Dark Knight Rises Teaser Poster

Looks good, not really much to say about it, though Slashfilm tries: “The questions: is Gotham being destroyed or rebuilt? Is that debris falling or, as the title suggests, rising? The composition also suggests a Gotham citizen looking up and seeing the outline of a bat as the only bright sky (and it isn’t even particularly bright) against the devastation of Gotham, implying that Batman gets his redemption and a truly heroic end to this trilogy. But there is so much damage — that’s not quite the dream of redemption and heroism that many of us might have.”

The one interesting scrap of info I’ve heard about Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises is that he effectively ends his trilogy and Warner Bros. executives aren’t happy about it. Put another way, the studio won’t be able to make a part four after this one and will have to reboot the franchise with a new actor/director.

Given that Bane is in this movie, my guess, if I had to make one, is that Batman gets his redemption and saves Gotham but in the process has his back broken and ends up a cripple. Or something. I can’t imagine Nolan would kill off Batman, would he?
