Now that the summer’s first giant superhero movie has burst into theaters, it’s time to take our short attention spans and turn them over to the remaining two superhero flicks: The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises. Audiences aren’t sure what to expect from The Amazing Spider-Man, but fans are excited out of their minds to see Christopher Nolan‘s final Batman movie. Although the movie is over two months away, Warner Bros. has already started rolling out merchandise. In December, we showed you a Bane shirt Warner Bros. had sent out as part of the film’s viral campaign. Now you can buy that shirt for the ridiculous price of $48 along with other overpriced geek couture. If you’re considering buying the wife-beater featuring Bane and pink lightning bolts, may I suggest burning your money instead? You won’t look as stupid, and you’ll be warmer.
Hit the jump to see some of the first merchandise for The Dark Knight Rises. The movie opens on July 20th.
Steve took photos of these fabulous items at Kitson on the 3rd Street promenade in Santa Monica. You can buy a lot of it online here.
