‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ marketing mania continues with more posters of Christian Bale, Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway only a day after the latest underwhelming Batman poster hit. These look much better and more Christopher Nolanish.
I’m sure someone at Warner Bros got a little talking to after the negative response (ours included) at that fiery poster which just looked thrown together with a little color. Definitely not Christopher Nolan worthy. These new ones are sets of two for Batman, Bane and Catwoman first in the dark moodyness with some heavy looking rain and debris coming down around them. We know that would be the debris of Gotham falling after Bane’s destruction fest and then the other is very snowy with that ‘Prestige‘ hue of blue color. And of course, good posters aren’t even needed for this last of Nolan’s Batman trilogy, but they’re pretty to look at.
Naturally, after the response to the fiery Batman poster someone who had some time posted a gif showing the quick and easy process to take the original teaser poster and slap some color, move the bat and plunk Batman into the center of it all.
