the dark knight risesWho would win Batman or The Avengers?!

That’s easy – the Caped Crusader!

The second trailer for The Dark Knight Rises smashed the previous iTunes download record held by the Marvel Studios trailer for The Avengers.

Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman film saw over 12.5 million downloads through iTunes, compared to The Avengers which had 10 million in October.

Judging from traffic and the sheer number of posts out there on the internet, it seems as if The Dark Knight Rises is the most anticipated film of 2012 by far. Makes sense as the previous two were just that good. We’ll see if The Avengers can even come close on May 4th, 2012!

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th, 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christian Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred, Juno Temple and Josh Pence as a young Ra’s al Ghul.
