CHICAGO, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- Fans at Wizard World Chicago got a special treat in the form of a teaser for the next installment in the Batman series, “The Dark Knight.”

The much-anticipated sequel to “Batman Begins,” starring actors Christian Bale, Gary Oldman and Aaron Eckhart, will feature super villains the Joker and Two Face, a news release from Wizard World said Sunday.

The actors, along with screenwriters Jonah Nolan and David Goyer and DC Publisher Paul Levitz, led a Q&A session before launching into the sneak peak of the film.

The teaser was only shown once and most likely will not be seen again until the film hits theaters.

The trailer started with a view of a shadowed Batman standing in front of one of his bat-vehicles before flashing to Bruce Wayne and Alfred delivering the only lines heard in the teaser.

“Some people just want to watch the world burn,” says Alfred in the scene, before the camera flashes to Batman jumping into his new batpod motorcycle and driving off.

Wizard World is an annual comic book convention held in various cities across the United States.
