- The Dark Knight Rises Theatrical Trailer
The Batman films of the last decade have been phenomenal and amazing, and so are their trailers. After making "The Dark O" three years ago and getting back positive results from YouTubers, it was obvious even then that a follow-up was needed. Of course after using the Joker as the main villain and matching him to Alan Gabriel, nobody knew who the batch of costumed baddies would be until less than a year ago. Still, making Bane into Schwarzwald and Catwoman into Angel was much easier than anticipated; they are both pretty evil to begin with. Heck, if the Riddler was in this I'd have used Beck!
One problem I saw was the use of Big Duo the Megadeus. I didn't want to show it again from the last "Dark O" but then again it does go through a lot of changes in the show and in season 1 still had that face armor. Which brings me to another point of trying not to repeat any footage used before; a daunting task that gave me a headache but it managed to be clear of repeated footage. Schwarzwald deserved the Big Duo anyway, why shouldn't he pilot it? Otherwise I tried to use more clips of Angel doing spy stuff and just looking sexy, plus using that catty dialogue of hers (ha ha). And for that logo at the end, as before I thought to use some simple Photoshop effects (but then again nothing is simple in Photoshop!)
Can't wait to see the climax of the Batman saga on July 20th!
