News: New The Dark Knight Rises Poster And Six Character Pics

The new (and final?) The Dark Knight Rises poster has been released to a reaction of overwhelming sighs from geeks throughout he world. It seems that WB’s marketing department had a half day and let the work experience kid knock out a quick Photoshop of Bats standing around looking moody. It’s very reminiscent of “Welcome To A World Without Rules” poster from The Dark Knight and a little bit lazy after the brilliant “The Legend Ends” broken batmask from before Christmas. And as my friend @BunchOfSteve pointed out, what’s with the batpaunch? Middle-age spread begins a little early in the superhero world, does it? Luckily, though, not everybody was slacking off at Warner Bros., so we get some considerably better character posters to look at.

These are the ‘RISE’ selection of Dark Knight Rises posters. Here we see Batman (Christian Bale) showered in rain and debris. Remind you of Sin City a little? Of course, this is just the poster, I’m not saying the hyper-stylised visuals of Sin City will be in the film. As we know, Christopher Nolan tends to keep things as real and practical as possible.

Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) in the rain/debris.

And Tom Hardy’s Bane.

Next up are “The Legend Ends” series of character posters.

Ah, this is more like it. Batman, standing heroically, keeping watch high above the city while it snows/explodes. And no beer belly, thankfully!

Catwoman looking serene sat upon the Batpod. It’s been funny reading the fans reaction to Anne Hathaway’s casting as Catwoman. It’s all very similar to the news about Heath Ledger’s casting as The Joker. I have absolute faith in Nolan, that he got the actor he wanted, and that Hathaway can and will do a fantastic job.

And finally, Bane stood atop one of his camouflaged Tumblers.

It’s a bit disappointing that the new and possibly final poster for The Dark Knight Rises could be so uninspired but the character posters do go a small way to making up for that. Let us know what you think down below.

Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises is the final part of his Dark Knight trilogy and hits screens the world over on the 20th July.
