DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – “The Dark Knight Rises” stars Christian Bale as Batman as he battles a new foe.  It is the third Batman movie from Director Christopher Nolan, who insists this will be his last journey to Gotham.  Nolan used no less than 5 stars from his film “Inception” in this movie. See if you can find them.

Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron all reportedly auditioned and Jessica Biel even screen-tested to play Selina Kyle, but the coveted “Cat Woman” role went to Anne Hathaway.

Don’t expect any mention of Heath Ledger’s Oscar winning performance as The Joker. Christopher Nolan said he decided early on to NOT include The Joker, out of respect for Ledger’s memory.
