First Epic Teaser Poster for 'The Dark Knight Rises' Comes Crashing In

The Dark Knight Rises

Are you ready for the first official teaser poster for The Dark Knight Rises? Because it's time. This teaser poster was discovered hidden on the official website and can be seen below. I'm more inclined to call this The Dark Knight Crumbles, more than Rises, but it looks incredibly epic either way. The Dark Knight Rises is once again directed by Christopher Nolan and stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathway, Michael Caine and more. We've been waiting for this poster ever since The Dark Knight ended, and here it finally is, our very first introduction to the world we'll see in theaters next July.

The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Poster

The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled for release from Warner Bros starting July 20th, 2012 next summer. As always, you can find the latest updates by following our TDKR category. Stay tuned for the teaser trailer!

Did he just pull this from Inception?

Haha.  So true.  The firs thing I thought of when seeing this poster was "Inception"  Sadly I didn't even notice the bat symbol at first 'cause I was too caught up with thoughts of Inception.  Did they plant the idea of batman in my head?!!!!!!!  eep.

I just found this little image in the poster.  It obviously means nothing, but it is fun to pretend. http://imageshack.us/f/685/thedarkknightrisesfirst.jpg/

I saw it too.  Pretty sure it's just a fun little easter egg for the fans to find, or maybe something thrown in there by the artist.  Either way, it's perfectly subtle.  Maybe it's there...maybe it's not.

Outlaw on Jul 12, 2011

It took me a while! The Superman Logo! haha! great find! 

Bltzie on Jul 12, 2011

open to interpretation. Nolan doesn't do easter eggs.

Too bad this Batman's nothing more than a vigilante. What happened to the Batman that wasn't just at his physical peak? He's known as the Dark Knight, but he's also known as the world's greatest detective. I hope they have this movie explore that side of Batman and eventually end with him finally filling the role he was meant to have. If any series that almost ruined a superhero had a perfect ending, it was Smallville. Bringing Lex back and erasing his memory to make him the perfect enemy of Clark, bringing in the suit at the perfect time, everything was absolutely perfect. I hope the DKR movie makes up for this not-really-Batman series AND the retarded title through exploring the sides of Batman that made him great.

Dude, what the hell is wrong with you?

WTF????? on Jul 12, 2011

Yeah man. Are you like, a Burton fan or something too?

Buttass on Jul 12, 2011

Bro, he's also a detective in these movies. Remember when he took fingerprints off a chunk of concrete in the tdk? Or when he deduced that it was a gcpd officer with a relative in a hospital who would try to kill that tattle tale dude? Or even in the beginning when he and the police had some kind of sting operation going, feeding marked bills to the mob. All detective work, amigo.

Ludovico2012 on Jul 12, 2011

The detective work is shown in very few scenes, the focus is on the plot  .

I really like this, absolutely love the lack of title text.

Jertown on Jul 12, 2011

could somebody explain to me why the buildings are crumbling? i don't get it. did bane do that? is it symbolic? of what? an earthquake? i don't get the concept

tice on Jul 12, 2011

Don't you remember when Ra's al Ghul said to Bruce that the League of Shadows was a group that was set to bring balance to those who become too powerful.  He said they had destroyed cities like Rome and London and was close to destorying Gotham but with economics.  Of course Wayne's father (can't remember his name) stopped the league, and Bruce stopped the league again.  I guess this is the League getting back at the Wayne's.

Since the buildings symbolize Nolan's previous film, Inception, this poster represents how TDKR is going to destroy it!                                                               ...... Can't Wait!!!

when you zoom out far enough, it'll start to look like a splat of guano...

Besides the bat symbol, not sure what this is inferring, but I like it. Nolan's take on the Dark Knight reminds me so much of Frank Miller's "Year One" (I'm sure he drew from it). It's been enjoyable. I look forward to a solid end of the series.

Definitely one of the best posters I've seen. Very nice!

You know a movie series is epic if there's absolutely no need for a large visual title. That and, of course, the many many replies that appear for a poster and an announcement of a teaser trailer ^^

Neuromancer on Jul 12, 2011

55

why are people saying that it took them "awhile" to find the batman symbol among the buildings? REALLY? Is that not THAT OBVIOUS? It was the first damn thing I saw!

Unique Jenique on Jul 12, 2011

Amazing! Screams "Epic" and I hate the popular overuse of that word. Oh you better believe the Dark Knight will rise out of this rubble.

JJ KIng on Jul 12, 2011

The image looks kind of 'Inception-y' ... no?

Has anyone noticed that there are hidden images within the teaser poser. Bottom left of the poster you can clearly see the Joker holding up a card!!! Top Right corner you can see Catwoman. Center left you can see a plane of some sorts.
