The promo features more footage of the film's villain Bane (Tom Hardy), who enacts havoc across downtown Gotham. In an exchange between Batman (Christian Bale) and Bane, the former remarks, "Why don't you just kill me?" To which the sinister Bane replies, "Your punishment must be more severe." The film, which also sees Anne Hathaway (Catwoman), Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox), Gary Oldman (Jim Gordon), Liam Neeson (Ra's Al Ghul) and Michael Caine (Alfred) reprise their respective roles, is released on 20 July.
