First “The Dark Knight Rises” Teaser Poster

What a tease! Check out the first poster for The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s hugely-anticipated follow-up to The Dark Knight.

Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman are all back for more Batman action, and this time they’re joined by a host of newbies including Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, and Matthew Modine. None of the lead cast are featured — in fact, it’s a dark, arty piece with Gotham City crumbling to reveal the famous The Caped Crusader’s Bat symbol in the sky.

We’ll have to wait almost a whole year to see if the superhero epic lives up to the hype. The Dark Knight Rises opens in cinemas next summer.
