New Banner Posters for The Dark Knight Rises Depict All-Out War in Gotham City
05.25.12 by BJSprecher
Talk about upping the ante! We couldn't have been any less impressed with the new poster for The Dark Knight Rises that was released earlier this week, but it appears it was only a forerunner of the good things to come. Almost immediately after the "fiery redux" poster hit the 'net, three visually striking (and wet) new character posters popped up online. Now, four epic banner posters/billboards have also been released and they depict no less than all-out war between Batman (Christian Bale), the Gotham City Police Department, and Bane's (Tom Hardy) army, with Catwoman's (Anne Hathaway) allegiance — She's riding Batman's Bat-pod, but is it a loner or did the infamous cat burglar swipe it? — still in question.
Here's the synopsis of The Dark Knight Rises:
When Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) stumbles upon a plot to destroy the city from within, Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) gets back into action as the Batman. Waiting for him is the mysterious Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) and Bane (Tom Hardy), a lethal adversary on a crusade to tear apart Batman’s legacy piece by piece.
