The second phase of marketing for The Dark Knight Rises is underway and you’re also probably going to start hearing a little more about it as Warner Bros. recently sent out award screeners, mine arrived earlier today and I have to say… I wish I was a little more excited, but I’m sure I’ll give it another watch before the end of the year and I expect it will hold up better than The Avengers did upon my first home viewing.
None of that, however, is the reason for this post. The reason for this post are the three unused posters for the film that began circulating the net earlier today from advertising company Trailer Park.
I actually like all three of these, the third of which is really more an “idea” than anything else and doesn’t let on it’s the third film in the Batman franchise, but knowing what it is actually makes it far cooler. In fact, it makes me wonder what the chances these posters could ever be sold. I have to assume fans of The Dark Knight Rises would love to have a limited edition poster like that on their wall.
