2012 Summer Blockbuster Preview: 'The Dark Knight Rises'

Veteran actors give heft to latest 'Batman' film

The Dark Knight Rises (July 20)

The most grownup of all the superhero franchises is back, and although Batman himself, Christian Bale, is just 38, he’s surrounded by a who’s who of veteran stars, including Liam Neeson (59), Gary Oldman (54), Morgan Freeman (74) and Michael Caine (79). Gotham City is being terrorized by a bad guy named Bane (Tom Hardy) who, among other things, blows up the burg’s entire football team in mid-game (in the movie’s trailer, at least, running back Heinz Ward still scores!). Batman returns from exile just in time to foil Bane … we hope!
