The Dark Knight Rises Characters

Rise! Ohh you've gotta love the fan-art community, they'll take anything, make it better, and spread it like wildfire. Here we have one of my favorite sets, a series of character posters for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises to compliment the original three dark, raining-rubble characters posters for Batman, Catwoman and Bane. They've made a full set of individual "Rise" character posters for: Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Marion Cotillard, Matthew Modine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, plus one for Chris Nolan himself (yea) and [spoiler!]. Finally, there's one for the Joker, strangely enough.

Thanks to Collider for rounding up most of these, original artwork credit goes to The final two banners come from Matt's site, also on Facebook. And the Joker was originally found here.

I couldn't help but round-up a full gallery of all these awesome fan-made character posters, they look great and I'm so damn excited for The Dark Knight Rises, with a few months left! Which are your favorites?

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…

These are brilliant! Get rid of the one with Nolan though, Its a little too Lars Von Trier-y IMO

 There is one that is hats will rise that is hilarious. Also have a feeling we will be seeing Two-Face

Steven Morgan on Jun 5, 2012


Not even sure why, but for a second there I thought it was Udo Kier in the fourth poster..!

Davide Coppola on Jun 5, 2012


You forgot the one with the cop whose hat gets blown off. hats will RISE.

Morgan Freemans is AKWARD as hell lol

Just makin sure...not all of these characters in the posters are going to be viewed in the actual movie? Obviously not Nolan....but even a glimpse of a captured Joker? Or another cameo of Scarecrow? 

Brotsis on Jun 5, 2012


Except for Nolan and, The Joker, everyone will make an appearance. Yes, even the cop that loses his hat. Nolan has sworn that The Joker is not going to be in this movie at all. Heath did his thing and he will leave it at that. Scarecrow does make an appearance. I won't say anymore, but if you dig around you will see that some sites have reported his involvement.

Nice to see Matt's work getting bigger exposure like this.  I've been following his stuff for awhile, he's awesome.

I'm tellin' ya, the fan made posters are (to me) BETTER than what the company is rolling out.

Brian on Jun 5, 2012


This guy should Rise to the top ranks of actual poster making, his stuff is awesome, awesome!

Fidel Reyes on Jun 5, 2012


JGL is very pale. Put a smile on that face and he becomes The Joker.  I like them, appreciate the effort.
