UPDATE: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Book Cover Art of Batman Fighting Bane

Too bad we still have to wait til July to see these two slug it out. This is an image that closely resembles a previously seen low resolution image, but it's more cartoony for a children's book.

The Dark Knight Rises: Batman versus Bane (I Can Read Book 2)

Book Description - Batman battles Bane to free Gotham City from crime and destruction. Bane terrorizes Gotham City; that is, until Batman comes to the rescue.



Check out the close-up image of Batman's smashed mask. I posted these head knockers in the past, it was blurry promo image, but now you can see some better looks.

The Dark Knight Rises Bane Head Knocker!






The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.

This is too funny for some relevant reason. :-)

Looks like they are figthing in the Batcave!!!
nailbiter111 - 3/23/2012, 6:29 PM
you might be right. is that the batcave?
rockerdude22 - 3/23/2012, 6:30 PM
It's just a kid's book cover, but cool nonetheless. Still can't decide whether I think Bane, The Lizard, or Loki will become the best CBM villian of 2012.

nailbiter111 - 3/23/2012, 7:03 PM
there is just something so jarring about seeing that smash mask
CPBuff22 - 3/23/2012, 7:09 PM
So the smashed mask... I swear that happened in Batman Begins.
nailbiter111 - 3/23/2012, 7:11 PM
lol well that was a little different.
venkman9993592 - 3/23/2012, 7:15 PM
thats an awesome illustration of batman. it's a shame DC still prefers to show batman in what looks like tights when they could render him in kick ass all black armor. the best grey and blue/black illustration of Batz looks lame compared to this pic
zachshivey - 3/23/2012, 7:21 PM
I wonder when the head knocker drops....I'm gonna ask the Easter bunny at the mall tomorrow if he can make this happen
zachshivey - 3/23/2012, 7:24 PM
And wait...correct me if I'm wrong but in the prologue bane was wearing that wrist guard thing on his left hand at the end when he was carrying the broken mask. How's come on everything else it's on the left?!
AUSSYACE - 3/23/2012, 7:37 PM
THAT'S GOLD !!!
ThreeBigTacos - 3/23/2012, 7:41 PM
Batman's foot is coming out of Bane's ass. Foreshadowing?
TheOverlord - 3/23/2012, 7:42 PM
As a parent of young kids, I'm pretty horrified they're making this into an early elementary book. Not taking my kids to this one! Will definitely see it myself, though.

TAG YOUR IT!

At least the bobble head is antomically accurate to the movie...
BigSexyJr - 3/23/2012, 8:12 PM
Is he gonna smell his fingers next?
zachshivey - 3/23/2012, 9:29 PM
Yea I see that being the first fight. A friend of mine was an extra in Pittsburgh & he said the city hall fight is past the midway point.
valeriesghost - 3/23/2012, 9:54 PM
I want that bane bobble head so bad. He looks bad ass there. To bad he won't in the film.
Poopyman - 3/23/2012, 10:33 PM
I cant wait to see Bane BREAK Batmans back! He's gonna shatter his armor into a thousand pieces.
Poopyman - 3/23/2012, 10:34 PM
By the way, i still have my Batman Returns school folders. It looks very similar to that!
zachshivey - 3/23/2012, 10:55 PM
Poopymans avatar looks like a rubber nipple from ren & stimpy
Equivocal - 3/23/2012, 11:44 PM
a lot better than the toys released so far about this movie !
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/24/2012, 7:29 AM
I'd buy it for the mask
