Warner Bros. on Monday released the first official poster for the highly anticipated 'Dark Knight Rises,' the long-awaited sequel to 2008's Oscar-winning Batman movie, 'The Dark Knight.' The poster doesn't reveal too much; only the famous Batman symbol is shown amidst an 'Inception'-esque row of buildings, that appear to be falling apart. But the, uh, dark imagery is still enough to get us very excited for Christopher Nolan's threequel, which stars Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and, of course, Christian Bale, who is reprising his role as the Caped Crusader. 'The Dark Knight Rises' hits theaters next summer. Check out a larger version of the poster below.
