Warner Bros. Reveal Latest Entries In THE DARK KNIGHT RISES T-Shirt Contest

The second round of entries in The Dark Knight Rises t-shirt contest have been revealed and you can check out a selection of the best here.

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ "The Dark Knight Rises" is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster "The Dark Knight." The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.

Warner Bros. and Design By Humans have teamed up offer fans the chance to win cash prizes in return for designing a t-shirt for The Dark Knight Rises. However, despite the fact that there is a total of $13,000 up for grabs, the best part for many will be the fact that Christopher Nolan himself will choose three of the winners.

i would hate to judge these cobined with the first set of tees... some really good ideas
NeoBaggins - 4/3/2012, 6:44 AM
@grif The closest you'll get to that art in a Batman comic is the Arkham Asylum graphic novel. Not to be confused with the video game.
Wildaniel - 4/3/2012, 6:46 AM
Those are really good, I like the one with Bane's mask saying Rises on the pipes, lol.
Amazo - 4/3/2012, 6:59 AM
Marvel is overkilling their marketing.It's too much.Lot's of people on Facebook were saying the other day that they're getting sick of the sight of The Avengers and they feel like they've seen the movie already.
TDKR doesn't need to saturate the market in that way.It already has it's audience.All they need to do is release a trailer near the release date and job done.
SuperFrost - 4/3/2012, 7:13 AM
I need to get in on this...
ClarkFarley2012 - 4/3/2012, 7:22 AM
@ Amazo...yea they're going overkill right lol. I don't mind though. It's just like I'm really not excited about TDKR cuz I haven't seen enough. Like you said its time to drop another trailer..June is around the corner.
Ha1frican - 4/3/2012, 7:30 AM
The 3rd and final ones looks the best imo
KNIGHT3000 - 4/3/2012, 7:33 AM
