In the trailer, Selina Kyle takes center stage in the trailer as she dances with Bruce Wayne, played by Christian Bale. She warns, “There’s a storm coming,” and that “You and your friends better batten down the hatches.”

“When it hits you’re all going to wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us,” she whispers in Wayne’s ear.
