A Bane-focused prologue for The Dark Knight Rises is currently playing before Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol in IMAX and a new trailer is expected to be released soon, but in the meantime Warner Bros. has released a new teaser poster.
The poster, which could foreshadow some unpleasant events in the film, features Batman’s broken mask on the ground, with Bane (Tom Hardy) stood menacingly in the background.
Check out the full poster below, and click to enlarge.
The Dark Knight Rises is set for release on July 20th, 2012. Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman will reprise their roles alongside Anne Hathaway (Catwoman), Tom Hardy (Bane), Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
