Hot on the heels of the jaw-dropping and totally freakin' awesome The Dark Knight Rises trailer come new high-def pics of the caped crusader, played by Christian Bale, and his new mortal enemy, Bane (Tom Hardy).
Released by Warner Bros., the new pics reveal nothing spoilery about director Christopher Nolan's eagerly awaited last Batman opus, but they are full of high-def goodness.
And though some of you may have already seen these pics printed in Empire magazine, now you can gaze at them without Photoshop editing and obscuring text.
Here's the studio blurb:
