Of course all the attention right now is on “The Avengers,” the highly-anticipated and extremely well-reviewed superhero flick that kicks off the 2012 summer movie season this Friday.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” opens July 3, followed by “The Dark Knight Rises” on July 20.

And if these brand new images in the latest trailer of the third installment of Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” trilogy are any indication, “The Dark Knight Rises” will not only be the best of the three superhero movies this summer, it could even top 2008’s “The Dark Knight” as the most gripping superhero epic of all time.
