News: High Res The Dark Knight Rises Pics

Hot on the heels of The Dark Knight Rises trailer, which was downloaded 12.5million times in 24 hours (smashing the previous best set by The Avengers in October), Warner Bros. have let loose some high-resolution pictures from the film so we can get a closer, better, look at Bane and The Batman.

Here’s the image we first saw as the cover on the exclusive subscriber edition of Empire. You get a good look at the tubes running from the mask over the top of Bane’s (Tom Hardy) head.

Bane in his sheepskin jacket. He’s stood on a camouflage painted Tumbler. The pic in his hand is of  Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart). Could he be revealing the dirty secret that kept Gotham from falling into a cesspool of crime after Dent’s death?

Here’s a good look at the kit Bane wears. It’s pretty much how you’d imagine a modern-day mercenary to suit up, isn’t it? Combat pants, body armour, belts, straps, and buckles. Interestingly, only his right hand is gloved. Oh, and see the pimples/pockmarks on his arms. Is that a reaction to the gas he inhales? Or are we being really mean and pointing out a skin condition suffered by Mr Hardy?

Bane goads Batman. You get a good look at the scar running down Bane’s neck in this shot. Notice the canister on the left side of his lower back. Could that be where he stores the pain-relieving gas? Also, where are they? Underground sewer? A dam?

And here’s Batman (Christian Bale) playing with his new toy. What the hell is it? Any speculation here would be very helpful as I have no bloody idea.

Ah, I know what’s going on the this shot at least – Batman rides the Batpod. Um, that’s about all I can say, I think.

These pics aren’t anything we haven’t seen before but the extra quality does help. Click on them and check them out. You’ll see what I mean.

UPDATE: Some more pics have been released! Let’s take a peak.

Here’s a rare shot of director Chris Nolan in front of one of Bane’s Tumblers.

We have a Tumbler being followed by Bane’s Army. A great shot of the church framed between, and towered over by, skyscrapers.

And to finish, here’s Catwoman on the Batpod. I don’t think it’s the lovely Anne Hathaway riding it, it appears to be her stunt double.
