New Bane Teaser Poster for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

     December 10, 2011


With all of the momentum that Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises has been gaining around these parts the past few days, it’s only fitting that Warner Bros. would continue to fuel the fire by sending over a new Bane teaser poster from the pic. Given that the film is still seven months away from release, I would imagine we’ll be seeing plenty more teaser one-sheets pop-up (ala The Dark Knight). In the meantime, this new sheet in addition to the original teaser poster from the film should be enough to tide me over.

Check out the new poster after the jump. The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Morgan Freeman, and Cillian Murphy. The film hits theaters on July 20th, 2012. Also, in case you missed them, be sure to check out our spoiler-free recap of the film’s six-minute IMAX prologue and the film’s initial viral marketing campaign.

Here’s the new teaser poster that Warner Bros. sent over [click to enlarge]:

    Holy Shit that’s fucking awesome Nolan is indeed gonna make BANE 2 break the BAT

  • Dare Devil

    Holy Shit that’s fucking awesome Nolan is indeed gonna make “BANE” to break “BAT”

      My thoughts exactly. I think those that are familiar with Batman comics have a better feeling than anybody where they are heading with this. Don’t want to elaborate as much as to not risk spoiling it but it has my interest…

      As far as the comments on the Bane mask, i think they could’ve gone with a better design as well. Not necessarily the exact traditional route but at least something different to this design. The mouth piece looks like a Spider…

        Its not batman thats gunna get broken, its Gordon. Remember the teaser trailer where he’s in the hospital. Banes gunna break his back and Batman’s going to be furious!

    • jazzy jace

      DD, we think Bane will break the Bat (I want that, too); but it’s more a case of the film’s 8 year storyline where Bruce is battle weary from Gotham PD and the criminal element. This poster is a case of Bat’s getting his ass kicked, for now.

    First!!!!!! looks fucking amazing

  • Hunter

    Well this blows the spiderman one out of the water

  • Keep It Close

    After having been disappointed with most of the news for TDKR, including Bane (his mask and coat look silly and deviate too much from the comic) and pretty much everything else (Catwoman, Batwing, title, teaser trailer), I am happy to say that this poster has alleviated some of my fears. If the movie goes in the direction implied by this poster, then I may be happy with the comics that they are sticking to.

      Maybe you should read some spoiler free articles talking about how absolutely amazing the 6 minute prolouge was to The Dark Knight Rises. Every article I read said it far exceeded their expectations and that Tom Hardy’s Bane was truly menacing. That alone should take away all doubts my friend.

      • Keep It Close

        It appears that you’re right. I am hoping that it amazed both hardcore comic fans as well as casual Batman movie fans because far too often movies are lauded by movie fans, but despised by comic book fans. But I will assume that such praise means that it will be loved by everyone except Armond White. :)

    • Disnywhite

      Seriously, you’re worried about the mask and the coat? The costume from the comic looks good in a comic, but would be positively and undeniable moronic looking in a realistic setting. It’s just like when those idiots complained that the Transformers deviated too much from the cartoons. Grow up. On one hand you have people complaining that TDK isn’t respected enough and therefore doesn’t get Best Picture consideration, but the same dolts want Bane to look like a lucha libre dope. Brilliant job poindexter. You and Joel Schmuckmacher enjoy that drink on your date.

  • Hiro the Eighth Samurai (and 14th Assassin)

    I like the haunting imagery of the broken mask. It’s rather chilling and ominous.

    • snapperhead

      I agree. The minimal light/heavy use of shadow, the rain…
      Everything about this image does a great job of conveying a very specific feeling.
      I am now worried for Batman.
      For me, the best characters in BB were the supporting cast. I loved Gordon, Alfred and Lucius. TDK was all about the Joker. In TDKR, I may actually care about Bruce.
      I am excited, to say the least.

    It is starting to make sense. From the first teaser poster when you see Gotham falling apart it was almost a type of foreshadowing to how Batman will break apart in this movie.

  • 198d

    WOW! Amazing poster indeed. Batsy is gonna get his ass handed to him. I feel bad, but I definitely want to see it happen!

    i just came :0

    I actually think Batman will have his back broken in the first part of the movie, then it will be 8 years later……..then, after Bane messes everything up in Gothom, Batman comes back, hence the “Rises” in the title. Then after Batman defeats Bane, he retires. I don’t see Christopher Nolan ending the whole Batman series with a bad taste in everyone’s mouth.

  • Strong Enough

    the real question is why would they put “The Legend ENDS”?

    that doesn’t quite spell out a happy ending. We know for one Batman isn’t going to die. That can’t happen. So what happens then? Bane breaks Batman’s back and 8 years he out of the job. it doesn’t make sense to put that line on the poster if the final shot is Batman over lookin gothem like ” I am Batman forever.” And he can’t quit batman becuz fanboys would just whine and crack jokes at a sub par reboot of batman with another director saying “he quit in the last film so this isn’t batman!” unless Nolan is playing with my head. DAMN YOU NOLAN! YOUR TOO GOOD!

  • terry

    I’ve goose bumps.!!!!!!!!

  • kenny

    This movie is getting way to much hype! Looks pretty average to me. Of course the dark knight is the most over rated movie in the last 10 years. The joker was the only great part about it.

    • Sccitylhh

      There’s always one.

  • Migz13

    STOKED!!! Nuff said!!
    July 2012…. Please come faster!!!

    I’m often amused at how there are so many people that love to trash Nolan’s Batman run. Sometimes its almost as if no one wants to acknowledlge that it is one of the most critically & financially relevant of the Batman films.

    Its almost hillarious…reminds me of one of my favorite comedy skits…

    Haters wanna hate…lovers wanna love…I don’t really want none of the above I want to piss on you…drip drip drip.

    (Dave Chappelle channeling Mr. R Kelley)

    Personally…I dig on the Bane costume & gas/meds delivery system he’s been equipped with. I actually LOVE the Selina Kyle suit…but don’t like the loss of her cowl/ears/headpiece. It’d be awesome if she had something similar to Batman’s graphite head plate/cowl.

    All that being said…I’m thrilled as a fresh cut shart!!!

  • Ringbearer1420

    The Spider-Man poster now looks like the imitation it is. This is a perfect poster.

  • sense 11

    Awesome, I’m watching the IMAX prologue on Saturday, this is going to be a loooong week waiting for that. Very excited.

  • GodsSoldier3

    HOLY $H!T..OMG, Is Batman gonna die in this one?? OMG!!! But to be honest it would only make sense. Either he’s going to die or bruce will decide that batman is no more? But I don’t think that bruce could make that decision to put batman to rest. I’m absolutely stoked. I saw that poster and immediately got chills down my spine. I’m pulling my hair out waiting for this movie. Chris has absolutely blown my mind to date. Can’t wait for what’s next.

  • tom

    i’m so jacked for this movie!!!! bane looks awesome, and from what i hear tom hardy is brilliant. i’m going to one of the early screenings of the prologue on tuesday, but i probably shouldn’t. cuz once it ends, i’ll just try to freeze myself until july like cartman
