Six New Character Posters for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

by     Posted 2 years, 91 days ago


Yesterday, Warner Bros. released a very fire-y poster for The Dark Knight Rises.  I speculated at the time that it might be the final poster for Christopher Nolan’s third and last Batpic, but I am now prepared to eat my hat as six new character posters for the film have gone online.  Three of the posters ditch the oh-so-colorfulness of yesterday’s one-sheet in favor of rain and gloom; ah, there’s the Christopher Nolan we know and love.  The other three posters involve snow, so hopefully three posters with a beach theme are on the way soon (I can only imagine Bane will be sporting a speedo).  The posters are actually pretty cool, and they give us a nice look at Christian Bale’s Batman, Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman, and Tom Hardy’s Bane.  For some reason there appears to be a good amount of rocks/debris coming down with the rain, and no one remembered to bring an extra-strength umbrella.  Classic Batman.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  The film also stars Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Marion Cotillard, and Joseph Gordon-LevittThe Dark Knight Rises opens on July 20th.

    Super intense.

    Kind of has a Lee Bermejo quality.

  • AlbertRuncorn

    I see only three…

  • Griz

    If somebody knows where i can buy the very top one as a poster, i’d be eternally grateful.

    What’s this about a guy who – what? Dresses as a … bat?

    Can he destroy flying alien sea-creatures with a single, mutating green fisted punch?

    Well. He SEEMS interesting. God help me if I’ve ever heard of him…

      Wow, look at how EXTREME this troll is

      • Griz

        Pretty sure that’s sarcasm, buddy.

    My only nit-picking issue is The Rain and gloom Catwoman picture appears to have her portrayed with her visor up to give her the cat-like appearance, but then the eye area is blacked-out.Looks odd considering the black is darker than the rest of the black in the poster. Still great images though.

  • solid expectations

    Catwoman is supposed to be hot. In the comic she shows cleavage. Anne Hathaway is not exactly flat Michelle Pfeiffer. So, either Anne Hathaway is being a bratty diva in not pulling the zipper down for cleavage or Nolan is nothing but whipped.

      ..And Bane is supposed to be a stupid wrestler/Gimp mask with rediculous tights and have venom pump through him that makes him absurdly strong…. Not many people are complaining about that now are they? Having her boobs out, I imagine, wouldn’t be terribly helpful when fighting. It’s different if it’s in comics or video games as there isn’t that problem.

      Just get over yourself and go take your horny self to some decrepit corner of the internet if you want some clevage. Nolan is putting somewhat of a reality spin on his Batman series, if you haven’t caught on to that from the last two movies than a big facepalm to you sir.

    These posters make the one appearing earlier on the site look like a 3 year old’s finger painting.

    If Goldberg had made that Bane in a Speedo joke this board would be full of comments about how he is a terrible writer and how no one cares about his sophomoric sense of humor. Guess you are much wittier than poor old Goldy.

    I don’t think that’s snow, I think it’s ASH!!!

    Really digging Catwoman’s design (and appearance) from the images from the trailer and now this.
    There’s a reason the production team says, “she [Catwoman] looks fantastic in the screen tests” – versus the initial leaked set photos.

  • Vagittarius

    First 3 look like that BATMAN-DEAD END fan film, which is a compliment. Also reminds me of Sin City too.

  • Aaronsullivan

    I’m pretty sure I’m going to love the movie based on my 6-0 record with Christopher Nolan films. That said, these posters aren’t doing much for me. The last three are far better than the first three, but the font is just completely misused. Reminds me of the John Carter font and how misplaced that was. The Catwoman on bike is the first image I’ve seen from this movie that makes her look at all cool, and I like Anne Hathaway generally.

    Ad campaign has been pretty bad in my opinion. It’s actually starting to make me question how good this one is going to turn out, where I had no doubts about it being a sure fire hit before the ad campaign started.

    • Henry Pym

      …or your just a Christopher Nolan fanboy. Nothing wrong with that, but a little flick called The Prestige was not that great compare to Nolan’s standard of movies.

      • Aaronsullivan

        I actually look forward to his non-batman films more. Honestly, most of his movies are a great trip but I don’t enjoy watching them more than once or twice. Usually the ultimate themes offer a pretty sad view of humanity. For me they tend to get darker when the novelties wear off.

        So I love that first experience of each of his films because he tends to expect more from his audience than most filmmakers. But, the simple escapist pleasures of films and inclusion of endearing characters an audience may want to revisit seem almost completely lost on Christopher Nolan. That’s okay though, there are others that do that.

      right there with you. a sound film, indeed. but marketing a bust. you’re a brave man.

    I cant buy into catwomen. I’m sorry guys but she suck a fat one.

  • kj

    Can someone please offer a non- sarcastic, non-hate filled response to a simply question.
    Given Nolan’s “gritty, reality based take” on Batman how does putting on a large pair of dark pointy sunglasses ala this take on Catwoman, pass for anything that could remotely be considered a disguise?

    Does anyone suddenly not recognize an acquaintance’s face let alone body type, hair etc., the moment they put on a large pair of sunglasses?

    Sorry, just like the dopey Clark Kent’s glasses disguise, this sort of suspension of believably makes all the characters supposedly taken in by such a ruse appear to be anything but gritty or real.

    • Singularity

      I don’t get the sense Catwoman’s “mask” is for disguise… It’s obviously part of the vision-enhancement apparatus, and a nod to the classic appearance of the character.

    no date on them?

    Better than the poster for Batman Begins but not near as interesting as TDK poster with its flaming bat symbol on the building. It’s all kind of ”eh.”
