The Dark Knight Rises gets a new Bane poster


As the prologue prepares to storm IMAX screenings of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol , The Dark Knight Rises has scored a new poster.

This one puts the big bad, Tom Hardy's Bane, front and centre, and things aren't looking too good for Batman.

Not only is there that ominous tagline ('The Legend Ends'), but in the foreground we can see Bats' cowl smashed into shards. And it's raining, which is never nice.

So, is Bane actually going to break the Bat in this trilogy-closer? All signs are currently indicating yes.

Check out the poster in full here:

The Dark Knight Rises opens on 20 July 2012.
