The Dark Knight Rises just can't rise fast enough, damn it. After our first look at Tom Hardy as Bane, Christopher Nolan's final film in the Batman trilogy now strikes back at the internet with two viral videos on YouTube.

The first clip, called Outbreak, is the both the longer and vaguer of the two, and appears to be footage of foul play at Arkham Asylum. Listen for the eerie chanting we've come to know so well in the other viral campaigns.

The second clip, shorter but sweeter, is called GCN and as you may have noticed from the picture above reveals that there's been a big breakout at Arkham Asylum. Sounds like Christopher Nolan's going back to Batman Begins for material this time out, and that Arkham's going to be a much bigger presence in the third film.

Watch. Speculate. Salivate. Enjoy.
