New Dark Knight Rises Poster
Very similar to the fist teaser poster we saw, this poster has the bat symbol, which outlines a crumbling Gotham, set ablaze with a intimidating figure of Batman standing admits the carnage. While it is derivative of the first poster I do like this new version.
This poster does raise a question for me and that is the motivation of the villain Bane in this movie. In the movie The Dark Knight the motivation for the Joker’s psychopathic rampage was to simply watch things be destroyed. That does make for a frightening and interesting villain. I don’t think they can repeat that motivation. Bane does look like he is bent on destroying Gotham but what is his motivation for doing so? Based on rumors my opinion is that this movie will come full circle and resolve elements of Batman Begins which depicted Ra’s al Ghul and the League of Shadows as a misguided group wanting to destroy evil. I think Bane will be an instrument of Ra’s al Ghul and the League of Shadows intention of destroying Gotham as a means of ridding the world of evil.
