The viral campaign for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES has kicked off in a big way! The first official image from the film has been uncovered and, as you can see, it's a creepy Tom Hardy as the villainous Bane. Way cool! (Click on the pic to see a bigger version.)

Additionally, the film's official site has opened. Sort of. If you go to TheDarkKnightRises.WarnerBros.com, you'll be taken to a blank screen while a chanting goes on in the background. Weird...

As we told you yesterday, production has just kicked off on the Chris Nolan-directed sequel, which has a JULY 20, 2012 release date planned. In addition to Hardy it stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman.

Extra Tidbit: Sure beats Joel Schumacher's version of Bane, doesn't it?

I think it looks cool. And let's remember this image is meant to be a tease so, of course we're not getting a full on shot any time soon. Even so, it's alreay better then what we got in Batman and Robin.

schumacher's 'batman and robin' is and always will be the apotheosis of batman films. nolan could learn a thing or two from him.

...um, i think this is probably sarcasm.
