HD!

  8. @Lph24k: never saw it. After having seen ‘Batman Forever’ it was more like ‘Fool me once…’ @James: further that that?! What more do you want? I mean, how the hell can you ignore something THAT blatant? No explanation at all…we’re just supposed to accept the fact Bruce Wayne hired a pilot to fly him to Hong Kong and NOT realize he’s Batman? Where did he change? Did the pilot NOT notice he picked up Batman with a prisoner…but no Wayne? C’mon. Or how about the Joker’s masterful bank heist in which he executes all his accomplices one by one EXCEPT those driving the other buses in the school caravan which he joins after robbing the bank? Or was he just CONVENIENTLY lucky that there was a gap to fit in said bus in the caravan. The fight scenes, again, too murky to tell what was going on, the bait-and-switch scene with Gordon and Dent was so confusing at times. Sometimes less is more. TDK had all the ingredients but fell flat in my opinion. WHYYY did Batman have to make people believe HE killed Dent? I mean, the Joker blew up a frickin hospital..i’m sure the public would’ve had noooo problem believing he killed Dent. Oh I know why: SET UP THE SEQUEL! And the whole bat-sonar scene with Q..triangulating millions of cell phone blah blah blah..ugh. God awful.

    • First of all.. Bruce Wayne did NOT hire the drug dudes that flew the plane or whatever. WHere is the logic in that? Either someone else did it or they did it anonymously. AND they were small time drug dealers I think, that were japenese or from Asia.. They might never have heard of Bruce Wayne, nor batman. Just think.. what makes more sense?

      And they said Batman killed Dent because they were on his trail (the police was already there and I think they saw him when he ran). It was the easiest solution for he was already an outlaw. A lot of people (police and fbi) already knew that the Joker was caught when this happened. It is more logical, than for batman to hide in the last minute and make people think it was the joker that finished Dent. And I don’t understand what was so awful with the sonar. You seem to nitpick on a lot of small stuff. I bet you just don’t like the movie cause it was Nolan who directed it. No shame in that.

  10. @theAvenger: I didn’t mean to post them repeatedly on purpose..but anyway why is it you can salivate over a frickin’ teaser trailer yet i’m not allowed to voice my displeasure over a film? It’s just an opinion ‘dude’ no need for rudeness.

  13. Maybe I’m way off here but it seems that Gordon is talking to Bruce in the hospital scene, more than likely as Batman about coming back, but what if hes talking to Bruce? Would that suggest he knows who Bruce really is?

  14. he says ‘he must’

  15. well now, seeing that spiderman peak, it only goes to show that some people will believe anything. That one was for spiderman 1 movie and the clip of the twin towers were taken off because of what happened on 9/11. So there may be a spiderman 4 but that was not the sneak peek to it.

    • the guy wrote that it was the 1st spidermans trailer. pay attention.

  16. If I was doing a trailer on the new Spider-man, I’d focus on everything thats different than the Raimi version. Gwen instead of Mary-Jane, the different spider bite scenario, mechanical web shooters instead of organic, etc. Id stay away from lines like great responsibility and great power.

    • Umm..That line: With great power comes great responsibility, is essential to the character of Spider-Man. That single line gives him reason for doing what he does. To not have it would not only be a bad idea but would be blasphemy and a great discredit to the character. They can do anything they want with Spider-Man, but that single line coupled with Ben Parker’s daeth, must always, and mean ALWAYS be in Spider-Man’s origin.

      • You know he’s just talking about the trailer not the movie, right?

  17. I watched, what was probably the leaked version (all of the subtitles were backwards but it was clear). I think Gordon is speaking with Batman in the hospital room. I believe he sounds more like Wayne because of the emotion in the scene, it’s causing him to let his guard down… Anyway, just a thought, suppose it isn’t Batman who Bane ‘breaks’… Just a thought. As far as this leaked trailer business is concerned, I don’t know anyone (except for those who run websites like this one) who would attend a film just to see a teaser trailer, especially when it’ll be out next week online. Trailers, and teaser trailers should be allowed to be passed on as soon as possible. I’ll never understand the film marketers of today. I’m sure they’ve got their reasons, but in my mind it doesn’t add up. I’ve only seen one Harry Potter film in my life (the first one), you do the math. If it wasn’t for the internet I probably would have never seen TDKR teaser… Stick a fork in me, I’m done.

  18. Powerful. As a matter of fact the feeling i got was dread. The last time i felt that kind of wickedness was when i saw the trailer for SEVEN (1995). I was expecting something a little more like the dk trailer(colorful). But a very interesting change here. It looks grungier more dirty. Filthy. Maybe this is why it reminds me of SEVEN. Either way i like the change in aesthetic. It shows me that Nolan is evolving with the material.

    This movie looks like it will feature a threat that has sunk the city into utter damnation and promises to destroy the special ops units and religion that keeps faith alive. Sent to his knees because of his foolish pride Gordon pleas for a banished hero to return before he, his family and everyone becomes what they were in the original… Without hope.

    So the tone is as dark as it could possible get. This trailer makes DK look like a slow ride to grandmas house. It is very ominous.

    The final shot previews a potential mega battle for the championship of Gotham.

    • Actually Batman and Gorden agreed for Batman to take the blame and be banished for what Harvey did so that Harvey’s work as DA wouldn’t be undone.

      • No i was saying in the future he is forced to his knees. I already know the story but thank you for stating the obvious.

  19. both of the movies are on my most watch list

  20. The trailer is banned on youtube if guys not seen yet see it in this Fb page don`t forget to like the page>> http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Dark-Knight-Rises/220285564673886?sk=wall

  21. we need a batman to not be so loud

  22. Iwant batman dark like tim burtons way better

  23. nolan universe is good but dont seem like batman over raided garbage except the joker

  24. I haven’t read through all the comments so I don’t know if this has been said already, but I saw the trailer and I’m pretty sure what Gordon said at the end was: “he won’t ever”, not “humor me”. I could be wrong, but just some food for thought

  25. what i got from the ending
    Bruce: “What if he doesn’t exist anymore?”
    Gordon: “He has to. He has to”
    thats what i got, and it kinda makes sense too.

    • Yah that does. I kind of thought he said.

      “He has to… “He has to.”

      But yours is closer to mine and i’m sure he said these words.Humor me sounds unlike something you’d say twice.

      • Someone posted earlier that it sounded like Gordon was saying “He must.” That is what it sounded like to me as well.

  26. I think he said “you must” possibly because Gordon already knows that Bruce Wayne is Batman.

  27. The part that was hard to make out when Gordon talks that you couldn’t understand, he says both, “He must…. You must.”
    Which leads to believe that he is talking to Bruce wayne about Batman and that he knows he is Batman.

  28. What Gordon says is, “He must, he must”….

  29. Sounds just like the first Spider-Man with Tobey Maguire. Just replace the words “Green gas” with “Green fluid”, replace “Goblin” with the word “Lizard”, and just slightly change up the wording of Uncle Ben’s “responsibility” speech, use “Gwen” instead of “Mary Jane”. Hey, we SWEAR, it’s not a “re-boot”, it’s gonna be different and fresh! LOL
