New High Quality Promo Images for 'The Dark Knight Rises' Surface

Posted by G-Man (39569 posts) - - Show Bio

It's been relatively quiet on the Batman/Dark Knight Rises front lately. All we've been hearing about is The Avengers. Although the latest word is that a new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man may be appearing before The Avengers. That would be quite a treat.

As for The Dark Knight Rises, some high quality promo images have popped up online over at It was mentioned that these might not be new but I can't say I recall seeing them. Regardless, they look pretty sweet so let's take a moment to look and enjoy them.

The first is your typical Christian Bale/Batman/I'm-a-big-badass pose.

As cool as this image looks, him holding his cape like that sort of reminds me of a woman holding up her skirt walking over a puddle. Sorry Batman.

== TEASER ==

The next one is kind of weird but interesting at the same time.

The last one, while very posed and promo-y, is my favorite.

I am so ready to see this movie.

I am sure this thought has occurred to others, but maybe his Bane mask allows him to inhale the steroids.

Do they make a Batman suit in double XL?

Just kidding. Its the internet, don't get mad.

This is the IT movie for me hands down. Batman Begins and Dark Knight were so good, to me at least, that I have 100% faith in Dark Knight Rises, regardless of all the nitpicks people have had in the past year. If I end up being wrong, so be it, but only one way to find out. I want to see this so bad, I'm going to take half a day off from work the day its out and just go see it by myself at the earliest showing. I'm that serious about it.

To be honest. I think the first picture really sux. Instead of just showing some kind of silhouette to bring out the dark morbid character they just throw him in your face with lots of colors. It doesnt look mysterious anymore. Despite that, the movie will be awesome!

The film will be awful. I demand shark repellent and disco.

#29 Posted by Sky_Jokiel (328 posts) - - Show Bio

They need to stop with these "I'm batman and look how cheesy my pose is and look how cool my suit is" what happened to the dark shadow ninja we all loved from batman begins

These pictures are way to bright for me

Bats vs. Bane... IT'S ON!

#31 Posted by Ganthetsward20 (724 posts) - - Show Bio

When I first saw theese I was all " Why is batman fighting Mr. Freeze? Oh wait its Bane!" I was really confused the pose and the way it looks and how bright it is and that last pic looks like its snowing. I was confused and felt like a dork.

#33 Posted by yo_yo_fun (654 posts) - - Show Bio


Especially the 3rd one!

I can't wait for this movie!

#35 Posted by Zeeguy91 (1357 posts) - - Show Bio

@RedheadedAtrocitus: So agreed!

Looks like a bunch of action figures to me lol

#37 Posted by gutoleh (1 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman against Bane is always epic.

just waiting.

#38 Posted by RigorMortis (89 posts) - - Show Bio

To those complaining these are too bright, I'm pretty sure Bane drawing Batman out during the day is going to be a big part of the movie, to remove his advantage, so these make sense, thematically. Think about it, almost all the photos and videos of action sequences have been in bright daylight, sometime even with bright white snow falling down. The whole point is Batman being out of his element.

No more excited than I was previously. Nice to see some new stuff though. Seems as if all the promo stills and pics have a much brighter tone to them than Batman Begins or even Dark Knight did. Brown, to blue, to white?

#40 Posted by Crash_Recovery (855 posts) - - Show Bio

Odd photos. They look like stills from an overly polished game.

I don't think these are promos for the film as much as art for lunchboxes and notebooks.

The Bats and Bane one is AWESOME. I was very surprised to learn that it took 8 years after the Dark Knight...

I liked the third picture better (Batman vs Bane). I cannot wait to see the battle between them in the movie. Should be interesting to watch!

#45 Posted by RoninLoganX (40 posts) - - Show Bio

Awesome pics. But, honestly, I hate the look they've given Bane. And, from the trailers I'm getting the sense that they've changed a lot about the character, maybe too much.

#46 Posted by SnakeEyes327 (58 posts) - - Show Bio

It's pretty obvious the stills are shot to show off the modified armor he's wearing.

#47 Posted by sinestro_GL (3566 posts) - - Show Bio

You know what's really annoying? When I talk to my non-comic book reader (or non-DC) friends about Bane - they all think that he's some dumbass thug because of Schumacher's p.o.s. film. Even though I HATE IT when people who don't read comics think they know everything about a character because of watching films and reading Wikipedia, I hope Nolan does justice to Bane so I never have to hear about how stupid or retarded Bane is.

#48 Posted by FadeToBlackBolt (23390 posts) - - Show Bio

Those are some truly beautiful images.

Nolan, you are so unoriginal. I thought your Bane looked familiar...can you say Croc Master from G.I. Joe?
