The new video teaser for Christopher Nolan's superhero sequel highlights the relationship between Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) and Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), a Wayne Enterprises employee who provides Batman with his high-tech weaponry.
"These conversations used to end with an unusual request," Fox says. "I'm retired," Wayne replies.
The TV spot, released through Coming Soon, also shows Batman piloting flying craft "The Bat".
Warner Bros recently debuted a series of banner posters to promote the final film in Nolan's Batman trilogy.
The Dark Knight Rises will debut in UK and US cinemas on July 20.
