The Dark Knight Rises

After those two international banners showed up this morning, we thought the marketing onslaught for The Dark Knight Rises that went into full swing this week was taking a break, at least for the long weekend. Well, someone went and discovered a QR code at the bottom of the final theatrical poster release earlier this week (the fiery orange one), and then let Batman-News in on the secret link: a kick-ass poster that's basically the Catwoman companion to the Bane poster with the broken Batman mask that was revealed back in December. This is easily the best of the new posters to hit this week, and you can see it in full below!

Here's the secret Catwoman poster for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises from Batman-News:

The Dark Knight Rises - Catwoman Poster

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…

Big Boss on May 25, 2012


Ahh, I see lips outside the bat-logo! Nice. Would've missed it if I hadn't read the comments.

Doesn't seem like it's that big of a secret if it's all over the internet...

axalon on May 25, 2012


Well, it's like a secret level in a video game...

Thanks for the shoutout guys! This past week has been INSANE for The Dark Knight Rises news! It's almost too much! on May 25, 2012


off topic - the one thing nolan can't do well is explosions. if u look at the trailer both the nfl field and the bridge just seems to just turn into dust without any real explosions or fire. poorly done imo. good poster though

Not all destructions has to come in the form of giant fireballs.

John on May 25, 2012


 Well they can't all be pros with explosions like Michael Bay. *rolls eyes*

sarcasm on May 25, 2012


Not that Michael Bay is a pro anyway

Woody on May 26, 2012


 Say what you will about Michael Bay's movies, but he is a pro, and his actions sequences are executed with great talent from a technical standpoint.

Hitmarkv on May 26, 2012


Your insane

Crapola on May 29, 2012


The reason that there arent flames is because they're not explosions. They're implosions...

Elyk1887 on May 26, 2012


More realistic you'll find.

The Dark Knight: Sin City Tales.

Omen Tragedy between BAT & CAT will gona be happened Heart Breaking Poster Bring The Next On

Ehsan Davodi on May 25, 2012


I have to say that's the best batman poster done for the dark knight rises

BinaryChaos on May 25, 2012


Daaaamn! Awesome poster! Total feminine feel to it with that kiss/batman logo. I actuall wouldnt mind framing this lol

LosZombies on May 25, 2012


Those shoes are NOT practical.

Thisisstillmore on May 25, 2012


Practical, no. But an improvised weapon, maybe. I s it just me or is this Chris Nolan's idea of a shoe knife? KGB used to use something simmilar all the time.

Woody on May 26, 2012


Cool Poster, very creative Glad to see the film is starting to get promoted rightfully

Fidel Reyes on May 25, 2012


WB was more or less waiting for The Avengers to arrive. There was no sense in putting out posters and promotional material to try and 'compete' with the constant ads, reviews, and eventual opening and record smashing of that film when THIS one doesn't even come out until late July.

Chris_G on May 26, 2012


Yes i get that, and it was a smart move on the part of WB, but even so, there isn't much hype in the outside world, if you have noticed most of it is online, which is great because ost people are on the web alot, but it would still be good to see some more marketing on the outside, not that it matters though the film itself looks very promising and it is a very anticipated movie by fans and non fans of the franchise.

Fidel Reyes on Jun 1, 2012


I commented when the other posters broke saying that it's a shame that none of the posters for the Dark Knight Rises could match the iconic yet simplistic imagery of the Joker from Dark Knight. I stand corrected.

Buttass on May 25, 2012


Cool poster for a really stupid character that somehow made it into the film.

Batblows on May 25, 2012


Because your name doesn't sound biased at all...

Chris_G on May 26, 2012


The heel is a crazy serrated knife, great touch. Practical? probably not...but its also not practical for someone to glide out of a plane and through a hong kong skyscraper. 

JD on May 25, 2012


honestly...this is probably my favorite poster yet for this

Danimal on May 25, 2012


This will be a kick ass picture if they to put it on for the cover of the TDKR blue ray and dvd once its released into the market

Stevenfreestyler on May 25, 2012


The Nolan Batman films have always lacked a strong female aspect. Rachel Dawes, played by Holmes or Gyllenhaal, is just not a very interesting or compelling female lead. Neither of them are all THAT attractive either. The character is essentially a damsel in distress that functions as a love interest/plot device. But Anne Hathaway is gorgeous, and Catwoman as a character looks good and kicks ass....that'll do a lot of work towards sort of expanding the audience for this film.

Chris_G on May 26, 2012


Best TDKR poster until now.

Manuel on May 26, 2012


I love it. TDKR is coming, and I ain't prepared for it.

Isildur_of_Numenor on May 26, 2012


she forgot to add another X

dim2thesum on May 26, 2012


Bane wearing stillettos is just stupid. 🙂
