After yesterday’s Ron poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, I wagered that the next poster in the series (which previously included Harry and Hermoine) would feature Voldemort. I lost my bet! The new poster features unlikely hero Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis). Neville is one of my favorite characters in the series because he’s the Harry Potter of the background. Harry was heroic from day one, but Neville slowly grew into a hero and eventually became the leader of Dumbledore’s Army. He has an absolutely badass moment in the final book and I’d be shocked if they didn’t include it in the film.
Hit the jump to check out the poster. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 opens in 3D on July 15th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2:
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2,” is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. The much-anticipated motion picture event is the second of two full-length parts.
In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort.
It all ends here.
