Every hero has a journey. Every journey has an end. Christopher Nolan returns to complete the epic Gotham trilogy that launched with Batman Begins and reached the stratosphere with the billion-dollar blockbuster The Dark Knight. Inception's Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levett join the cast regulars along with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle and Tom Hardy as the powerful villain Bane, while Oscar winner Christian Bale prowls the night as the Caped Crusader, fighting crime and corruption with the help of Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman.
















Click the link below to check out a couple more photos of Bane's bobble head. Both bobble heads will be shipped in May.

The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit theaters July 20th, later this year.

I don't know, I kinda like them. I want the Bane one.
PaulRom - 3/26/2012, 12:17 PM
Yeah they are kinda cool. Wouldn't mind having either of them.
StrangerX - 3/26/2012, 12:17 PM
I think they look cool.

The Bane bobble head looks just as pock-marked as Tom Hardy's zit-covered back.

They look pretty decent. By the way word around the Internet is WB execs were extremely pleased with TDKR screening. At one screening it received standing ovation. I hope that's true!

I'm actually impressed on how detailed they are!
ralfinader - 3/26/2012, 1:09 PM
The Bane one is impressive. They captured Tom Hardy's costume, musculature, and height to a tee. Frickin midget Bane...

I WANT A MARTY MCFLY ONE. ;)

Yeah, they sure are merchandising this thing like crazy, but when is Warner Bros. going to actually start getting the marketing for this thing? Remember the HUGE viral for TDK? The unbelievable hype? We could use a new trailer or something right about now.
TonyChu - 3/26/2012, 1:31 PM
@ Moriarty117 The film is still four months away. I can honestly see them doing some stuff next month and especially since they have to compete with The Avengers and TASM, trust me there will be major marketing for this film. TDKR is the last installment of the franchise don't think that for one minute that WB are not going to promote this film properly. Plus Wrath of the Titans comes out next week so we may get something from that movie, who knows.
Moriarty117 - 3/26/2012, 1:39 PM
I heard the rumor of mid-April for the new trailer also, ironman53. I kinda wish they would throw out the trailer this weekend with Wrath of the Titans like TonyChu suggested. And they are definitely going to try to get people to forget about Avengers and TASM. I'm not worried that they won't market it, my fanboy patience just demands they start sooner.

Even a teesny viral blip would be awesome. Here's to counting down the days!

@Moriarty

Mid April (the 13th more than likely) is indeed correct. And why Yes Im a Nolan and TDKR diehard...thank you very much IronMan53.
The trailer will probably get a Internet release first like the last one. Ill know more details in the next week or so. And like others have stated, WB is probably waiting for the Dust to settle with Most Blockbusters due out shortly and then theyll have the worlds attention. Why spend millions and millions while the world is too busy being awed by boring favorites like The Avengers, MIB3, or even Dark Shadows (a little bit).

However, i cannot wait to see the competitiveness between TASM and TDKR.

THE HUNGER GAMES FTW!!!!!
NOLANITE out.
AsianVersionOfET - 3/26/2012, 2:26 PM
I want Bane! Oh my eff! That would look great in my room!

@nomis

EXACTLY


batmans head size , banes size

al accurate in those pics :p
Moriarty117 - 3/26/2012, 3:44 PM
Thanks for the info, Nolanite. Dodging the Avengers madness is probably a smart move for Warner. But we all know who will be the Box Office King of Summer, right?

And I imagine there will be some viral lead-up to the release of the second trailer, so here's hoping.

Hunger Games was pretty fun, huh Nolanite? Cheers!

@Tea -

That's just.......wrong. :P




Stay EPIC, my friends!
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 3/26/2012, 4:11 PM
Maybe that's why Bane wears a mask. :P
AverageJoe - 3/26/2012, 4:24 PM
They turned out pretty good. Marketing for this movie won't come close to matching that of the Avengers movie. They will try to market it, but...You have one good guy, one bad guy and one good/bad girl. And all three are dressed in black or khaki's and a coat. Try selling that?

Yes, you can put Batman on stuff cause he's recognizable, but Bane is only familiar to fanboys and Catwoman is barely recognizable. If she looked a little more like Julie Newmar, it would be a little easier to market. Also, haven't these already been shown?

I think WBros will wait until the Avengers movie hype falls off a bit. Even then, Batman looks only slightly different from his first appearance. Nothing really new with his costume. Not even a bat with yellow around it...boring. I mean, couldn't they have at least added some nipples to spruce it up a bit?

@Moriarty
No problem, always willing to pass word to fellow NOLANITES. As i get word ill post it on here.

As I stated in a previous article, The Hunger Games has pretty much set the standard for the Box office for the summer. 155 million.....thats a tuffie to beat but WE all know that is like a cake walk for "some" movies.

Let the Summer of CBM's begin!!

Life size Bane bobble head, awesome!

Hahaha is that the Hoff in the background of that pic thinking 'Oh shit here he comes!' @AztecaAguilar04? Or maybe he's thinking 'is that midgit trying to curb stomp that cop? KIT, take care of the lil guy! KIT's busy? Pamela, sort this shit out."
