Well, now that Marvel’s THE AVENGERS has been dominating at the box office over the past few weeks, Warner Bros. and DC Comics feel it’s time to shift the general public’s view away from Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and have their focus squarely on the final chapter (for this set of talent anyways) of Chris Nolan’s Batman Epic. Earlier today, we brought you a new one-sheet for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and now we have 6 new character posters for the upcoming film. I have to say I like the first set the best, but all are still well done. Nothing special, but definitely not bad either. I’m still not sold on Catwoman’s costume, but maybe in context it will look better. I never really liked the still pictures of Captain America’s new suit, but in the film, it looks fine and doesn’t distract.
So check out the posters below and let us know which one is your favorite.
