Debuting on Facebook earlier this week, we have the brand new poster for Christopher Nolan’s final instalment in his Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises.

Seeing the return of Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, aka The Batman, we see the dark-suited superhero take on his biggest and fiercest nemesis yet, Bane (Tom Hardy).

Whilst the poster has already had a large lash of criticism, I don’t think the Photoshop job is that bad. It actually makes a very decent poster for the film’s upcoming release; so what if Batman has only been cropped onto the last poster we saw? At least it’s a bit of an improvement.

Besides, it’s not as if anything is going to alter our excitement this close to the its release.

Also starring Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson and Michael Caine, The Dark Knight Rises will be with us from 20th July.
