Warner Bros product licensee FilmCells has released the plot description, which will be included on an upcoming limited edition plaque containing strips of film.
As reported by Batman News, the description reads: "When Commissioner Gordon stumbles upon a plot to destroy the city from within, Bruce Wayne gets back into action as the Batman. Waiting for him is the mysterious Selina Kyle and Bane, a lethal adversary on a crusade to tear apart Batman's legacy piece by piece."
Warner Bros is yet to release an official synopsis of the third instalment in Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise, which will star Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne alongside Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy as Kyle and Bane respectively.
Producer Emma Thomas recently teased that Hardy's villainous Bane will be a match for Batman.
The Dark Knight Rises will arrive in cinemas on July 20, 2012.
