The Dark Knight Rises promotional items with more Batman!

Some new promotional items for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES have popped up online, this time featuring the Bat-Man himself. We've been swamped with images of Bane and Catwoman, but haven't seen as much in the way of the titular character.

Now, courtesy of some wall stickies and a backpack, we get some cool-looking promo artwork of The Dark Knight himself, which ain't too shabby. The suit has certainly evolved from film-to-film, going from a rather theatrical costume to a more functional suit of armor. I'm lovin' it like McDonalds.

Take a gander:

Pretty cool. I'm glad to see Batman gettin' some promotional love. Not that seeing Bane or Catwoman isn't equally cool, but it's nice to see some imagery of the character the whole damn story is about from time to time. I'd like to see some more of Talia Al Ghul Miranda Tate as well, but I'm guessing they want to keep that under wraps for a bit. Since, y'know, we're all fooled as to who Marion Cotillard is really playing.

Also, you'll find below a foreign promo sheet for Mattel's THE DARK KNIGHT RISES figure line. Nothing too exciting, but...there it is.

THE DARK KNIGHT. July 20th. Boom.

Marion Cotillard.  Thank you for this.

Extra Tidbit: Do you prefer Batman's traditional blue and grey costume or the straight black? Do you think the blue and grey costume could work in film today?

I prefer the black suit as what is in the comics doesn't always translate well in movies, hence why they always change it up like F4 & X-Men, I liked all the suits in the previous movies as well, sans nipples of course.

I can see this Batman picture becoming a meme.
As for Cotillard's picture: My God woman! If you jump, I'll jump!

Tidbit

I like Burton's classic Batman suit better than Nolan's version (which I love as well).

I do like the fact that the suit keeps evolving from film to film. The black suit is the way to go though in Nolan's universe.

When you consider the suit is something picked by a man to wear as he fights crime at night, the black just makes so much more sense. The blue and grey would look incredibly awkward in a straightforward Batman film.

Tom Hardy has a massive back

The new Batman suit is more realistic as something a guy in combat would wear for protection (rather than just a flashy suit), and in that regard it works better for the "Nolan universe." Just as the Burton version worked well for Burton's vision. Sometimes things aren't universally better or worse - it's all relative and depends on the context.

I prefer the classic Black and Grey costume with just the big black bat on the chest. I like that they've added some grey into the suit for TDKR, but I doubt it with be noticable on film in dark lighting anyway. If they were ever going to get away with the Blue and Grey it would have been in the Schumacher films.
