First peek at “The Dark Knight Rises”

Now then. Enough “Harry Potter.” Yesterday Warner Bros. posted the first official teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” (coming to theaters July 20, 2012), and it’s . . . well, a little underwhelming. Some of the images look to be from the previous movie, and most of it features Gary Oldman’s Commissioner Gordon, whispering urgently from a hospital bed to an unseen person (probably Bruce Wayne) There’s a quicker-than-quick look at a villain in a Hannibal Lecter mask (I think that’s Tom Hardy as Bane; forgive me, sometimes I’m a little foggy on my comic-book characters until I get time to study up); nary a sign of Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman. Frustratingly vague, or just intriguing enough?
