Batman: The Dark Knight Rises Poster
The Dark Knight Rises is one of the most anticipated films of 2012. Fans are curious about how the franchise will end and the latest poster may be hinting at a grim conclusion.
The poster shows Bane walking away from a broken Batman helmet. While it may not mean anything, it immediately brings up the possibility that the series could break with tradition and end with the death of a hero. In the comic world, Bane, at one point, broke Batman’s back. For a while people suspected that this comic, The Man that Broke the Bat, was one of the many that inspired the movie. Broken helmet = broken bat? Then there’s the very real possibility that it’s simply an ad campaign. Think about it, how can you get emotionally invested in a character that you know is in no real danger?
For me this series has always been about taking Batman to that dark place, the place he should be, and just exploring that uncensored. It would be disappointing if Christopher Nolan went for the standard ending. That doesn’t mean I’d feel let down if Batman lives, I’ll be happy as long as they don’t keep him alive just because he’s Batman. He has to earn it.
What do you think? Do you think that the poster is just a marketing ploy? Are you excited about the film? Would you like a dark ending for the franchise?
