    I just saw the new trailer, looks amazing. Robin Williams is playing Hugo Strange. I'm not familiar with the later comics, what's Hugo's story?

    What? Hugo Strange is the villain in the Batman: Arkham City game but not in the movie. Are you sure you didn't see the games trailer? Where did you see this trailer?

    Now that you guys have seen the teaser, whats the verdict on the two people in the final shot?

    My initial guess were Catwoman (swaying her hips) with Bane walking behind her.
    Then others suggested it was Batman crawling or walking away from Bane.

    What's your guess?

    That's a tough call. When I first viewed it, I thought it might be Catwoman. But the more I watch it, the more I believe it's Batman walking backwards, away from Bane.

    Fairly sure it's Batman.

    EDIT: Some people have commented (on another site) that the chanting at the end sounds like the inmates from Arkham Asylum in the recent game. If that's true then it lends itself to the theory that they are going with some of the original story line of Knightfall, were Bane released all the prisoners to wear Batman down before he fought him. That would be really cool, if we get to see cameos of some of the random freaks Batman has in the comics.

    I'll make final judgement on the sounds when the HD version comes out, for the most part, I couldn't even tell what Gordon was saying in the end or could figure out the voice of the person he was talking to.

    Also, the tumbler & batpod makes their appearances.

    Kind of surprised they didn't use this opportunity to introduce a whole new Batmobile design.

    They might still but all that is really left is a batjet or batboat.

    I saw the official teaser; albeit a not very good quality version of it on youtube this morning. It's been taken down already. Robin Williams is Hugo Strange, Anne Hathaway is Catwoman/Bruce's Love Interest.

    I read up on the Batman wiki and it seems like he was an obsessed criminal psychologist who wants knows Batman's real identity and is bent on replacing him. In the trailer at least Robin Williams really pulls off the creepy, calculated villain vibe he did in One Hour Photo.

    Looks like they were right. It certainly doesn't look like Gordon in the trailer, but bits and pieces sounded like him.
    This would be extremely cool. I'm going to have to go home and re-read Knightfall, now.

    Is it the same vid in the link I posted? Because Hugo Strange isn't there and Hugo Strange isn't officially in the movie.

    It occurred to me that it could just be used for a flashback. I would be very surprised if they didn't try something new, if just for a new vehicle to sell toys around.

    Nolans never been much into product placements so if he doesn't envision a new vehicle, WB won't be able to do anything about it.

    But now that I think about it, I wouldn't mind seeing a traditional Batmobile. Then again this is what Bruce Wayne will be driving so he may not need a traditional Batmobile.
