The first official image from the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises is online! It’s Bane! Early this morning a website for the DKR went live at thedarkknightrise.com It was nothing but a black screen with some creepy chanting. But some smart folks got in to the sound file and found a twitter hashtag #thefirerises. When you tweeted the hashtag images slowly began to appear at this address. The images that appeared were the faces of those who tweeted the hashtag. Eventually the image above was formed. This was similar to how Joker was revealed for the last movie.
Bane and Catwoman are the villains of the new movie and while I doubt we’ll see Catwoman anytime soon (Harvey Two-face wasn’t seen until on screen), it’s great to get a peek at Bane. Surely, he will be a tough foe to beat.
