We haven't had one of these in quite some time, so I thought I'd bring it back. Feel free to edit any ideas into a video, I wish I could for this one, but I don't have proper DVD ripping software.

Throughout the trailer, we hear quotes from the Joker interrogation scene from the Dark Knight.

We see Jim Gordon in the hospital bed.

Joker: Does it depress you commissioner? To know just how alone you really are?

We see Scarecrow donning his mask from Begins.

Joker: You've changed things...There's no going back.

Scenes of Batman on the run from the end of Dark Knight.

Joker: They need you right now, but when they don't....They'll cast you out.

We see Bruce training with Ra's Al Ghul from Begins.

Joker: They're only as good as the world allows them to be.

We see shots of Two-Face, the reveal in Maroni's car and then with the Gordons hostage.

Joker: When the chips are down, these civilized people? Will eat each other.

We see the first shot of Bane, and then him lumbering towards Batman.

Joker: You see I'm not a monster.

Film's Title

Joker: I'm just ahead of the curve.
