Warner Bros. has released a new teaser poster for director Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, as anticipation is rising (ahem) over the extended prologue to the movie that will accompany the release of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol on Dec. 16th in select 70mm IMAX prints.
Earlier this week, several outlets were shown the seven-minute prologue, which centers on villain Bane (Tom Hardy, just like the poster, which claims "the Legend Ends" and depicts Bane walking away from Batman's cowl. Reportedly, the prologue takes place mostly in an airplane, and features Aidan Gillen (The Wire, Game of Thrones) in an unspecified role. After the screening of the prologue, Nolan told EW that he was excited for the public to see the footage.

I am excited about it. I’m only nervous about it in that the rest of the film isn’t finished yet, so we’re still in the evolving creative process. I wouldn’t want the reactions to skew that. We try to work in a vacuum a little bit. It’s always different in the editing room. There’s a lot of discovery and a long process of rediscovery.
