Well, yes there is. It is the hint.
There's a hole where Batman used to be and the city is crumbling without him.
It couldn't be much more obvious. Don't miss the wood for the trees, folks!
If you remember how the last ended, and what Batman had to do, it makes perfect sense.
This film will pick up from there / from that idea.


I wouldn't say that it's a hint for the plot. That's all very metaphorical, and I'm sure you're correct, but it's not really a hint of plot.

I guess they mean, just as the Dark Knight poster which showed a firey logo on the side of a skyscraper (which didn't happen in the movie), this probably doesn't show anything that will occur in the film.

Great poster. Does anyone else think the bit of rubble on the left had side looks like the Superman shield?

I guess they mean, just as the Dark Knight poster which showed a firey logo on the side of a skyscraper (which didn't happen in the movie), this probably doesn't show anything that will occur in the film.



The 'fire bat' logo on the DK poster was, imo a visual representation calling the bat signal to mind: the bat signal draws Batman out to do his work. The actions of the Joker (some poeple just want to see the world burn), visualised via metaphorical twist on the bat signal, trying to draw him out to a showdown. The story of the film in a symbol, not a literal form

There are various things that spring to mind for the new poster. Gotham crumbling without batman, is one. More likely I think is Gotham crumbling/Gotham in darkness and the (at present) fugitive/hated batman is the light the city needs. When Gotham realises this, The Dark Knight Rises (in their estimation). Slightly religious overtones (people look to the heavens for a saviour, and in this image of dark decay and destruction, the 'saviour' is Batman).


Or, more simply, this is a more literally a depiction of the bat symbol, with Gotham crying out to be saved (ie the story hint being that the iconography of that signal we know so well will finally be completed by this film, a redemption after the smashing of the bat symbol at the end of the last one).

Very evocative poster. And you actually have to check the title of the film is even on it at first look. The power of symbols...

Incidentally, yet another take on the image: It's the end of the story, The Dark Knight has risen to smash through the darkness and let in the light. He has died (in terms of Gotham's faith in him) and he has been resurrected, and he ascends into myth, or to put it another way, "Legend, Mr Wayne"

Exellent poster kinda reminds me of the BatMan storyline where Gotham had an Earthquake & was quarantined off by the Government.

Look closer at the Batman logo, it appears to be a clear sky, he's leading Gotham out of the Darkness, maybe! V excited tho!


 When I look at it I see a grey, brooding and overcast sky

Batman's always had great posters and symbols and this one is pretty f***ing sweet!

I could maybe believe that's a cat's eye in the top right but I'm not seeing anything else.

Everybody zoom in on the bottom left corner. Can you see it. Look closely. See it yet. Look closer. thats right, It,s an on-set picture of Anne Hathaway being taken up the chuff by Christian Bale. Oh for God's sake please stop with the "I can see this, I can see that" crap. There are no hidden pics or symbols in this poster, period.


But where is the fun in that?  nahh I would agree some sugestions are rediculous

That's for real. And It seems to me what appears to be 'Bane's Theme' uses the same two notes as the Jaws theme, reversed and played slower.
