It's not as long as the hilarious "The Lion King Rises" mashup trailer, but YouTube user xNick1718x's blend of Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited and Batman: Under the Red Hood clips is still a fun way to review the first trailer for this summer's The Dark Knight Rises. One positive side effect of the trailer is that it kind of elevates animated Bane -- however briefly -- from his almost pure bruiser characterization in most animation... at least in my Venom-addled brain. Though we'd like to see a longer version cut to the film's longer trailer, this is as good a place as any to start. Compare The Dark Knight Rises trailer, animated-style to the original after the jump.
