‘The Dark Knight Rises’ With Six New Character Posters

The Dark Knight Rises
Warner Bros.

Well, this should more than make up for that lame ‘Dark Knight Rises‘ poster that was released yesterday and appeared to have been made by a college student taking an introductory Photoshop course.

Yahoo! Movies has three new character banners for Chris Nolan‘s ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ the third film in his Batman trilogy that pits the caped crusader against Catwoman and Bane in a film featuring some timely economic social commentary. Oh, and ass-kicking. There will be plenty of that.

[UPDATE: We have now added three additional UK banners featuring the same characters for a total of six new posters!]

The posters feature a slightly de-saturated Batman, Bane, and Catwoman standing in the rain in the dark (put on your coats! You’ll catch a cold!) with the word “Rise” behind them.

As we’ve gleaned from the trailer and teaser, “rise” is what the prison inmates are chanting, and with a Batman who’s taken a step down from vigilantism due to an angry Gotham, “rise” is just what he’ll need to do. You know, like rise to the occasion or rise from his bed and eat a well-rounded breakfast so he can fight all that crime.

The posters are much more striking than the sloppy, fire-laden poster that hit the web yesterday, but the font leaves a bit to be desired. Then again, we’re not exactly excited about a new Batman movie for the font, are we?
