Bruce Wayne gets lectured by his doc in hilarious new TDKR trailer

Most everything we've seen from The Dark Knight Rises to this point has shown off the drama and action we can expect from Christopher Nolan's final Batman flick—but a new trailer shows off the lighter side of Bruce Wayne.

The latest bit of new footage is actually pretty funny, and has Gotham's former playboy (Christian Bale) going in for a checkup to determine his physical condition. Turns out, all those years of crime fighting have really taken a toll.

It's actually a pretty interesting angle, and you have to wonder if just sheer force of will can make up for two busted knees and a near-broken body.

Check out the new trailer below:

The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20.
