Six New Character Posters for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

     May 22, 2012


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.
