Hub recreates Dark Knight Rise trailer for Batman cartoon marathon

Coinciding with the Friday premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, the cable channel The Hub is airing a 10-episode marathon of Batman: The Animated Series, the beloved early-1990s cartoon that’s held up by a generation of fans as the gold standard for animated adaptations of comic books.

To promote the event, The Hub has created a teaser that recreates the trailer for the final installment of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy using clips from the show and the original voice cast. You can watch it below.

The marathon, dubbed “Batman: The Animated Series Rises” kicks off Friday at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT on The Hub.



A professionally done AMV for a official channel; Interesting. Also, whether it is being done by him, or a good imitator, it is awesome to have the Kevin Conroy voice saying those Batman lines, as well as the Catwoman lines. Bane…not so much.


P.S. I know he said he’s done after TDKR, but Nolan and Timm should totally team up for a new Batman series. PRETTY, PRETTY PLEEEEAAAASE!!!!!

Was that Michael Ansara as Bane??

That was pretty good actually gave me goosebumps something that none of the trailers for Rises has.
