It’s been a epic few weeks for Batman fans. First, they were mesmerized by the poster art for ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ then the teaser trailer for the third installment in the nouveau-Batman franchise leaked online.

Now, another goodie — the official release of the teaser.

The trailer was released Monday morning on the movie’s Facebook page, and arrives in blazing high-definition, unlike the shaky, amateur-shot clips that surfaced on YouTube this weekend (come on, guys – at least bring a tripod.)

In the clip, director Christopher Nolan gives fans a glimpse at new villain Bane (played by ‘Inception’ star Tom Hardy) and rambling detective Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman).

The film lands summer 2012.
