I'm surprised how much prominence JGL has in that new trailer actually. Good on him if he's becoming a selling point, but I'm baffled about his role since he seems to be acting like a young Jim Gordon. Maybe he's the new everyman on the street? I don't recognize the character, and the last prominent original character--Rachel--had a not so nice fate.
I agree there's a depressing feel to the trailer, but I felt that was there in the last trailer too with that haunting rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. I feel like all the characters are very mortal. Even Bruce looks ill. I hope this isn't a bloodbath of beloved characters.
Now that I can understand Bane, he sounds like a Darth Vader-ized Ian McKellen.
