'Dark Knight Rises' teaser poster hits Web

We've got a year to go before "The Dark Knight Rises" swoops into theaters on July 20, 2012, but there's already a teaser poster available to whet your appetites (as if you'd need that).

The poster bears nothing more than the Batman symbol outlined by buildings presumably in Gotham City plus when the film is slated to arrive, but that's likely because we already know the cast by heart.

Directed by Christopher Nolan, "The Dark Knight Rises" will star Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and "Inception's" Tom Hardy as Bane.

Back in April, studio Warner Bros. revealed that Hardy's "Inception" co-stars Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are also part of the cast, with Cotillard playing an employee at Bruce Wayne's company, and Gordon-Levitt playing a Gotham City cop.

    While it was exciting enough in the cinema, it takes a crazy person to say The Dark Knight flows well. Much like Inception, the film aspires to a high level of tension throughout, signalled primarily by way too much music banging away in the background. And yes, Paul is right. http://bit.ly/p17sCk

    but...but....but Christian Bale is a terrible Batman. That voice alone puts him "even" with Clooney for Worst Batman Ever!

    • dued, really?

      it used to make me laugh, the way he would behave; always raising up his head to try and watch me shave; now all i can do is sing the blues; cause all he does is hang his head and watch me tie my shoes.

    Apparently this website doesn't like the word $ e x since it's censored everytime I used it. Heaven forbid I call an actor $ e x y. Any how. I said I was disappointed in the choice of Anne Hathaway for Catwoman, even though I like her. I don't think she's strong and $ e x y enough for the character, especially when you compare her to earlier actresses who played the character on TV and in the movies. But people were wrong about Heath Ledger as joker so maybe I'm wrong about her as catwoman.

  16. Gordon-Levitt should've been the next joker
