Now that Joss Whedon's The Avengers has had its share of the superhero glory, it's time to look forward to the final two-month marketing stretch of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. Things have been pretty quiet since that last trailer, but now the film is back on our radar with a fiery new poster.

This poster echoes the film's original onesheet, which featured crumbling buildings forming the shape of a bat. That shape is still there, but in place of the silhouetted ears, the Batman's own ears make an appearance, along with the rest of him. Check it out, and click to embiggen:

Fire hasn't really been a theme in the film's marketing thus far, but any Batman film's bound to have its fair share of explosions, and we know Bane's down for blowing stuff up. We'll just have to see how much of this fire makes its way into the film when The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20.
