New 'Dark Knight Rises' Character Posters Have Inclement Weather

The Dark Knight Rises

Yesterday, we got a new poster for The Dark Knight Rises, and while it's not terrible, many fans seemed to be disappointed in the poster, if only because it didn't seem all that inspiring or exciting (and it's apparently extremely easy to make in Photoshop). Well, perhaps in an effort to redeem themselves, Warner Bros. has unleashed six new character posters for Christopher Nolan's anticipated conclusion to the Dark Knight legend giving Batman, Bane and Catwoman two different posters, each with very bad weather. The batch with the rain instead of the snow seem to be the coolest, but they're not amazing. Look below!

Here's the posters for The Dark Knight Rises from Yahoo and Facebook (click for larger versions):

Dark Knight Rises - Batman RainDark Knight Rises - Batman Snow

Dark Knight Rises - Bane RainDark Knight Rises - Bane Snow

Dark Knight Rises - Catwoman RainDark Knight Rises - Catwoman Snow

Eight years after The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to the limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent.

The Dark Knight Rises is once again directed by Oscar nominated British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight and Inception previously. The script was co-written by Christopher & Jonathan Nolan (The Prestige, The Dark Knight), from a story by Chris Nolan & David S. Goyer (of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight). Warner Bros is bringing The Dark Knight Rises to regular and IMAX theaters everywhere July 20th, 2012 this summer. The Legend Ends…

    Not bad, nothing worth putting on the wall, though. The poster of Heath Ledger as the Joker in his classic purple suit is so iconic, it's a shame that they can't replicate the same sort of imagery with this one. I still think the movie's gonna be my favorite of the summer, though.
    • Xdeadontheinsidex
      Well, let's not forget, no one found it iconic until after the film was released. Most people were baffled by the choice of Ledger as the Joker, it wasn't until after that he became an icon. If this film tops it's predecessors, then Bane and his mask in the rain may be an icon. It's all about context. I didn't think much of Brad Pitt holding up that piece of soap, until I saw the film. Now it's iconic to me and most everyone that likes that movie.
      • Bats
        Right! I didn't even knew who was H.Ledger till I saw his joke act.  But the problem seems with Catwoman- can she be that menacing as the Joker. Women always mess it up.
  • son_et_lumiere
    'raincoats? where we're going we don't need... raincoats.' ok, these aren't *that* bad, and they far outdo The Avengers posters. but, like the whole marketing campaign for TDKR, it's not a patch on the lead-up to The Dark Knight. on the film itself, however, i have no concerns.
  • Phillip Gockel
    These are better than the earlier one for sure, though I mostly like the left column with all the rain/debris as I'm not big on the "thousand mile stare" look.
  • Solidexpectations
    Catwoman is supposed to be hot. In the comic she shows cleavage. Anne Hathaway is not exactly flat Michelle Pfeiffer. So, either Anne Hathaway is being a bratty diva in not pulling the zipper down for cleavage or Nolan is nothing but whipped.
    • Steven
      You don't need to be flashing the skin to be hot, less is more, and the film is not the comic.
      • Lightsaber
        Hey Steven, get in your wheel chair and stop putting your out of date opinions on us. lol  There is a problem when the chicks from the TV version of Batman from decades ago are in hotter outfits.  Showing cleavage would have been better.  The zipper is there for a reason.  It's quite apparent that the costume designer and Warner Brothers may have wanted cleavage when they approved the costume.  But, Nolan was to much of a sissy on set or Hathaway was to much of a brat. I'm thinking both!
        • bobby_drk
           I disagree.  Nolan's batman has been in a realistic world.  There is no reason for catwoman to to show cleavage.  It would be out of place. If you want to look at boobs, then welcome to the Internet.  If you want a realistic batman, you turn to Nolan. 
          • starbright
            Amen bro.
          • LosZombies
             Took the words right out of my mouth there bro. Why would a realistic catwoman, a professional burglar, rob a place, with her cleavage out? just doesnt make sense...
          • Blurb
             Why would a realistic burglar wear leather?
        • bat0u
           you're kidding... heh
        • SuicidalOptimist
          And here I figured the zipper's primary function was to help her get in and out of that skin tight outfit. How naive of me!
        • Bats
          The joker from TDK  is quite different as from the comics. Maybe they want Catwoman to be realitic than just a party boober.
    • Groov
      Anyone that thinks it's even remotely possible that Anne Hathaway was too much of a prude to show cleavage has never seen a movie with Anne Hathaway in it.
    • Fandrel
      I totally agree with you Solidexpectations.  Anyone who's not in agreement is gay and would rather look at men's packages. :)
      • Thisisstillmore
        Dang, I was going to disagree with Solidexpectations but I don't want to be gay OR look at men's packages. So I guess I am in agreement.
  • Tsidell
    I don't get it. Does the dark knight rise or does it end? Very contradicting statements
    • Andy
      The rise always comes before the fall. It's liken to a climax of a story. The story comes to an end, but usually the climax is the big event the story has led to, the high point if you will. They are contradictory, but by no means does that deflate the fact the film will involve Batmans rising from Gotham's damnation, and turn the tides in some respect, and Also bring the Nolan series to n end.
    • Steve
      You've not seen the previous films then?!?
      • Tsidell
        I've seen it.  Just a stupid contradiction
        • Chip_Tha_Ripper
          I agree. a terrible movie name too. soooooo different from the last one
          • Jericho
            i think the second movie was the only exception to Nolans choice of titles... Inception doesn't count because it wasn't his idea for the title, he wanted 'Dream Fights'
        • That's only because you'e too stupid to understand what it means
  • The look like action figures, but surprisingly I love catwoman in those, never thought I'd say that, but she looks great! I do mean it and I have to say it especially when those photos with those ridiculous goggles were released that looked silly. THIS is what they should have shown us all along. yep
  • Cjwarrior27
    He has to Rise, to bring an end to injustice by sacrificing the one thing he has left to give!! His life..
    • ASB
      I think everyone is going to die...even Batman
  • Moutchy
    I like the ones with the rain! Seriously, you guys are really hard to satisfy when it comes to movie posters!
  • shad
    Better than the Avengers trashy posters. These are awesome.
  • Dylan McNutt
    This looks awesome! I don't know what any of  you guys are talking about!
  • Ryderup
    I dig the left ones!
  • Xerxexx
    The Bane one is awesome.
  • Razor
    Much better than yesterday's poster. WB fell and has risen!
  • DaveLister_JMC
    The Bane in rain is mainly... something, something... any help?
  • moo
    With Bane's left column stance, am I the only one who thought of the shopping scene from "Crazy Stupid Love"?
    • Adam
      Yes moo. Yes you are.
  • Don't kid yourself, these posters are horrible. But they are probably horrible on purpose. This movie has HUGE expectations to meet. The Dark Knight was near perfect. They have to keep it real
  • Nielsen700
    Rain wins.

    Bain is cool, dont have doubt but I hate when villain has close mouse. I think Nolan must use Joseph Gordon levit as Beloved Joker. Absence of Joker is very intoraleble, yeah this film is for Bain not joker, but I think two villain in same time in this "legend's End" nesecity. One villain not enough , because previous one had two villain and give us further expects. But Bain is ultimate,ok, I really love Tom hardy,very precisely choise from genius Nolan. In other hand I'm very agree with presence of catwoman. Lover of batman dead with joker conspiracy but my problem with this catwoman hidden in roots matterial. Catwoman is sex symbol. Not compeletly but very much. Nolan not in sex mood material, he show it in his movies, non of his work had sex scenes. I think I dont have connect with this character. Yes, if she had tragic past and good character developing I'm in also, but I prefer original bob Kane catwoman character. I would want another legendary Michel pfifer with Nolan style not Ann hataway in this suit I think this another batman from Nolan , this is another good dc comics that live on screen , this is another memorable dark tragic movie in my bluray collection but NOT ANOTHER DARK KNIGHT I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo interested in batman reboot

       Batman is too dark and grim.
    • ASB
      First of all, Mr. Nolan prefers brain over brawn. Batman also uses his instincts! He was inspired with the comics but never copied from the novels/comics. The Knight will always "rise" after the sun sets. All of us has seen Mr. Chris Nolan's grey cells. He is capable of showing skills no director has shown.
  • The GBC weatherman has a lot of explaining to do!!
  • Egomaniaxtheoriginal
    yeeyy, batman's wearing his yellow belt! Did anyone notice that?
    • yeah, he's been wearing it since batman begins...
      • Egomaniaxtheoriginal
        wow, I cannot believe I never noticed the belt was yellow, somehow it is caught to my eye in this poster for the first time
  • posters look great.

    I know I remember seeing Batman have a gold/yellow belt in both Begins and TDK but for some reason it seems to stand out in several of the pitctures that we've seen from Rises.
