‘The Dark Knight Rises’: Six New Character Posters Revealed (PHOTOS)

Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises is one of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer and while the world waits for its July 20 box office debut, Warner Bros. has whet your appetite with the release of six new character posters.

In the movie, Christian Bale reprises his role as Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne, while some new faces and characters appear in the film including Anne Hathaway as Catwoman and Tom Hardy as the villain Bane.

Check out the brand new character movie posters in the gallery above.

The film is set eight years after Dark Knight — which came out in 2008 and featured the late Heath Ledger as the Joker. In the newest trailer, Batman is shown beaten up and held captive by Bane.

Dark Knight Rises begins after Batman took the fall for Two Face’s crimes and now a new terrorist leader, Bane, overwhelms Gotham.

As always, the superhero resurfaces to protect a city that brands him an enemy.
