By Josh Wilding - 3/7/2012
Christopher Nolan returns to complete the 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-Levitt join the cast regulars along with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) and Tom Hardy as the powerful villain Bane. Christian Bale prowls the night as the Caped Crusader, fighting crime and corruption with the help of Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman.


Revealed in Newsarama's background as a part of an advert for the relaunch of DC's new website, we now have this brand new image of Christian Bale as Batman from The Dark Knight Rises. It appears to be a mixture of live action photography and the CGI artwork typically associated with toy packaging, but makes for a striking image nonetheless.



STARRING:

Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Michael Caine as Alfred
Gary Oldman as Commissioner Jim Gordon
Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox
Tom Hardy as Bane
Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman
Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake
Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate
Josh Pence as Ra's Al Ghul

He looks pissed! Did Bane insult his mother?
NeoBaggins - 3/7/2012, 8:20 AM

He hasn't looked this cool since Batman Begins!
HavocPrime - 3/7/2012, 8:34 AM
He does look pretty cool in that pic.

@Jduke - Holy hell the pose is uncanny, sadly as well, thats about as close as we will get to having Batman and Superman together on film.
TheYesGuy - 3/7/2012, 8:35 AM

I'll just repeat it...that looks cool, indeed.

JDUKE25: Haha, smart!
WolvieCBM - 3/7/2012, 8:41 AM
NeoBaggins: It's not. Well not as whole anyway. Combo of digital art and photography. Kind of like the one we got a while back, but in HQ so it looks better.

Banes going to break the bat
dahamma - 3/7/2012, 9:24 AM
Nice!! One costume they got right in this film!
ClarkStark - 3/7/2012, 9:25 AM
Is there any difference between this costume and his old TDK costume?

Iron Man armor upgrades for every movie kind of spoiled it.
GingerBird - 3/7/2012, 9:25 AM
This is just the calm before the storm my friends. New Trailer in May.
HughJasol - 3/7/2012, 9:27 AM
That looks F'n BADASS! Batman is ready to whoop some ass in 2012.
Betty - 3/7/2012, 9:29 AM
The only difference i see is that they finally got rid of his big, gay, jaw muscles! Yay!
GUNSMITH - 3/7/2012, 9:31 AM
