So yesterday there was a new poster for “The Amazing Spider-Man”. Not to be outdone, Warner Bros. now presents a new teaser poster for their entry into the summer 2012 superhero sweepstakes, Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises”.
The poster is dark and gritty, and features a thugged out Bane (Tom Hardy), who, by all appearances, has just stomped the living crap out of Batman (Christian Bale). Combine that with the tagline, “The Legend Ends”, and you’ve got the makings of a grim, bleak chapter in the life of a certain Caped Crusader. I’ll stop talking about it now and let you check it out for yourself down below.
Even with the oversaturation of casting gossip, plot rumors, set photos, and more, I’m still as excited for “The Dark Knight Rises” as I am for any movie of 2012. Then again, isn’t everyone? I’m curious what you all think of this poster.
In addition to Bale and Hardy, “Rises” stars Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Morgan Freeman, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. “The Dark Knight Rises”, along with Bale’s ultra man-voice, hits theaters July 20, 2012.
