It’s hard to believe that after all the TV spots, trailers, featurettes, viral campaigns and the release of the soundtrack, Warner Bros has yet to release any clips of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’…until now. With the cast making the talk show rounds, it’s not surprising that they would also bring clips of their performances. We have three clips in all.

The first was released by Warner Bros and has John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) talking about the last time Batman was seen in Gotham next to a shattered bat signal light.

The second clip was aired last night on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ with guest Morgan Freeman. They spoke about his experience filming ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and he brought this clip of Lucius Fox (Freeman) introducing Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) to “The Bat.”

Lastly, on today’s episode of ‘Live with Kelly,’ Anne Hathaway (sporting a new pixie haircut) shared her clip of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle (Hathaway) at the Masquerade Ball. It’s an extension of the footage that has already been seen in the trailers.

With ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ only a week away from release, Warner Bros. is doing a great job in making sure the excitement for the film intensifies. I’ve almost forgotten about the other superhero movie with the red and blue lycra tights. How about you?
