Watch: Possible New Viral Videos From ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Hit The Internets


A couple weeks ago we got our first look at the first official photo of Tom Hardy as Bane in the upcoming sequel film Batman: The Dark Knight Rises from a new viral campaign game from the film. This new viral campaign has been tagged #TheFireRises … and seems tied to a You Tube account by the same name that has been releasing short videos seemingly to promote the film. Click below to check out 2 videos that seem Bane-related from this new The Fire Rises viral campaign for The Dark Knight Rises.

The first clip looks to be a grainy news report from GCN (Gotham City News) about a breakout from Arkham Asylum:

The second clip seems to be surveillance footage from that breakout … you can hear the chant Bane mátalo, which is Spanish for Kill him, Bane:

It’s unknown if these videos are officially part of the Dark Knight Rises viral campaign or if they are just clever fan videos but one thing’s for sure … the next year is going to be chock full of these kinds of mysterious offerings. The Dark Knight Rises won’t hit theaters for over a year … let the games begin.

As for these videos … what do y’all think? Impressed?

    Wouldn’t be too surprised if this was for Batman: Arkham City, the video game. It’s coming out in October, seems more timely.
