The Dark Knight Rises Poster

The film, the final one on Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, is still a year away, but we have the first official poster. We know Bane and Catwoman are in it, and that’s about it really. Like the posters for the first two films, it doesn’t reveal much. Upon seeing it though, it did vaguely remind me of two comic covers, which also use the cityscape as a Batman design element. Below is the poster, which doesn’t even feature the title as a main element, but rather as the official site.

That’s Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #150 from 2002, with a John Cassady cover, and the third issue of the still unreleased Batman: Europa mini-series with a cover from Diego Latorre.
