After loads of behind the scenes and still images, we were all waiting for the poster.
With the tagline “The Legend Ends” the poster comes in hues of grey with Tom Hardy’s Bane walking away from the Dark Knight’s discarded mask.
This “The Legend Ends” can mean many things. It can mean what Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan have said that this will be their last Batman movie together ending their trilogy.
For those who know Batman’s back story know that the villain causes our hero devastating harm. Thinking about it, the marketing has focused much on Bane and Batman and very little on Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman. No character banner. No shot in the trailer. This may mean though, that the best is to come.
Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises will be in theaters on July 20, 2012.
