Okay. So, the first teaser poster for “The Dark Knight Rises” was awesome, no? Sure, it may have reminded us of “Inception”, but whatever. Both movies were good and there’s no denying that when something “Dark Knight” related comes out, people get pumped.

That said, Warner Bros. has just released this brand spankin’ new teaser poster featuring Tom Hardy as Bane and a shattered Batman mask.

In case you missed it, be sure to read up on our take of the IMAX prologue about “The Dark Knight Rises” and if you care to check out the teaser trailer, click here.

Can’t wait for the marketing to pick up for this film. Bale may be hanging up his Batman gear up for good, but boy, it sure will be hard to top his Batman. Maybe if Warner Bros. & Nolan throw some moolah his with with a good script, he’ll give it a go for round 4? Either way, Bale & Nolan have done a hell of a job thus far.
