Addressing a shadowy figure, he speaks of the evil that has returned to Gotham and pushes the need for Batman to return. Then we get a very brief glimpse of Tom Hardy as Bane as he faces off against Bale in the bat suit. (To top it all off, there's more of that uber creepy chanting we've heard on the website.)
