Just yesterday the latest one-sheet for The Dark Knight Rises hit the web, bringing with it a heated debate*. Now the weather outlook appears to be getting distinctly colder and wetter, with six new character banners arriving, all featuring a snow and rain theme.
Yes, once again it’s the Big Three – Bats, Bane and Catwoman – who get the love in a series that Michael Fish would go mad for (or, since the source is the movie’s French Facebook page, perhaps that should be Michel Poisson?**) Yes, given that Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle predicts in the trailer that a storm is coming, these somehow seem apt, even if we do wonder why they all think they have to be tough and stand out in the mucky weather when there are vehicles nearby.
