'The Dark Knight Rises' Standee Art Leaks Online

Posted by No_Name_ (17403 posts) - - Show Bio

Things have been rather quiet on the 'Dark Knight Rises' front as of late, but that doesn't mean that production on the film isn't well underway. Though we haven't seen new footage in quite a while, we did catch a peek at the life-sized Batman promotional art that we'll be seeing pop up in theaters throughout the country. Superherohype got a peek at the official 'Dark Knight Rises' theater standee art featuring both Batman and Bane. A smaller image was also released featuring Catwoman as well as Bane striking a slightly different pose.

If you work at a movie theater and have the chance to snag one of these for yourselves, we totally wouldn't blame you. Who wouldn't want a life sized Batman in their bedroom? I certainly wouldn't complain.

'The Dark Knight Rises' is directed by Christopher Nolan and is scheduled to hit theaters across the U.S. on July 20th. The film stars Christian Bale as Batman, Michael Cain as Alfred, Tom Hardy as Bane and Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.

i still dont like Bane's design, although Catwoman's looks better.

Is it just me or does Batman look way better then in the other movies? But Catwoman still looks awefull

Is it just me, or does Batman look bulkier here than he did in the second movie? Could that be he actually beefed up or just photoshop?

Daaamn Bane looks insane

I hate Catwoman's outfit (specifically the ears). She looks like a fifteen year old trying to look sexy on Halloween. Bane looks surprisingly badass without his big dumb coat. Batman's head looks big.

These aren't photos of the actors just standee's, they put these up at movie theaters for advertisement. Some pretty bad ass advertisement if you ask me lol.

Batman looks bigger, which is awesome. And I love the cape over his shoulder and being grabbed in his other hand. It looks like something out of a Jim Lee Batman poses book.

CANNOT WAIT.

cant understand the hate Catwoman gets in this lol. Did ppl expect her to actually have the huge pointy ears. She looks real good as a cat burglar which she is. They all look great. Nolan is great at making these batman characters seem more real.

Yeah I agree, Bat-Bulb-Head looks terrible. The rest of the armor look awesome.

Christian Bale dropped a LOT of weight for the Fighter. He would have had to put it all back on, and then some.

Bane's vest is different,the original is green this one matches the color of his pants(blue).He's also more ripped.

Catwoman, Black Widow called - she wants her guns and suit back.

I used to have the official one for Batman Returns (a collage of the various characters) in my room. It was from a friend who worked at a theater, not I. They just threw them in a basement to rot after use then though, I'm not sure what happens with promotional display items now (I assume the same difference depending on). The quality has increased these over the years. The depth didn't stand out as well on the Returns one like these do.

Well, I'm sort of okay with the way Bats and Catwoman look. I mean I prefer the actual movies than the character designs in those actually....

But I still can't get my hand around the wa y Bane looks! It's so silly, idiotic... I mean even a luchadore going after Bats (in the comics) makes more sense than this guy with those "panties" over his face!....

@CitizenBane: Nice choice of avatar there haha

@entropy_aegis:

Well look at Batman he looks twice the size of Bale in the suit his upper body is huge compared to Bale.

Batman looks awesome as always but I really hate how Bane looks. It just look stupid. I hate the mouth piece. Is it supposed to look like teeth?

#40 Posted by Doctor!!!!! (2055 posts) - - Show Bio
