Friday, August 24, 2012

McFarlane Toys’ is excited to offer piece of movie in true SportsPicks fashion. During The Dark Knight Rises trailer, fans were able to watch as Bane blew up a football field during a game between the fictional Gotham Rogues and the Rapid City Monuments.

The main clip shows retired 2-time Super Bowl champion (Steelers) and last seasons Dancing with the Stars champion, Hines Ward returning a kick for the Rogues. The field begins to collapse behind him as he races for the end zone, engulfing both teammates and would-be tacklers. The scene ends with Ward celebrating before finally turning to see the carnage behind him. The Dark Knight Rises' Hines Ward figure is depicted in a black and yellow Gotham Rogue jersey created by Under Armour ®, as seen in the film.


The Dark Knight Rises is the conclusion to the highly-successful Batman trilogy by Christopher Nolan. Based on the iconic DC Comics character, the story takes place eight years after Batman took the fall for Two Face's crimes. A new super-villain, Bane overwhelms Gotham City and forces the Dark Knight to resurface. The story also includes Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman).
